The waving hand emoji shows a single disembodied right hand, raised and palm forward. It is usually surrounded by movement marks to give the impression of movement and of waving. It is usually an emoji yellow color, though some platforms do allow for skin tone modification. The emoji is used to say “hello” and “goodbye”, just as the gesture does in real life. It can also be used to grab someone’s attention to an unread message or post. The “goodbye” meaning of this emoji can be quite broad, and is not solely used as a salutation. It can also be used to say a (perhaps permanent) “goodbye” to a conversation or even a friendship.
