Prayer or high five? Users get confused by meaning of this emoji
A WhatsApp user was ‘heartbroken’ to learn that what he has always thought was a prayer emoji is actually two people high-fiving each other.
The emoji shows what looks like two hands placed together in supplication. However, the truth is now out.
WhatsApp for web allows a user to search various emotions one may want to express. One gets suggestions depending on the words.
So, when one user searched for the word high five, the results they got were unexpected.
“I thought that it’s a prayer hand emoji,” tweeted the user. “My whole life is a lie.”
The discovery has been shared countless times by others who felt equally cheated.

However, searching the words pray, also returns the same emoji. So which is which?
