Have you been waiting patiently for the right time to bring something up? If you’re in a group chat, it can be hard to get everyone’s attention. With the raised hand emoji, your friends will know you have something important to share. It could also mean that you’re volunteering to help your friends with something they asked for. Either way, it will turn the attention of the group to you, and you’ll have the floor. Why get mad that they’re not listening to you, when you can quickly indicate you want to talk with this emoji?
