What does the WhatsApp ‘glowing heart’ emoji mean?

As we mentioned, WhatsApp has an incredible arsenal of emojis on its platform. It may surprise you, but each of them has an official name, which is assigned in the design process. This means that each emoticon had a specific intention, a kind of official meaning, which mutates and transforms once it is released to the public.

In the case of the ‘bright heart’ of WhatsApp, its official name is Sparkling Heart and it is represented as a heart of an intense pink color, almost fuchsia, with two yellow stars around it, one at the lower left end and the other at the upper right end.

Although it is shaped like a heart, the universal symbol of romantic love, its use is different from that of the red heart or the pink heart with a bow. According to Emojipedia, a website specialized in the meanings of emoticons, this emoticon indicates a kind of “pride” about your love. Alternatively, you can also use it when you like someone and are feeling ‘butterflies in your stomach’.
