WhatsApp: why is there a spiral emoji and what does it mean

Has someone ever sent you the spiral emoji on WhatsApp? Know its true meaning.

Sipral Whatsapp

WhatsApp is the application that has become a favorite to chat with our family and friends, either through text messages or simply a video call. But not only that, but it is also possible to send all kinds of information such as photos, videos, GIFs, animated stickers, among others.

The WhatsApp application is also full of curious details that very few have explored. For example, now you have the ability to activate photos and videos that disappear as soon as they are opened by all your friends.

But not only that, the app is full of what many call emojis. Currently, there are more than 500 emoticons on the messaging platform, some that have fairly explicit meaning, while in some cases support is necessary to know what they are.

This is the case with the spiral emoji. Many say that it is only a worm making a circle, but others relate it to an event in nature. That is why today we will show you what it is and when to really use it on WhatsApp.


As you know in WhatsApp you can find emoticons for all occasions: among yellow faces, as well as sports, professions, vegetables, fruits, animals, geometric figures, among others.

But without a doubt, one that draws attention is the spiral emoji on WhatsApp. Do you know what it is? In order to know its meaning, it is necessary to resort to Emojipedia, the website that is responsible for compiling all the existing icons on the messaging platform.

According to the page, the spiral means a cyclone, hurricane, whirlpool, and tornado. That means that those who thought about a climatic phenomenon were right.

Cyclone, as it is known in English, was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
