Get everyone in a nostalgic mood with the Fax Machine emoji! This emoji shows a picture of a fax machine, a device used to transmit documents over a phone line. Common in the ‘80s to the ‘90s, nearly all schools, homes, and businesses ditched this gadget when the Internet was invented. At present, very few businesses still use it to send and receive information.
Design-wise, the emoji is colored in either black or white or both. It has a keypad, display screen, and handset. Generally, this emoji is quite easy to spot, since it’s similar to how a fax machine looks in real life.
The fax emoji is often applied to indicate or to symbolize anything outdated or old-fashioned. One way to use it would be as part of a Throwback Thursday, or Flashback Friday series along with other old school machine emoji, like the Telephone Receiver emoji or Pager emoji. Expect the Fax Machine emoji to appear in posts, reels, or discussions about wireless information transfer, as well. Since fax machines transmit visual information in black and white, the fax emoji can be used to indicate things that are black and white.
Fax Machine is a fully-qualified emoji as part of Unicode 6.0 which was introduced in 2010.
