gear ⚙️

Enhance your posts about machines, clocks, and bikes by sharing the Gear emoji. This emoji shows a picture of a cog, a gray, metal device with a number of teeth around its circular periphery. When a cog rotates, it produces power that helps make machines, and other mechanical instruments move.

Since gears represent movement, the gear emoji is often used to refer to speed-or any form of action, in any context. It is also a good emoji to use to refer to the settings icon found on many electronic devices, such as phones, computers, laptops, and so on. For this reason, it’s sometimes called the settings emoji, or cog emoji.

Since it is also used to symbolize the settings icon in gadgets, you may bring the gear emoji into posts and conversations about setting something up, or fixing a specific thing. Meanwhile, if you prefer to talk more particularly about the cogs found in wheels, a good combination to get your point across would be to combine the Wheel emoji and the gear emoji.

⚙️ Gear is a fully-qualified emoji as part of Unicode 4.1 which was introduced in 2005, and was added to Emoji 1.0.
