detective 🕵️

When something feels off, but you just can’t put a finger on it, it’s time to pull out the Detective emoji. This emoji shows a person wearing an outfit popularized by fictional detective Sherlock Holmes. The “Sherlock look,” is made up of a suit, tie, leather hat, and magnifying glass. In the emoji, the person is holding up a magnifying glass to his/her eye. This emoji is also known as the Investigator emoji, or Sleuth emoji.

Send this emoji if you’d like to show you’re looking into something, or if you’d like to tell someone you’re searching for answers or information about a particular situation. It’s also a good emoji to use to describe someone who is acting like a detective – they’ve got great attention to detail, a deductive mind, and analytical and reasoning abilities! If your friend just told you about a suspicious conversation he or she had with someone, and is attempting to “read between the lines” with you, activate your inner Sherlock, include the Detective emoji in the conversation!

In the middle of posting about a recent mystery movie or TV series you watched, insert the Detective emoji to animate your content! If you’ve got more time on your hands, why not completely represent the movie plot using only emojis? Insert the Supervillain emoji to symbolize the bad guys, the Police Officer emoji to represent the people running after the scoundrels, etc.

🕵️ Detective is a fully-qualified emoji as part of Unicode 7.0 which was introduced in 2014, and was added to Emoji 0.7.
