compass 🧭

Fans of navigation instruments rejoice with the Compass emoji. If you check it out online, you may notice the emoji’s vast differences between platforms. As in real life, you have a wide array of compass designs to choose from. We usually encounter the compass housed in a gold or silver case.

The design of the compass emoji may be confused with the Timer Clock emoji that also depicts a numberless face, with the only difference being the red-tipped needle on the compass. It also looks a lot like the usual clock face emojis like the Two O’Clock emoji or Twelve O’Clock emoji. Interestingly, before the release of the compass emoji, some users used the clock emojis to talk about compasses in chats and posts. The clock faces also serve more like a compass compared to the fixed needle positions of the actual compass emoji. 12 o’clock to indicate north while 6, 3, and 9 o’clock signify south, east, and west respectively.

🧭 Compass is a fully-qualified emoji as part of Unicode 11.0 which was introduced in 2018.
