One of the most popular hearts on WhatsApp is the emoji of the yellow heart Although many users share it or send it to their friends and family to wish them luck or good fortune, this interpretation is wrong and is not related to its true meaning.
According to the official page of Emojipedia The yellow heart emoticon should be used to express pure and sincere love, which flows directly from the heart. It is not related to the love of a couple, but to that of friendship, happiness and joy.
The emoticon of yellow heart was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
