A pensive, remorseful face. Saddened by life. Quietly considering where things all went wrong. Depicted as a yellow face with sad, closed eyes, furrowed eyebrows, and a slight, flat mouth.
May convey a variety of sad emotions, including feeling disappointed, hurt, or lonely. Less intense than other sad emojis like 😭 Loudly Crying Face and more introspective.
Microsoft's design previously featured a more neutral, bored expression. Samsung’s design previously looked more guilty or worried. Not to be confused with 😌 Relieved Face, which has similarly shaped eyes but in a happier expression.
Pensive Face was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
