๐Ÿ•ต Sleuth or Spy

An undercover investigator, wearing a hat, and sometimes using a magnifying glass to closely inspect evidence. This emoji did not originally recommend emoji modifiers, but a proposal was created to address this.

Sleuth or Spy was approved as part of Unicode 7.0 in 2014.

The Sleuth or Spy emoji supports skin tone modifiers. A yellow (or other non-human) skin tone should be shown by default, unless an emoji modifier is applied.

Platforms without support for emoji modifiers display a missing symbol character (box with a cross, alien, or question mark in it) next to any modified emoji.
