Just as lockdown kicked in from March, ‘quarantine and chill’ became a popular theme with pick-up lines like “Let’s be like covid and catch each other” and “‘Wash your hands so you can hold mine.” Mask mentons also went up 2.5x by April and mentions of the mask emoji went up almost 5x the same month since the beginning of the pandemic. Speaking of emojis, the most popular one was the shrugging emoji which was used to denote the uncertainty of the future and whether they’ll be able to meet up or not.

For a better visual understanding, these were the top trending emojis in India.

Swiping also went up to double-digits as compared to February this year.
