What does Obs mean?


‘Obs’ is a short form of the word “Obviously”. It’s used a lot in texting and on the internet. People use ‘Obs’ when they want to show they totally agree with something, or to suggest that something was so clear it maybe didn’t need to be said.

The great thing about ‘Obs’ is that it saves you typing out seven whole letters. That can be a big help when you’re trying to keep a text message short, or when you’re tweeting and every character counts.

But be careful, because not everyone knows what ‘Obs’ means. If you’re talking to someone who’s not up on their text speak, they might get confused. If you’re not sure, it might be safer to use “obvi”, which is a bit more well-known.
