PHP Question

Convert unicode to its actual symbol

How do I convert

\u20B9
to the symbol
in PHP?

I tried utf8_decode() but it is returning the same string.

Answer

You can use json_decode method because JSON directly supports the \uxxxx syntax

$unicodeChar = '\u20B9';
echo json_decode('"'.$unicodeChar.'"');
