What is gz short for?


"Gz" is a super-short way of congratulating someone. It is a shortened version of the "gratz" abbreviation of "congrats," which is also short for "congratulations." You might say it's an Inception-like abbreviation-within-an-abbreviation abbreviation.

Teenagers most commonly use the abbreviation when messaging online or in texts, or when gaming. They typically use it sincerely to congratulate someone on an impressive feat, but they also may use it sarcastically to congratulate someone on an unfortunate occurrence.

An example of when you may use "gz" is when messaging your friend who just won a big game. Or, if your friend posts a pic of her new puppy you might say "What a cutie, gz!"


Gz on winning the game last night!
