Google Redesigned Its Burger Emoji After Users Noticed The Cheese Misplacement

Google releases the new emoji with Android 8.1 update

 Android 8.1 update

Finally, Google has accepted that the cheese needs to put above the patty in a burger instead of beneath it. In case you missed the debate on Android’s burger emoji last month. Here is the flashback. The Android users were engaged in a debate over the burger emoji on Twitter after a tweet addressing the burger emoji problem went viral on Twitter. The tweet mentioned that the burger in the Android emojis contained cheese at the wrong position. “We will drop everything else and sort this issue immediately” Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google replied humorously.

 

 

By keeping its promise Google has redesigned the burger emoji by putting the cheese above the patty in Android 8.1  which was launched on Monday. The issue may seem a very minor but the tweet received more than 51,000 likes and 25,000 which shows that a lot of people do care about burger emoji. However, the debate got routed towards the right way of stacking the cheese in a burger on going down in tweets. You will find very interesting arguments for both the side if you have spare time to read out the whole thread. According to the Emojipedia, Google has changed the burger emoji after some days later in the debate and launched it with Android 8.1 developer preview version.

 

Even, Google didn’t miss the opportunity to make a little fun out of the matter by serving an ‘Android burger’ at lunch. A Google employee tweeted the pictures of the Android burger listed on the lunch menu at Google’s office. The Android burger was intentionally prepared by placing the cheese underneath the patty. Along with the redesigned burger emoji there, few more tweaks can also be seen to other emojis in Android 8.1 developer preview. The new updated Android version includes the fully filled beer stein and little change to the cheese emoji to make holes on the cheese look more real according to the Emojipedia.

All the changes are done in the Android 8.1 developer preview by the Google so you can access this emojis only in the developer preview version. The users need to wait for the public release of the latest Android version which will most probably be coming in December. The Android 8.1 will be available to the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel C, Nexus 5X, and Nexus 6P at that time.
