WHEW, Google bound a burger emoji in Android 8.1


Apparently, Google done good on a guarantee to repair a awful hamburger emoji, in a arise of an online disturbance final month. In box we missed it, when a chatter about a problem with a emoji went viral – the cheese in Google’s burger emoji is underneath a bun! The horror! – Google CEO Sundar Pichai replied he would “drop everything” to residence this issue. According to Emojipedia, that has now happened. The new burger pattern in a Android 8.1 recover puts a cheese in a correct place: on tip of a burger patty.

The strange chatter about a problem has over 51,000 likes and 25,000 retweets, that indicates that a lot of people indeed do caring about teenager sum like this, even if they seem silly.

But a ensuing contention did encourage some discuss about a “right” approach to smoke-stack cheeseburger toppings. (It’s a fun thread, if you’ve got a time.)

Pichai’s response, while a bit joking, did contend that Google would make a change to a emoji if people could come to some arrange of accord on a matter of burger toppings.

A few days after a online debate, Google had a small fun with a matter by portion adult a lunch during their offices where an “Android Burger” featuring cheese underneath a burger patty was on a menu.

Now, it appears that a infancy who trust a cheese goes on tip of a bun won out.

According to Emojipedia, a site that marks a emoji star and all a changes, a burger pattern has been updated in a stirring Android 8.1 release, announced on Monday.

The new Google burger emoji in a updated chronicle of Android now matches all a others where a cheese sits on top. (Though there’s still some discuss over where a lettuce goes…beneath a burger? Really Apple?)

The updated chronicle of Android also includes a few other emoji tweaks, Emojipedia noted, including a now filled drink stein for a drink and beers emojis (instead of half full, as before), and a tweak to a cheese emoji so a holes on a crowd no longer demeanour embellished on.

Android users can entrance a new burger emoji immediately if they’re using a Android 8.1 developer preview; differently you’ll have to wait for a open recover of 8.1 due out after this year.

Google declined to rigourously comment, though we know that a change is permanent. Android 8.1 will hurl out in December, reaching Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel C, Nexus 5X, and Nexus 6P during that time.
