Google has finally fixed the burger emoji - and the reactions are hilarious

Google Has Officially Fixed Its Illegitimate Cheeseburger Emoji

And now, it seems like the cheeseburger emoji debate has been taken care of. The debate is this: Do you put the cheese above or below the patty?

And thanks to his vigilance, the forthcoming Android 8.1 release will include a more edible-looking emoji, with cheese layered on top of the patty.

Fixing cheeseburger emoji faux pas follows the promise made by Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google a month ago tweeting that, "he would drop everything else we are doing and address on Monday", in late October after the fouled order was denoted on Twitter. But for now, I think the forgiving process can begin.

True burger fans may still need to hold their breath a little bit longer, as the Android 8.1 is still in the developer preview stage and a full release is expected when the final version of Android 8.1 is ready to roll out. The discussion was exclusively based on the placement of cheese in Google's burger emoji.The discussion gathered a lot of attention on Twitter and many other social media platforms.


The corrected versions of emojis were first spotted by Emojipedia, which is now available under the Android 8.1 Developer Preview 2. They're also correcting a couple of emojis that have bothered some people because as we all know by now, emojis are serious business.

This cheeseburger conspiracy sparked quite an intense and extensive debate on social media over where the cheese should be placed in the Cheeseburger Emoji, both for Apple and Android's emojis in the recent updates. This was when the tech giant served Android burgers to staff at the beginning of November in its Seattle office.

They've also fixed the cheese emoji that looked like the holes in the cheese were stickers, but in Android 8.1, they look like actual holes. The incorrect version of a single beer glass emoji showed it half empty but with the froth magically dripping from the top.
