Android Oreo Addresses Cheeseburger Emoji Situation

Android Cheeseburger Emoji fixed Our long national nightmare is over WHEW, Google fixed the burger emoji in Android 8.1

It will be in its rightful place above the patty once the update rolls out. Emojis are, however, not the only changes in Android 8.1 Developer Preview 2. Google has promised a fix for the emoji in the latest version of Android 8.1.

The whole revelation was eye-opening, and after seeing Google take the feedback to heart and rid its software of the culinary abomination, concerned emoji users breathed a virtual sigh of relief. The key difference between "Android burger" emoji and any other is that the slice of cheese is placed beneath the patty and atop the lower bun. Google has now corrected it and it now contains liquid all the way to the top. They're also correcting a couple of emojis that have bothered some people because as we all know by now, emojis are serious business. When you type in the search bar, Emojipedia gives you a list of options with an explanation for each, and, of course, the emoji itself including the Cheeseburger Emoji.

Google has updated its hamburger emoji following Internet outrage over the tech titan's upside-down sandwich.

WHEW, Google fixed the burger emoji in Android 8.1
Google finally fixed its horrendous excuse for a burger emoji and I can sleep

The world took issue with the company's burger arrangement - cheese was put between the meat and bottom bun - sparking debate about how a good burger is arranged. Later, Google also served "Android burgers" to its employees at its Seattle office. The burger was an exact replica of the Android Cheeseburger emoji. The spark happened when Thomas Baekdal, writer and media analyst, tweeted about the positions of the patty and cheese in Android and Apple Cheeseburger emojis.

The online community got into a frenzy over it, and Google CEO Sundar Pichai caught wind of it, saying that he will "drop everything else" and update the emoji accordingly depending on what everybody - or at least, the majority - agrees on. Samsung and Apple have a different placement for their Cheeseburger Emoji.
