Before the end of October, Google found itself embroiled in a huge controversy about hamburgers. More specifically, hamburger emoji.
After the release of Android 8.0 Oreo, it became known that Google had a very interesting idea for where the cheese should be located on a hamburger: on the bottom, below the meat patty. Above the meat was the lettuce and tomato, which many wouldn’t argue with. But that cheese location sent many people decrying Google via social media networks.
Seeing how it was so obviously important to so many people, Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai confirmed to the world that he would “drop everything” and fix the issue as quickly as he could. And sure enough, it looks like Pichai has kept his word.
As noted today by Emojipedia, Google has fixed the burger emoji in the recent Android 8.1 Oreo beta update. As you can see from the image above, the cheese has been moved to above the meat patty, sitting just under the tomato and below the piece of lettuce.
All is right with the world again.
Google has also “fixed” the beer emojis. In Android 8.0, the stein of beer was only half full and yet the top of the big glass was covered in froth, which didn’t make any sense at all. In Android 8.1 Oreo, those beer steins are completely full of liquid so the froth makes more sense.
The updated emoji will be available in Android 8.1, which Google just released the last developer preview for and will see a public launch in December.
