WHEW, Google fixed the burger emoji in Android 8.1

The Monday after that online debate, Google even provided cheeseburgers in their staff cafeteria to help figure out where the cheese really belonged.

On Tuesday - one month after the ordeal shook foodies everywhere - Emojipedia released Google's updated burger emoji, which is now respectably ordered: bun, lettuce, tomato, cheese, patty, bun. The changes, including in some other emojis, came in the Android 8.1 developer preview. 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 first website to capture this fix was Emojipedia.

Besides, Google has also refreshed a few more emojis. It features news, and is supposedly the home of all emojis under the sun.

Ever send a cheeseburger emoji in WhatsApp?

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. Google's Indian-born CEO, Sundar Pichai also joined the heated debate. Later, Google also served "Android burgers" to its employees at its Seattle office. The latest Android 8.1 Oreo Developer Preview 2 comes with a handful of tweaked emojis, including the burger emoji, which now has the cheese slice on top of the patty instead of below. As per the report, a new and improved cheeseburger emoji will have the cheese placed atop the patty, as opposed to underneath it.

This was, supposedly, the very step, which lead the designers and developers to reverse their design decision. It got intense to the point when Google CEO Sundar Pichai himself got involved, promising that they would drop everything to look into that matter (that was a joke if you didn't get it). Samsung and Apple have a different placement for their Cheeseburger Emoji.
