WHEW, Google fixed the burger emoji in Android 8.1

Google Has Officially Fixed Its Illegitimate Cheeseburger Emoji

Late last month, media analyst Thomas Baekdal pointed out the long-time mistake: While Apple takes a traditional approach (tomato and cheese atop the patty), Google uses melted Muenster to cushion the meat at the base.

Emojipedia broke the news update on Twitter, after the 44-year-old tech tycoon had delivered his promise.

We're of course talking about the hamburger (well, technically, the cheeseburger) emoji, depicted by the search giant's reality-disconnected software engineers with a slice of cheese placed between the bottom half of the bun and meat patty. After getting "grilled" Google's CEO jokingly said he would drop everything to fix the issue. 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.

But the resulting discussion did foster some debate about the "right" way to stack cheeseburger toppings. Later, Google also served "Android burgers" to its employees at its Seattle office. The popular website, "The Verge first reported on Wednesday that the Android 8.1 OS will come with the new and improved Cheeseburger Emoji where the cheese comes before the patty and not the other way round as envisioned by the designer of the emoji". They're also correcting a couple of emojis that have bothered some people because as we all know by now, emojis are serious business.

Pope Francis and Aung San Suu Kyi avoid Rohingya crisis discussion
After Myanmar, he will move on to Bangladesh to meet a small group of Rohingya refugees in a symbolic gesture. On Wednesday, the Pope will celebrate a huge Mass in Yangon, Efe news reported.

The cheeseburger emoji debate is finally over, as Google has resolved things in Android 8.1 Oreo.

The new Google burger emoji in the updated version of Android now matches all the others where the cheese sits on top.

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.
