Google finally sets things right by fixing its burger and beer emojis

When an author challenged Google CEO Sundar Pichai via Twitter regarding its emoji burgers, people were quick to react to it. And Pichai didn’t dilly dally either by immediately acknowledging the challenge.

The author pointed out that Google’s burger featured the cheese under the patty than on top of it, which according to Twitter users, is NOT the right way to do it. Someone even suggested the proper order for your hamburger:

But if you compared the different burger emojis, everyone else has other ways of arranging it! The only common thing is that the cheese is always on top of the the patty. So it seems, that is really where the cheese should be.

And by the looks of it, Google got pressured because a month later, they announced that they’ve fixed their burgers emoji. The updated emojis will come out in the upcoming Android 8.1 version.

Of course, people were thrilled by the news saying that the “nightmare is over.”

That’s not all! Google also fixed two other emojis that have been irking several people for the longest time. They made their “Beer” and “Beers” look a bit realistic. If you can recall their beer emojis feature froth spilling on top of a half-filled mug. Is that even possible? Of course not! Beer drinkers know that’s very unreal. So they’ve fixed the bug and decided to give users a full mug of beers.
