Google Makes Good On A Promise To Fix The Hamburger Emoji

In the wake of an online debate last month, Google has made good on a promise to fix its controversial hamburger emoji. In case you missed it, when a tweet about the problem with the emoji went viral – the cheese in Google’s burger emoji is under the bun! The horror! – Google CEO Sundar Pichai replied he would “drop everything” to address this issue. The original tweet about the problem has over 51,000 likes and 25,000 retweets, which indicates that a lot of people actually do care about a minor detail like cheese placement. 

According to Emojipedia, that has now happened. The new burger design in the Android 8.1 release puts the cheese in its correct place: on top of the burger patty. The new Google burger emoji in the updated version of Android now matches all the others where the cheese sits on top.
