According to The Verge, the new OS will ship with a new and improved cheeseburger emoji in which the cheese is placed on top of the patty. While Android Oreo 8.1 doesn’t have a lot that s changed, Google CEO Sundar Pichai asked the team to drop everything to solve the issue. The new Google burger emoji now matches all the others where the cheese sits on top.
If in case you are unaware of the situation, a tweet about the problem with the burger emoji went viral. While Google CEO Sundar Pichai took note of the wrongly placed emoji, the company even had a little fun by serving Burger lunch at their offices where they placed the cheese underneath the burger patty.
Well, according to Emojipedia, the hamburger emoji, now famously known as the cheeseburger, was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015. Since then, it’s been up to each company to decide how it wants to replace the ingredients in the burger. For instance, Samsung layers the burger with tomato, cheese, lettuce and then the patty; whereas with Apple, the cheese slice above the patty.
