Google Clears Up The Cheeseburger Emoji Debate And Then Some With Android 8.1 Oreo


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

Now the cheese is on top of the patty and no longer on the bottom bun — as things should be, according to thousands of users.

Cheeseburger Emoji Art Fixed

Aside from some Pixel 2 issues such as flashing screens and coming in Android-less, one of the biggest gripes that people had with Google is the cheeseburger emoji.

As mentioned earlier, the cheese was placed on the bun, under the patty, tomatoes, lettuce, and top bun.

The online community got into a frenzy over it, and Google CEO Sundar Pichai caught wind of it, saying that he will "drop everything else" and update the emoji accordingly depending on what everybody — or at least, the majority — agrees on.

Now the consensus is that the slice of cheese should be on top of the patty, and Google has straightened things out in Android 8.1 Oreo, according to Emojipedia.

All's well that ends well, as every cheeseburger emoji out there is now properly following regulations and have their cheese on top of the burger patty, from Apple's take to Samsung's, though the Cupertino brand does have the lettuce on top of the bottom bun, which could come across as kind of weird for some.

On an interesting note, when the whole cheeseburger emoji debate kicked off, Google had some fun with it.

Over at the company's offices, it served cheeseburgers with the slices of cheese on the bun, just like the emoji.

Beer, Cheese Emojis Get Updated Too

Presumably before users start pointing it out, Google preemptively fixed the beer emoji by filling the mugs to the brim instead of just half full.

The problem here was that they were half empty, so how can they be topped with froth?

Next up is the cheese emoji. The icon no longer has a line through the holes on the edge of the wedge, which previously made it look like the gaps were just slapped on unrealistically.

In short, it looks like Google doesn't want another cheeseburger emoji debate on their hands again, though it was one heck of a fun debacle.
