Android Cheeseburger Emoji fixed: Our long national nightmare is over

Android Cheeseburger Emoji fixed: Our long national nightmare is over

Thank goodness, some good news is finally here - Google's taken the time to correct an egregious error. Before today, the Google-designed emoji for the *burger* had its ingredients out of order. It went bun, lettuce, tomato, burger, cheese, bun. That's complete madness of course - the correct order has the cheese ABOVE the burger, to ensure maximum taste and minimum soggy bun.

Apple says this is the most popular emoji in the US

It even beat out the heart, which you’d think comes up more naturally in conversations.

Google accidentally ignited an Internet debate perhaps only rivaled by the great is-it-white dress debacle of 2015. The Internet giant, you see, released a cheeseburger emoji in which the cheese deviated from norm. That is, Apple and Microsoft both put the cheese above the burger patty, as is customary in many places. But someone -- or many someones -- at Google decided to thumb their nose at traditional and put the cheese below the patty.

The folks at Emogi have struck the right chord with Google this week as the two companies collaborate for a simple release.

Google Associate Product Manager Alan Ni said, "We look forward to providing users with more compelling, shareable visual content that ultimately improves their experience on Gboard."

Animoji is Apple’s animated emoji for iPhone X only

Your face will be tracked by the iPhone X, and in turn the emoji you send to your best friend will make your facial expressions. It's a concept Apple calls Animoji, and it'll be coming to iOS 11 very soon. Users will be able to access iOS 11 on September 19th - but the iPhone X will be the first with Animoji in full effect. This is all thanks to the numerous sensors and camera up front of the iPhone X, all there primarily for face authentication, AKA Face ID.
