We never expected that the indignation for the design of a hamburger emoji would bubble up to the point where the CEO of Google had to intervene personally, but such is the 2017. And today, our long global nightmare of cheese with bun comes to its end with the public release of Android Oreo 8.1, which fixes the unpleasant glyph.
Android 8.1 also adds a new beer emoji, which no longer leaves foam foam inexplicably staying on top of the cup after it has dropped half of the beer.  Here is the aspect of the offensive emoji in 8.0:
Would you go to a place like this? No.
These are the new characters greatly improved in 8.1:
Google's new hamburger emoji now follows Microsoft's approach to pie, cheese, tomato and lettuce. This is much more acceptable, although I personally applaud LG for holding the tomato.
The next time you use your Pixel 2 XL to suggest meeting friends hamburgers and drinks, think about what it took to get to this point. And devote a thought to the Samsung owners of your group, who will still have to deal with an even more ridiculous character who puts lettuce between the cheese and the hamburger.
Android Oreo 8.1 will be launched today (Tuesday) depending on where it is in the world, and joins the new lightweight "Go" edition that manufacturers can choose to install on low-specification phones.
In addition to emergency emoji fixes, 8.1 enables support for the Visual Core image processing chip found in the new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, allowing third-party developers to access the impressive HDR + function of the camera. The update will be available for all Pixel phones, as well as for the Pixel C tablet, the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P.
