Apparently, Google made good on its promise to fix its very bad hamburger emoji, in the wake of an online debacle last month. This change applies to the forthcoming Android 8.1 release.

Emojipedia broke the news update on Twitter, after the 44-year-old tech tycoon had delivered his promise.

Google was dragged for sticking the cheese underneath the burger, where it couldn't properly melt, but Apple's lettuce placement also came under fire, because honestly, who wants to bite into warm, juicy lettuce?

Bungie will be uploading a new podcast shortly featuring Luke Smith and Mark Noseworthy addressing the condition of the game. This change was not clarified and is one of many issues that is creating trust issues between fans and Bungie.

Samsung takes a page from Google's misguided playbook, placing the cheese on top of the lettuce and sending chills down the spine. 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.

According to "Emojipedia" the new burger design for Android puts the cheese in the correct place, on top of the burger patty. The beer emoji has also undergone a slight makeover, as the mugs are now full instead of the previous partially-empty mugs. As per the report, a new and improved cheeseburger emoji will have the cheese placed atop the patty, as opposed to underneath it.

Besides, Google has also refreshed a few more emojis.

Australian Senate passes marriage equality bill
Dean Smith shared the story of why he'd chose to author the marriage equality bill. "It's time for our MPs to get this done". Smith, who is gay, said his vote would have been a "No" three years ago. "Tori lost his life in the Lindt café siege".

The whole revelation was eye-opening, and after seeing Google take the feedback to heart and rid its software of the culinary abomination, concerned emoji users breathed a virtual sigh of relief. Another emoji that has been fixed is of the cheese, which now has refined edges on the holes and readjusted colour tone.

This cheeseburger conspiracy sparked quite an intense and extensive debate on social media over where the cheese should be placed in the Cheeseburger Emoji, both for Apple and Android's emojis in the recent updates. In Android 8.0, the mug had a weird space between the beer and the froth, but Android 8.1 fixes that by bringing the beer all the way to the top.
