Emojis have become an important element of conversations. With so much of variety being offered while texting, it only adds to your chatting. We are not quite sure about how many of you know about the flaws in certain emojis, especially for Android users. Google's CEO Sundar Pichai even apologised for the design bugs and has now fixed them. The beer emoji has been changed or rather corrected.
Careful observant had pointed out the design error in the emoticon resembling a cheeseburger and also the beer. The beer emoji for Apple was a full glass filled with beer and some foam rising above. The beer emoji for Android however, saw a half-filled glass and some foam at the top, away from the beer spilling at the sides, an error too obvious. It now stands corrected with the full glass and foam over it. This error was noticed in October and was corrected by the month of December. Google CEO Pichai had addressed it even recently. "Towards the end of last year it came to my attention that we had a major bug in one of our core products. It turns out, we got the cheese wrong in our burger emoji," he said in his keynote speech at the conference on May 8.

I think we need to have a discussion about how Google's burger emoji is placing the cheese underneath the burger, while Apple puts it on top pic.twitter.com/PgXmCkY3Yc
