Remember last month’s brouhaha about the cheeseburger emoji for Android 8.0, when Google’s designers had the audacity to put the cheese slice under the beef patty? Right away, Google CEO Sundar Pichai was in full damage control mode; Google’s restaurant in Mountain View even temporarily adapted its burger recipe, serving the unorthodox version of the controversial burger. Fast-forward one month, and Android’s version 8.1 has rectified the burger bug. Its designers also used the opportunity to tweak their beer stein emoji.
