Google Brings Emoji Mashup Stickers to Gboard on Android


Google has rolled out an  Emoji Kitchen to all Gboard users on Android. The feature allows you to express your emotions through emoji from crying and many more.

There are already hundreds of emoji available to cover every emotion from yawning to being a straight-up drunk weirdo.

Google’s emoji kitchen offers a selection of stickers. They combine two existing emoji to create one with a much more specific vibe.

The emoji kitchen is currently available on the Gboard Beta program. Once you get the feature, you should be able to use it in apps. They include WhatsApp, Messenger, Telegram, Snapchat, Gmail, and Messages by Google.

The concept of emoji mashups was first introduced on twitter with the  Emoji Mashup Bot which releases a free iMessage sticker pack. Later the downloads were available on Android for WhatsApp, Telegram, and Gboard.

However, the current Google’s emoji mashup is a little bit different from the mashup bot. Instead, Google designers have created this set of mashups for Gboard specifically rather having them automatically generated by a bot. Emoji kitchen only works with  Google supports, which are mainly variations on the smileys.

Noting from Google, ” you can tap on any smiley emoji, and then Gboard will suggest a suitable set of mashups based on it”

If you’ve ever felt like there just weren’t enough emoji options to express how you’re feeling, the emoji kitchen has your back.

Google has previously made an announcement that it will be highlighting 62 new emoji that would be coming to Android 11. It was set to be launched towards the end of 2019.

Google and Microsoft in the same period partnered to sponsor a  transgender flag emoji with final candidates for Emoji 13.0 including a polar bear, bubble tea, pickup truck, fondue, teapot, and piñata.

The company also proposed all gender variants for “person in the veil” and “person in a tuxedo,”. As well have a “person feeding baby with a bottle. for emoji 13.0
