Google’s New Emoji Kitchen Has Emoji Mashups

Emoji are an essential aspect of communication on the internet, so much so that without the right kind of emoji it would be quite unlikely that you would be able to get your message across in any significant way all in all. In spite of the fact that there are a lot of different emoji out there that you can use on a regular basis, the fact of the matter is that sometimes you need to mix emoji up in order to get a response.

This can be seen in the popular Twitter account Emoji Mashup Bot, which is a bot driven account that mixes two or more emoji together and it has proved to be quite popular. Google seems to be taking a leaf out of this Twitter account’s book by creating a new feature called the Emoji Kitchen, and the basic way in which this will work is that it will create new kinds of emoji that will be created from two or more preexisting emoji.

Now, one thing that needs to be kept in mind is that these emoji mashups are not going to be emoji themselves but stickers. This solves a common problem associated with emoji that made them difficult to mix together, and at the same time creates a feature that can be used in pretty much any modern messaging app since the vast majority of them tend to support stickers and the like.
"You can explore new “recipes” of expressions using your favorite emoji as ingredients. Using Gboard on your Android phone, tap on any smiley emoji and Emoji Kitchen will reveal a number of stickers specially handcrafted by the designers at Google.", announced Jennifer Daniel, Creative Director, Emoji, in a blog post on Google. Adding further, "Emoji Kitchen is rolling out to all Gboard users on Android, starting today. If you want to start cooking now, join the Gboard Beta program and try it out on your favorite communication apps, including Gmail, Messages by Google, Messenger, Snapchat, Telegram, WhatsApp, and more."
This is going to change the way we communicate with each other online, and it could also prove to be a game changer in the sense that other companies and platforms are going to be following suit in order to give users something new and exciting which is always the kind of thing that can prove to be useful when you are working in a highly saturated marketplace.
