Emojis are a very efficient way to express your feeling without writing a single word. But there are times when we don’t find perfect emojis to express your emotions. To solve this problem, Google has launched a new feature to the Gboard keyboard app – Emoji Kitchen. Emoji Kitchen now gives you the option of picking your favorite emoji and mix them into customized stickers, helping you express those nuanced thoughts and feelings.
“We affectionately refer to this feature as Emoji Kitchen, because 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,” Google said in a blog.
Google said that the entire process is very easy and it has illustrated this with an example. “So when you tap the face with a cowboy hat emoji —YEEHAW now you have monkey cowboy, ghost cowboy, laughing cowboy, kissy cowboy, in love cowboy, pleading cowboy and of course … pensive cowboy,”
The search engine giant said that with Emoji Kitchen, your phone’s keyboard will be an even richer canvas for expression. “Emoji have been around long enough that people want to play with them like we do with words—mashing them together, turning nouns into verbs, breaking them apart to create entirely new concepts,” Google said.
Emoji Kitchen has been rolled out to Gboard users only on Android as of now. 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.
