It must be admitted that Apple has a clear advantage when it comes to emoji. Android users know that using emoji outside WhatsApp is a pain because Google’s or SwiftKey’s emojis are always weak compared to Apple’s. However, Google is preparing to launch a feature that could change this situation.
Feature where you can combine two emojis in Google Search to get a new emoji
You can now create your own emoji combinations directly in Google Search. The company has launched its Emoji Kitchen feature on the web, which lets you mix existing emojis to create different combinations, like an angry pumpkin or a panda wearing a cowboy hat.
To start using the tool, all you have to do is type “Emoji Kitchen” into Google Search and click on the “Start cooking” command. From here, you can choose from dozens of different emojis to combine or play with the randomizer.
Once you’re done trying it out, you can click on the resulting emoji to copy it to your device’s clipboard so you can paste it as a sticker into a message or document.
The emoji generator also works on mobile browsers and the Google app; This means iPhone users can finally access this feature and paste their creations into iMessage.
Google had previously made Emoji Kitchen available to Android users only through the Gboard app. While the web version of Emoji Kitchen doesn’t have as many combinations compared to Gboard, it’s still nice to see the blending tool available on more device types.
