You Have to Try Gboard's New 'Emoji Kitchen' Feature

The feature, or Emoji Kitchen as Google calls its new invention, doesn't extend to all emoji just yet, but it could expand in the future.

From there, you can simply tap on a suggestion and send it as a sticker on any messaging service, including WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Telegram, Snapchat, Gmail, and Messages by Google. Here you can mix up your favourite emoji and create customized stickers. So, all of them those who use Gboard, Emoji Kitchen feature is out to all Android beta users.

As of now, it's still limited to certain emojis - mostly the smiley faces. If you want to use the new feature, you need to choose Emoji and wait for clues.

For example, you could add glasses to the various smiley emoji, add a cowboy hat to a ghost, have a robot cry tears, put a monkey face on a cactus (idk either), make the happy poop emoji express love with a heart and so on.

To be clear, you'll be able to't simply mash up any of the hundreds of emoji with another one - it exclusively works with these Google helps, that are primarily variations on the smileys. Instead, Google designers have created this set of mashups for Gboard, specifically.

The feature is rolling out over time as usual so sit tight if it's not already available within the Gboard app. The idea of emoji mashups has been present for some time, thanks to the fantastic Emoji Mashup Bot Twitter page, which launched a free iMessage sticker pack back in 2019.

Google is making it easier to express yourself with emoji via this Gboard app this week.

Scroll and pick the brand new emoji you prefer to use.
