Google decided to add in the original Gboard keyboard for Android built-in editor, emoticons called Emoji kitchen (cuisine Emoji). He does not combine them with each other so as to obtain two consecutive emojis, and allows you to literally take the distinctive features of the different Emoji and cross them, essentially creating a completely new smile. The result may be the turd in the hat, a cactus from a monkey or a robot with a plaintive expression. In short, be creative as you like and do not adapt to the already available options yourself, and adjust them personally for yourself.
How to change Emoji
Few people know that all Emoji require registration in Unicode, as it turned out, this restriction can be circumvented. Despite the fact that the result of crossing we get a completely new types of emojis, designers always reserve the external incarnation, which, it would seem that the same smile in the performance of the two companies like Apple and Google may be very different. In the process of crossing through Google Emoji Kitchen just a little change in design style of each Emoji, leaving the underlying essence is the same. Therefore, the cactus remains a cactus, a robot of the robot, and the turd, sadly, a piece of shit.

That is to take and to put the shit robot head has not come out as well as replaced by Emoji family-parents or children of the cacti.
How to create your own Emoji
It turns out that Emoji Kitchen – it’s not real cooking, where you can be as creative as you want, but something like semi-finished product. Here you are not allowed to act independently, offering to choose only from the list of available options. Designers search giant, of course, tried to work out the maximum possible customization methods emojis, but to do something that truly suits you do not give, and, of course, compatible with Emoji Kitchen while a very limited number of smileys.

Perhaps someone will say that this innovation does not make sense because it does not carry practical benefits. But, as practice shows, many users are looking forward to the new smileys, but because the opportunity to create their own – albeit with a number of conventions and restrictions – would definitely appreciate at least some of them. Well, those to whom this idea seems not worth a damn, can she just not use it. And that’s all.
