Google’s Emoji Kitchen Now in Search / Google

Are you tired of using the same old emojis in your messages? Do you want to add a touch of personalization to your conversations? Well, Google has something cooking in its AI Test Kitchen that you'll love – Emoji Kitchen.

What is Google's Emoji Kitchen?

Emoji Kitchen is a special feature offered by Google through its first-party keyboard, Gboard, exclusively available on Android devices. It's like having your own emoji laboratory where you can concoct exciting and personalized emojis.

But here's the exciting part: Google has decided to unshackle Emoji Kitchen from Gboard, making it accessible to users worldwide on various devices, including desktops, Macs, and iPhones.

This change was announced by Jennifer Daniel, who wears the hats of Android Product Design chief and Emoji Kitchen's head chef, on X (formerly known as Twitter).

How Does Emoji Kitchen Work?

Now that you know what Emoji Kitchen is, let's dig deeper into how it works and how you can use it to elevate your emoji game.

To get started with Emoji Kitchen to your Android mobile, you'll need to follow these simple steps:

Download Gboard: If you're an Android user, you'll first need to download and install Gboard from the Google Play Store if you haven't already.

Set Gboard as Default: Once you have Gboard installed, set it as your default keyboard on your Android device.
