San Francisco, Nov 4: After an intense debate on the social media over the placement of cheese in Android’s and Apple’s burger emojis — which was joined by India-born Google CEO Sundar Pichai — the tech giant has finally served “Android burgers” to its employees.

At its Seattle office, the workers were served “Android burgers” during Friday’s lunch, ending the debate that Android burger emoji is the winner when it comes to placing the cheese.

“The key difference between this burger and any other is that the slice of cheese is placed beneath the patty and atop the lower bun. It looks exactly like Android’s burger emoji, which sparked heated controversy earlier this week over the correct ingredient order of America’s beloved staple,” The Verge reported on Saturday.

The whole thing started when Thomas Baekdal, a writer and media analyst, tweeted early this week on the placement of cheese in Android and Apple burger emojis.

“I think we need to have a discussion about how Google’s burger emoji is placing the cheese underneath the burger, while Apple puts it on top,” Baekdal tweeted.

Reacting to this, Pichai tweeted, promising to “drop everything” and address the issue if people on the platform agree on what the correct placement of ingredient should be.

With serving “Android burgers,” it appears the kitchen department at Google has heard Pichai loud and clear.

The hamburger emoji, also known as the cheeseburger, was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015, according to Emojipedia — an emoji reference website. (IANS)

Built on the Unified Payments Interface (UPI), the “Tez” app will bring bill payments for over 80 billers for private and public utility service providers across the country.

“We are adding a specially-designed bill pay experience in ‘Tez’ which will enable users to make a wide range of bill payments, including electricity, water, gas, DTH and insurance from the app,” said Diana Layfield, Vice President, Payments and Commerce, Next Billion Users at Google.

The new bill pay feature would include major utilities like Reliance Energy, BSES and Dish TV and would cover all states and major metros.

Built to support “Bharat BillPay” system, “Tez” would send users a notification when their bill arrives and users would be able to check whether they have paid a bill by simply tapping the biller’s name on their “Tez” home screen.

Users would also be able to view all past payments grouped by bill, as well as manage bills from multiple accounts.

Once users have located their biller, they need to enter the number associated with their account to link it to the app and give it an easy name to remember.

After users have linked their account, for most utility bills, the app would automatically fetch any available bills. Users need to just tap on “New Payment” and then “Pay your bills”. IANS
