Already tired of the hundreds of emoticons available on your smartphone? Google has the solution. The search engine has recently made available to all Internet users its tool "Emoji Kitchen", as spotted by BFMTV this Thursday.

This tool has existed since 2020 but was until now reserved for users of the Gboard application. It is now accessible to anyone who types "Emoji Kitchen" into Google: the search brings up a box that offers you to put yourself "in the kitchen". In total, 20,000 combinations would be possible according to Emojipedia, quoted by Numerama.

Sometimes bizarre results

The tool allows you to merge existing emoticons to create a new one. Hundreds of emojis are available, although some can't be merged together. The results are in any case funny, cute, sometimes strange or embarrassing. On social networks, Internet users are having a blast, with a predominance for animals and – obviously – the crotte emoji.

The emojis you can create in #EmojiKitchen are quite entertaining LOL
Respect to those designers who spent all these hours to redesign and offer us variety in something we take for granted yet use daily.

I wish there are available for keyboards too sometime. pic.twitter.com/8cVdhDsUiZ

The emoji thus created can be saved as an image but cannot be shared as a simple emoji, notes BFMTV. The list of emoticons integrated into smartphone keyboards is indeed very officially managed by the Unicode consortium. A limit that obviously does not hinder the attraction of Internet users for the tool.
