Emoji Kitchen is the name given to Gboard’s crazy emoji fusion. This is a function that has been with us for a few years now, but little by little it is adding more combinations. It recently brought back dropmojis and the latest update celebrates Chinese New Year with a slew of tiger emoji combinations.

2022 will be the Year of the Tiger according to the Chinese calendar, and it will begin exactly tomorrow. In addition to being able to celebrate it on your mobile with a 3D tiger in augmented reality, with Gboard you can create fusions of tiger emojis with all kinds of emotions and that you can send to almost any messaging application, such as WhatsApp.

All kinds of tigers on your Gboard

Officially, there are two tiger emojis. The tiger face emoji has been with us since 2010 and in 2015 it was joined by the full body tiger. If you fail, with Gboard’s Emoji Kitchen you can now create endless new combinations.

All you have to do is use one emoji of a tiger and another in Gboard

The operation is always the same. In any messaging app that accepts sending photos or stickers (such as WhatsApp, Telegram, etc.), open the Gboard emoji picker in a chat conversation.

Then tap the tiger emoji and Emoji Kitchen suggestions will start appearing above the search bar. Then tap on the second emoji you want to merge, and if Gboard has a suggestion for that merge, you’ll see it at the top.

The tiger emoji pairs perfectly with the vast majority of facial expressions, some animals, some objects, and even another tiger, making a cute family postcard. If you like one of Emoji Kitchen’s creations, you can send it to chat by tapping on it.

The most normal thing is that it is sent as a sticker, although in some applications that do not support this type of multimedia they will be sent as images. This has the advantage that they will be visible to the other person even if they are not using Gboard or Android.
