Google is always working on to find new ways to improve its tools. If you have ever felt that there aren’t much emojis to express how you’re feeling, we have some good news for you. The latest experiment is similar to the earlier test last year that added GIF and sticker suggestion for emoji . This time that company has brought stickers that pit the emojis emotion on another emoji’s shape and is looks remarkable.

Google is calling the feature,”Emoji Kitchen.” This is essentially combining a selection of stickers to create a more specific vibe. Though the concept of emoji mashups has been around for a while, the difference lays in the fact that Google’s emoji mashups have been designed by hand instead of being automatically generated.

“Using Gboard on your Android phone, tap on any smiley emoji and Emoji Kitchen will reveal a number of stickers specially handcrafted by the designers at Google. So when you tap the face with a cowboy hat emoji — YEEHAW now you have monkey cowboy, ghost cowboy, laughing cowboy, kissy cowboy, in love cowboy, pleading cowboy and of course pensive cowboy,” Spotify said in a statement.

Google has said that it is rolling out Emoji Kitchen to all Gboards users. After receiving that you should be able to use it in other apps such as What’s App, Messenger, Telegram, Gmail, and Messenger. “Emoji have been around long enough that people want to play with them like we do with words-mashing them together, turning nouns into verbs, breaking them apart to create entirely new concepts,” the company added.

The emoji starter back features 10 emoji combinations designed by developer Maxence Guegnolle.
