Starbucks has an emoji keyboard, so send a Frappuccino with that smiley face

...

Starbucks has been at the forefront of high street technology innovation for a while, but its latest app release may turn out to be its most popular. It’s a keyboard app, which features Starbucks-themed emojis. That’s right, forget little emoji poo, or that face that may or may not be a scream, now you can say it with a frosty Frappuccino.

The app is available for iOS and for Android, and includes two pages of Starbucks related emoji, and a custom keyboard option presented in Starbucks colors and font. The emojis include images of all your favourite Starbucks drinks — all in takeaway cups though, no mugs here — along with the logo, a storefront, and various emoji folk holding Starbucks drinks.

Install the app on iOS and you’ll need to add it to the active keyboard list under settings, then grant it full access to use throughout the phone. Then it’s activated using the globe key on the standard keyboard’s bottom line. It operates with iMessage, on Facebook, in WhatsApp, and elsewhere. Like most other third-party keyboard apps, when you select an emoji it doesn’t simply appear in the text, but is copied to the clipboard ready for pasting.

On Android it’s a similar mission. After installation, activate it under Language & Input in Settings, then make sure it’s selected as the standard keyboard. From here, it sends the emoji as images through various apps, rather than placing them inside messages. In our quick tests, the app is more stable and usable on iOS. However, neither system is ideal, but if you want to send someone a joyous Starbucks emoji, you’ll have to jump through a few hoops.

Starbucks promises it will continue adding content to the app throughout the year, so expect more coffee-related emojis very soon.
