Most of us think of Starbucks as that place you go to whenever you feel the need to pay inflated prices for a cup of the black stuff with your name written on the side of the cup. However, any regular Starbucks visitor will know that the American multinational coffeehouse has transcended beyond purely coffee by diversifying its product range. The company has also shown a willingness to invest in the digital-scape with its consumer-facing Starbucks mobile app that allows customers to pay via a digital wallet, find local outlets, and get instant offers and promises based on locations. Now, that investment in digital appears to be continuing with the launch of the official Starbucks Keyboard.

Yes, you heard us right, Starbucks has just released an official keyboard app for iOS and Android which is essentially a collection of company’s product themed emoji characters and stickers for use in conversations across a wide variety of messaging apps.

That includes branded cups, storefronts, Starbucks logos, and even a purple unicorn looking absolutely thrilled enjoying a tasty beverage from the extremely well-known coffee company. If this is the exact app you’ve been looking for to express just how much you love Starbucks to all of your friends and family, then get on over and download it right now.

The company has already stated that the app will be updated semi-regularly with emoji versions of actual drinks from the Starbucks menu over the course of the year, meaning that whatever your coffee or blended drink of choice happens to be, you should be able to share it through iMessage, Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, or whatever other messenger platform you use to wax lyrical about your beverage choices.

The app itself is available as a free-of-charge download from the relevant device specific application store, but make sure you keep it installed on that device as it’s going to be continually refreshed throughout the year.
