1. Download the Starbucks Keyboard App
For iOS, this means heading into the iTunes App Store. For Android, you’ll need to go into the Google Play Store and search.
2. Add the Starbucks Keyboard App
If you’re operating on iOS, go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Keyboards and select “Add New Keyboard.” Then choose “Starbucks” from the third-party keyboards. If you’re an Android user, simply go to the keyboard settings in your phone settings. And, actually, the app will probably bring this up for you during the installation process (it did for me).
3. Enable the Starbucks Keyboard App
Once you’ve added the “Starbucks” keyboard for iOS, select it and toggle on “Allow Full Access.” Android peeps, you should get a prompt asking you to enable Starbucks keyboard as default.
4. Say It With Starbucks
Who needs actual words when you can communicate via cute little emoji of caffeinated beverages, cake pops and coffee raised hands? Since you can use the new emoji with iMessage, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, email and virtually every other messaging platform, there’s no limit to how much Starbucks love you can send. One day, anthropologists and linguists of the future may look back on this day as a pivotal moment in the evolution of language history.
