Starbucks Launches Its Own Emoji Keyboard

Starbucks has launched its own set of emoji characters. The coffeemaker’s Keyboard for mobile features icons for Starbucks beverages, and people holding Starbucks beverages, among other characters. There is also a purple unicorn sipface emoji, because, lets face it, sometimes we just have to say it with a purple unicorn sipping coffee.

The Starbucks emojis can be used with Facebook, WhatsApp, and email as well, and the company says it will refresh the icons throughout the year. The Starbucks app is released in the app stores by Snaps Media, and is available as a free app on the Apple App store and Google Play.
