Starbucks’ App New Feature – Voice Ordering

Yep, you’re now able to order a latte through the Starbucks app by voice. It’s on iPhone and Amazon’s Alexa device only so far. Well, it’s in testing so only a very limited number of customers are able to activate the feature, but it will be rolling out in the coming weeks.

It will let you, rather than scrolling through options and selecting everything you want, to literally speak your order, the same as you would to a barista, and the app will handle the rest. That’s on the iPhone. The Alexa device is more limited, in that you simply say “Alexa, order my Starbucks,” and it’ll place your usual, pre-set order.

You can literally order and pay for your drink or food from Starbucks without having to interact with a person at all. Now all they need is a little vending machine at their locations and you won’t even have to go in the store. Are you interested in voice-ordering? Here’s a quick demo below.
