Over the last couple of years, Starbucks has been finding new ways to make it easier for customers to order their drinks with its mobile phone add. Now with Amazon’s Alexa, you can place an order before you even leave the house.
Amazon has added a new skill to Alexa via its Echo device: Starbucks Reorder. Once a user links their Starbucks account to their Amazon account, the Skill allows you to place an order for your Usual. It will also allow you to query Alexa for your Starbucks Card balance.
The skill is somewhat limited at the moment: you can only order a designated Usual drink by instructing Alexa to “tell Starbucks to start my usual order". Some users noted that they would like to see some additional features, such as the ability to place an order so that it's ready at a certain time, or to select a new location. The development team has already announced that more updates will be coming and will expand its capabilities. So now we just has to wait for them!
