You can now order and pay for your Starbucks before you get to the store
Stopping into your local Starbucks to get your early morning caffeine fix can be both rewarding and stressful. On one hand, you leave the store with a nice, warm beverage that will help you start your day. On the other hand, though, waiting in line can get pretty annoying, especially when you’re on your way to work or in a time crunch. To help customers out with that problem, Starbucks today announced a new feature for its Android application that will make ordering and picking up drinks much more convenient. Mobile Order & Pay, a feature that launched in select markets back in 2014, is now available nationwide on both Android and iOS.
This new feature lets you choose a participating location from a map view, browse, select and even customize food and drink items. The application will then estimate the timeframe the order will be ready, and you can even pay for your order from within the app. When you arrive at your Starbucks location of choice, your menu items will be ready and waiting for you at the bar.
Mobile Order & Pay will only work at company-owned Starbucks locations. Starbucks plans to roll this feature out to select locations in the U.K. and Canada sometime in October, as well. The update is now live in the Play Store, so head to the link below to get started.
