Back in March, we informed you that the Starbucks app for Windows 10 PC and Mobile was in the works. Now, their release is finally confirmed to be the end of this month.

This is a good piece of news since this app will simplify the life of all the Windows 10 fans who are also Starbucks fans. The app was long requested by users whose payment options at Starbucks were limited by the unavailability of a Windows 10 Starbucks app. Users were not able to use the mobile payment system at Starbucks unless they owned a Microsoft Band, or if they used a third party tool such as Latte Locator.

The problem with such apps is that they only provide information about the nearest Starbucks location and don’t support any payment system.

On March 23, Starbucks President Kevin Johnson said that his team was “within 30 to 45 days of releasing a Windows Phone app.” That deadline was ultimately missed since the app would have already been launched. Taking into account this piece of information, we think it’s safe to say that the Windows 10 Starbucks app will most likely be released next week, or in two weeks time, in the worst case scenario.

The person who confirmed the June launch is Adam Brotman, the company’s Global Chief Digital Officer, but he refrained from revealing any details, simply confirming just that the launch would take place in June.

Users also asked him whether the app would work internationally but they received no answer. Even if the Windows 10 Starbucks app will work only in the US, it is only a matter of time until the app will work worldwide.
