Alexa will now take your Starbucks order


Owners of Amazon Echo and other Alexa-enabled devices can now use the Starbucks Reorder skill to order coffee, the company announced today.

To make orders, customers must create a Starbucks Mobile Order & Pay account so orders are preset and paid for before entering a local Starbucks location. Select users of the Starbucks iOS app may also use their voice to make orders.

To use the Starbucks Reorder skill, visit the Alexa Skills Marketplace or say “Alexa, enable the Starbucks Reorder skill.” Once the skill and the Mobile Order and Pay account are connected, all you have to do is say “Alexa, tell Starbucks to start my usual order.”

This is Starbuck’s second recent venture into conversational commerce, following the launch of the My Starbucks barista chatbot for the Starbucks app last month.

Starbucks was in the news earlier today when CEO Howard Schultz pledged to hire 10,000 refugees following executive orders by President Donald Trump to ban the citizens of seven predominantly Muslim countries in the Middle East and Africa.

Samsung’s phone-as-desktop concept now runs Linux

Samsung's DeX is a clever way to turn your phone into a desktop computer. However, there's one overriding problem: you probably don't have a good reason to use it instead of a PC. And Samsung is trying to fix that. It's unveiling Linux on Galaxy, an app-based offering that (surprise) lets you run Linux distributions on your phone. Ostensibly, it's aimed at developers who want to bring their work environment with them wherever they go. You could dock at a remote office knowing that your setup will be the same as usual.

It's not quite the same as your typical Ubuntu or Debian install. Linux on Galaxy launches through an app, and it's using the same kernel as Android itself in order to maintain performance. And it almost goes without saying that you'll really want a DeX setup, since most Linux apps are expecting a large screen, mouse and keyboard.

As it stands, you'll have to be patient. Linux on Galaxy isn't available right now -- you can sign up for alerts, but it's not ready for public consumption. Even so, this is good evidence that Samsung thinks of DeX as considerably more than a novelty feature. It may be a long, long while (if ever) before many people are using their phones as desktops, but Samsung is willing to gradually build up its ecosystem and eventually give you an incentive to take a second look.
