The Starbucks app for Windows 10 Mobile has been retired, dropping it from the Microsoft Store a little more than a year after its arrival. The official app is no longer available for download, and people with the app installed are being greeted with a message directing them to use Starbucks' website.
If you have the Starbucks app on your phone, you'll be logged out and unable to sign in the next time you open it. When trying to sign in, you'll be greeted with the following message instead:
To continue using the Starbucks app on Windows, please go to app.starbucks.com in the US, starbucks.ca in Canada, and starbucks.co.uk in the UK.
When it launched in August of 2016, the official Starbucks app for Windows 10 Mobile was only available in the U.S., Canada, and the UK. It never expanded from there, but people in those regions could use the app to pay at Starbucks stores, manage their account, redeem rewards, and find nearby stores.
Starbucks is another in a long line of big names leaving the platform, but it's not surprising. With Windows 10 Mobile essentially dead at this point, a number of recognizable apps have opted to drop support for the platform. Aside from Starbucks, Barclays bank announced it would soon drop support. That's in addition to others like Flipboard, Wells Fargo, and Evernote, just to name a few. But while Windows 10 Mobile may be on the way out, we could potentially see Microsoft launch back into the mobile space in a unique way in the future.
