Starbucks today updated its iOS app to introduce a new feature that allows Starbucks customers to send digital gift cards to friends and family members using the Messages app. 

To send a digital Starbucks gift card, the Starbucks Gifts app will need to be installed from the Messages 
App Store. From there, the app offers an interface with several different gift card graphic options and $5, $10, and $25 denominations.

Sending a gift card requires Apple Pay, which is used to pay for the gift card directly in the Messages app, charging the amount to an Apple Pay credit or debit card. Giftees can then use the digital gift card like any other digital gift card sent via email.

Along with the new Starbucks Gifts feature, today's update also introduces new push notifications, a store location filter for the Nitro cold brew, and a new design and interface for the mobile ordering feature.
