GIF master Giphy is releasing a new app and it is designed exclusively for animated stickers. The latest offering is simply called Giphy Stickers and it basically does what its name implies. Interestingly, the Giphy Stickers app is not exactly new -- when Giphy had completed its acquisition of Imoji (an Android, iOS, and iMessage app), it proceeded to animating every sticker contained in its catalog, plus incorporated some additional new options, and for good measure, made upgrades to the in-app creation feature so that users can generate their own animated stickers.

Starbucks has introduced a new feature called My Starbucks barista in its mobile app, and basically it is a voice operated digital assistant that lets consumers order and even pay for the food and drinks they buy by way of verbal requests.

On top of that, the US based coffee giant also took the opportunity to debut a new skill for the Amazon’s Alexa platform.
