Google implemented a new feature allowing users to order food directly from search results, facilitating the process of ordering food online.
The tech giant announced the news in a Google+ post:
“Whether you’re craving deep dish pizza or pad thai, starting today you can order food from some of your favorite restaurants directly from Google search results,”
When searching for a nearby restaurant on Google users can expect to see an option to “Place an order” in the search results.
“Just tap that, choose the delivery service and you’ll be taken to their website to complete the order.”
How the new feature works.
The feature is only available in the US for now.
Deliveries are currently handled by six food on-demand providers – Seamless, Grubhub, Eat24, Delivery.com, BeyondMenu, and MyPizza.com. This means that the feature only works with restaurants that use at least one of these services.
Google says it plans to add more options in the future.
