You can now use Google Search, Maps, or the Google Assistant to order food through services like DoorDash, Postmates, Delivery.com and others.
We all love takeout once in a while. You don’t have to just be too lazy to cook something, to order a pizza or some Chinese. You could just be planning a cosy solo (or romantic) night in, or you might have invited some friends over to watch the game (or GOT). There are many ways to order: by phone, by app… and now Google.
That’s because the search giant is now bringing the ability to order food for home delivery right from Google Search, Maps, or Assistant. In Search and Maps you need to keep an eye out for the “Order Online” button to order food from services like DoorDash, Postmates, Delivery.com, Slice, and ChowNow. Services like Zuppler and others are coming soon.
The ordering process takes place in just a few taps and you can even check out with Google Pay.
On the Assistant on your device, all you have to do is say, “Hey Google, order food from [restaurant].” With some delivery partners you can also reorder your favourite meal simply by saying, “Hey Google, reorder food from [restaurant].”
The Assistant will bring up your past orders, and all you have to do is select.
