Now you can order takeout food directly via Google

The company is now adding food delivery to the lineup of things you can do directly in Maps and Search without switching to a separate app. Depending on the service, you can even complete your purchase using Google Pay, which would result in a completely seamless transaction.

All you need to do is to keep an eye out for the "Order Online" button in Search and Maps, select the restaurant and the menu items you're after and pay through Google Pay and voila, your food will be on its way as soon as possible.

Google Assistant users can just type in or say "order food from [restaurant]" and be guided through the process from within the app. Customers can also ask Assistant to "reorder food from [restaurant]", and pull up their order history to select their favorite meal. For participating restaurants, you will be able to make food selections with just a few taps, view delivery or pickup times, and check out directly with Google Pay.

However, it remains unclear whether or not the feature would work on Google Assistant-enabled smart speakers or smart displays. The feature will include DoorDash, Postmates, Delivery.com, Slice, and ChowNow to start, with more services being added in the future. At the moment, the service is limited to cities in the U.S., and ordering food with Google Assistant is a mobile-only experience. The company has also said nothing about when, or if, the new ordering options will spread to other parts of the world.
