Google has incorporated food ordering features into its mobile apps, allowing iOS and Android users to order food directly from a range of companies without having to install an additional app or visit a website.

google apps food ordering
The functionality is available across U.S. cities in Google Search, Google Maps, and Google Assistant apps, and works through partnerships with existing delivery companies including DoorDash, Postmates, Delivery, Slice, and ChowNow.

In Google Search and Google Maps, there's a new "Order Online" button that appears when users search for a supported restaurant. Pressing the button lets you choose between pickup and delivery, and then select available food from the menu.

The feature works similarly in Google Assistant, which also supports reordering past selections. Users ask Google to order food from a specific restaurant, then they can choose a delivery service before selecting and paying for their order, all through the Google interface.

In addition to the partnerships mentioned above, Google plans to add support for Suppler and others in the future. As The Verge notes, major delivery services like Uber Eats, Deliveroo, Grubhub, and Just Eat are currently not supported.

I’m in the same boat. Unfortunately I’ve been waiting for way to long to trust that Apple will get their **** together in regards to Siri.

I wouldn't hold your breath, Siri is to far behind the competition.

This is an interesting step for Google. Down the road, when they've got the driverless vehicles figured out (Waymo) and made them delivery vehicles they can just cut out these delivery companies without the users even knowing - rather Amazonian in process.

I had Google home minis in every room and had to return them because they would reply in the wrong room (and the way my apartment is set up there's no way the one in my mom's room heard me from my bedroom).

I switched to echo dots and one echo and besides the occasional outage where Alexa turns into an idiot I'm happier with Alexa.
