You Can Now Order Food Delivery Through Google Search Results On Your Phone

An empty belly and no desire to cook is no problem in an age of instant, Internet-fueled gratification, and now Google is taking another step out of the occasion. Anyone searching for food or restaurants nearby for delivery or takeout using the search engine on their phone will now see an option to “Place an order” next to some results.

It’s not much of a leap, after all, as Google has simply teamed up with a slew of online food delivery services to add the ordering option to its results, depending on where you live.

Searching for a nearby restaurant on your phone will pull up the option to order. Tapping on that will bring hungry folks to a selection of delivery services — depending on what operates in your area and works wwith that restaurant — taking users to that website to complete the order.
The six providers on the U.S. list for services include Seamless, Grubhub, Eat24,, BeyondMenu and, with Google noting that it’s looking to add more eventually.

It’s unclear whether this functionality will also roll out for those using desktop browsers to search Google, however, or if it’ll stick strictly with mobile devices.
