Beginning from today, you can now order food through Google Assistant, Google Maps and Google Search. Working in partnership with delivery companies like ChowNow, Delivery.com, DoorDash and Postmates, Google grants you the access to order food from these companies without having to visit their website or download their app.
Here’s what to do
Clicking on your Google Search or Google Map button, the initiative works via new menu titled “Order Online”. This appears once you search for a restaurant nearby. Once the “Order Online” button is clicked, Google equally gives users the accessibility of choosing between delivery and pickup and also what platform would you want your meal ordered from. Right after, if the restaurant supports your order; all ordering inputs are all processed through Google pay and Google’s interface.
Similarly, the Google assistant implementation on Android and iOS phones works almost the same way. You begin the process by asking Google to order food for you from a restaurant, before making your food choice and delivery service.
With the new initiative currently supporting five delivery services, Google has revealed it will be adding support for Zuppler and others shortly. Nevertheless, major delivery services that includes, Deliveroo, Uber Eats, and Grubhub are missing on Google’s delivery companies’ roster. Earlier, the company had however introduced a Google Duplex, an automated voice assistant that calls a restaurant on your behalf as well as make reservations, this has recorded limited success.
