Google boosts Assistant, search and Maps to help you order food

Google boosts Assistant, search and Maps to help you order food

Downloading an additional app to order food online is no more a trouble as Google is allowing its users to order food directly through Search, Maps or Assistant.

If you prefer Google Assistant does it for you, simply say "Hey Google, order food from" followed by the restaurant's name.

How does it work? ChowNow wants to help turn those searches into orders for its local restaurant partners.

An "order online" button will appear in search or Maps when the restaurant you're looking for uses one of those services. This began with searching and booking airline flights, then quickly expanded to integrating with transportation services such as Uber and Lyft, and now food ordering and delivery. You will also be given an opportunity to look at menus without leaving the interface and even an option to pay for the order using Google Pay - the app that offers the functionality of both Android Pay and Google Wallet.

Pochettino: No decision on Spurs future until after Champions League final
The 13-time European champions have not received Pochettino's words well and have called out the Tottenham manager's comments in an official statement.


You can see all the food options and prices up front. You are supposed to say, "Hey Google, reorder food from [name of the restaurant]" and it will display a comprehensive list of past orders from the same restaurant to ease the process.

It's also working on including more companies in the future, such as Zuppler. That means you can pick your go-to eats and set up the delivery in seconds with minimal fuss.

This is a really great addition to Google's services, especially Assistant, considering how popular food delivery has been getting recently. Google yesterday announced that they are making the process of ordering food even easier. Yes, you read it right.
