Google Maps is the American tech giant’s navigation software that is available on Android and iOS hardware in addition to desktops.

The client is regularly updated by Google, meaning new and exciting features are consistently introduced.

The latest of which allows fans to order food from directly within the software, eliminating the need to open another app.

Unfortunately, the feature is only available in the US at the moment – it allows customers to order food from services such as DoorDash, Postmates, Delivery.com, Slice, and ChowNow.

Google has also insisted other providers such as Zuppler and more are “coming soon” to the new tool.

Essentially, when a user clicks on a participating restaurant, they are now able to press an “order online” button to confirm a food delivery within Google Maps itself.

Menus for restaurants are shown in full and the user is able to conclude a transaction using Google Pay.

Discussing the new feature, Google said: “Now you can use Google Search, Maps or the Assistant to order food from services like DoorDash, Postmates, Delivery.com, Slice, and ChowNow, with Zuppler and others coming soon.

“Look out for the ‘Order Online’ button in Search and Maps when you search for a restaurant or type of cuisine.

“For participating restaurants, you can make your selections with just a few taps, view delivery or pickup times, and check out with Google Pay.”

It is worth noting Google also said similar functionality can be accessed by using Search and its Assistant.

At the moment the American tech giant has insisted the functionality should be present in “thousands of cities across the US”.

It was not disclosed whether the functionality will arrive in other territories, such as the UK.

While certainly not a confirmation, Google has previously rolled out myriad features for Maps in the US first before debuting them in other territories.

That means it is not impossible the new tool discussed above could arrive for other regions down the line.
