You Can Now Order Takeout Straight From Google Search Results
Google announced on the Google+ blog today that you can now order food directly from Google search results if the restaurant is already linked to GrubHub, Seamless, Delivery.com, Eat24, BeyondMenu, or MyPizza.com. Between grocery delivery and the endless parade of new takeout services, it’s becoming easier and easier to be a lazy eater. Pretty soon we’ll only have to push a button to get pizza (oh wait, that already exists…).
“Whether you’re craving deep dish pizza or pad Thai, starting today you can order food from some of your favorite restaurants directly from Google search results,” the Google blog post read.
As of now, when you search for menus on Google, you’ll see an option to place an order — just tap the button and you’re done. Initially, Google’s new feature will only be compatible if a restaurant uses one of the aforementioned six delivery services, but Google is looking to add more restaurants soon.
We can’t help but wonder if this will negatively affect Seamless and GrubHub’s site traffic, but it certainly makes things easier for the average consumer.
