  • Google’s new “Order Online” feature lets you order delivery from delivery services without downloading their apps or visiting their website.
  • It’s a quicker and easier way to get food delivery.
  • Google’s new feature only supports a few delivery services so far, which means only a few restaurants support Google’s new feature, but the list is set to grow “soon,” the company said.

Google rolled out a new feature you can use in Search, Maps, and Google Assistant that lets you order restaurant delivery without downloading a delivery app on your mobile device, or visiting a delivery service from your computer.

Google’s new feature doesn’t have a name, but you should now see a “Order Online” option when you search for a restaurant in Search, Maps, and Google Assistant, at least if that restaurant is part of a delivery service that Google has partnered with.

The new “order online” feature isn’t specifically just Google. It works in partnership with delivery services like DoorDash, Postmates, Delivery.com, Slice, and ChowNow. Google said it’s adding new services like Zuppler “and others” soon.

Google’s “order online” feature basically lets you order delivery from a restaurant without worrying if the restaurant is part of the delivery service you use. It’ll show which delivery service the restaurant works with, as well as the delivery fee that the service might have.

If you don’t have an account with the delivery service being used with Google “order online” feature, it’ll quickly create one with your Google account.

Essentially, Google’s “order online” feature gives you quick and easy access to multiple delivery services.

It’s incredibly simple and fast – here’s a preview of how it works:


First, in your browser, search for a type of food or restaurant you want to get delivery from.

Review your order and payment method. If your Google account doesn’t already have your credit card information stored, you can enter it now. Then tap “Place Order” and your food is on the way. It’s pretty neat!
