Google Assistant, Search and Maps is getting a new feature that allows users to order food directly using either of the three services.
When you’re looking up a partner restaurant or a specific cuisine online on Google Search or Maps, you’ll see an ‘order online’ button. You can make your selection with just a few taps and get your food delivered through DoorDash, Postmates, Deliver.com, Slice, and ChowNow. Zuppler and others will also be available soon. You can also check out the pick up times and pay with Google Pay.
Tell the Google Assistant, “Hey Google, order food from [restaurant]”, and the Assistant will guide you through. To reorder from a partner restaurant, tell the Assistant, “Hey Google, reorder food from [restaurant]”. Google Assitant will tell you the past orders and you can select a dish from among them too.
Currently, this feature is available in thousands of cities across USA.

Earlier today, Google also announced that they’ve been working with transit agencies in more than 30 cities worldwide — including London, Singapore, Moscow, Melbourne and New York — for users to be able to buy tickets with Google Pay.
Google Maps will also be updated with a feature that’ll inform users which routes accept Google Pay whenever you’re looking up directions. These features will be rolled out globally in the next few weeks.
“Using Google Pay to ride with your phone is simple. No need to open the app or unlock your device—and it’s the same price as a single ride MetroCard. Plus, it’s more secure. You don’t have to worry about losing your MetroCard, and Google Pay doesn’t share your actual credit or debit card number when you pay,” Google stated.
