The company launches a food ordering platform that transfers nearly all its activities to the Google domain. This has been promised since I / O 2018 and the tests of recent months, but the announcement of the company on its The keyword blog indicates that it is spreading.
Google Search and Maps users' listings will display a large button labeled "Order Online", "Order Pickup" or "Order Delivery" depending on the restaurant. Customers will be redirected through Google's order interface (though this may look a bit different when integrating DoorDash) and have the opportunity to look around for Google Pay. The interface is currently active with restaurants supporting ChowNow, Delivery.com, DoorDash, Postmates and Slice. Links to Zuppler and other delivery services will be produced shortly.
Google Assistant users can simply enter or say "Order Food at [restaurant]" and are guided through the app through the process. Customers can also ask Assistant to "order food from [restaurant]" and view their order history to select their favorite dish.
We tested some DoorDash-compatible restaurants and found that only a few use the Google interface. Expect this feature to spread quickly.
