Google has made ordering pizza, pad thai and roast chicken even easier in their favorite restaurants.

Search giant announced Thursday that apps like Google Maps, Google Search, and Google Assistant have been updated. You do not need to download as many third-party apps as you can to order groceries conveniently online.

"When I was pregnant with my son last year, my desire was overwhelming," said Google's Food Product Manager, Anantica Singh, in a blog post.

"Fortunately, I did not have to jump in the car and go to my favorite restaurants to fill myself in. Since then, I count myself among the millions of people who regularly order food home delivery."

So far, Google is partnering with Delivery. com, Postmates, DoorDash, Slice and ChowNow, and more delivery providers are on their way.

Hey, Google, Alexa and Siri: At last you understand what we're saying.

For the wizard just say "Hey google, order food from (insert restaurant)." Over time, when your assistant gets to know your favorite dish, order your dish by selecting "Order food from (restaurant insert. ) "say.

You can use any of the services right away on time for the Memorial Day home party.
