You Can Now Order Food Through Facebook

It's pretty simple. Like every other delivery app out there, Facebook's Order Food will allow you to browse a list of available restaurants near you and order either takeout or delivery from your favorite.

Facebook today announced a new feature in its app that allows users to order food from local restaurants.

"People already go to Facebook to browse restaurants and decide where to eat or where to get food, so we're making that easier".

Facebook wants to develop itself as a one-stop solution for nearly all you need.

In its latest bid to trap you in a never-ending vortex of high school exes and oversharing parents, Facebook has introduced a feature where you can order food without leaving the site itself. It'll be available in the USA only, at least initially, through Facebook's mobile apps for iOS and Android, and through your desktop browser. Instead, they are partnering with existing services, including GrubHub, Delivery.com, DoorDash, ChowNow, Zuppler, EatStreet, Slice, and Olo, reports The Verge. So really, the Facebook portion is more like a jumping off point to direct users to the food delivery service. The process works the same way - simply select the restaurant and Facebook will redirect you to their ordering service. If a restaurant offers multiple services, the app will show all of them so you can choose the one you want to use. The value for Facebook is obvious; the company hopes you'll fill your craving and then keep swiping through your news feed with your greasy fingers. The feature is available now on the Facebook app and website.

"Order Food", this new feature has been introduced for US users and we can hope for it to be released in other countries as well, soon.
