Facebook introduces a new food ordering feature

Share

You just need to go to the explore menu in your Facebook app and select "Order Food" from the menu.

It's an unusual new feature that's created to keep people on Facebook for longer, and it wouldn't be hugely surprising to see it come to the United Kingdom in the future.

It has introduced a new feature called "Order Food" which lets you order the food from local restaurants. Rather than contending specifically with other food delivery organizations, Facebook is collaborating with a few industry players on this new service that includes EatStreet, Delivery.com, DoorDash, ChowNow, Olo, Zuppler, and Slice. Now with the new Order Food button, users will be able to order food from their favorite restaurants with a click of a button.

Facebook began testing the service several months ago and has already offered similar functionality inside Facebook Messenger, its chat client.

Facebook also teamed up with restaurant chains like Papa John's, Five Guys and Panera, the company said.

Accessing this feature is very easy and simple. Facebook decided it is time to roll it out across the U.S.to all users on iOS, Android and desktop. For example, if you have an account with Delivery.com, you can easily order with your existing login. On this page, you can browse food options and select Start Order when you've found what you're looking for. Surprisingly, other food and delivery service GrubHub Inc experienced a almost 3 percent drop since Friday. "If you don't have an account with that service, you can quickly and easily sign up, without leaving the Facebook app", says Facebook.
