google-maps-ios-food-orderingWhile Google Maps might have started out as an app/service to help users find their way around a city or country, over the years Google has made improvements to the service where it do a lot more. For example it can provide users with times and routes for buses/trains, it can help users hail an Uber, and recently for iOS, it even provides food delivery service information.

What this means is that as you can see in the screenshot above, users will be able to place orders from their favorite restaurants more easily, assuming that the restaurant supports food delivery or if there are third-party services that can deliver from it. You can’t actually place an order via Google Maps itself, but you will be directed to a service that can.

This isn’t exactly a new feature as back in 2015, Search Engine Land revealed that Google had already implemented a similar feature in its search results, but like we said this is new to iOS and it is within the Google Maps app itself which adds a level of convenience if you’re already searching for the restaurant.

The update should already be live, although we should note that food delivery services will differ in terms of availability from country to country. To get your hands on it, hit up the iTunes App Store for the download.
