Want Takeout Delivered To Your Door? Google Lets You Order Delicious Grub From Your Search Results

If you're looking up restaurants on Google, chances are you're hungry -- it doesn't take a leap of faith to come to that conclusion. To help satisfy whatever delectable item or dish you're craving when you search for food, Google now lets you place an order for food directly from its search results, provided the restaurant you're looking up has partnered with one of several delivery services.

At the outset, Google has integrated the functionality from half a dozen delivery providers in the U.S., including Seamless, Grubhub, Eat24, Delivery.com, BeyondMenu, and MyPizza.com. This is just the beginning -- Google says it has plans of adding even more delivery services in the future, though it didn't say which ones or when.

"Whether you’re craving deep dish pizza or pad thai, starting today you can order food from some of your favorite restaurants directly from Google search results. When you search for a nearby restaurant on your phone, you’ll see an option to 'Place an order' in the search results. Just tap that, choose the delivery service and you’ll be taken to their website to complete the order," Google explains in a Google+ post.

Food delivery is a growing business. Investors have poured hundreds of millions of dollars into various food delivery startups in the past year alone, and with Google backing the industry in such a fashion, it's only going to become more popular.
