You Can Now Order Food Using the Facebook App

You Can Now Order Food Using the Facebook App”

Facebook will now let you order pick-up or delivery from services like DoorDash, ChowNow, EatStreet and others, or right from restaurants like Five Guys, Panera and Chipotle, Facebook said in a blogpost Friday. That's where all the ordering actually happens, so you're not actually doing much with the Facebook app beyond finding a restaurant and tapping your preferred delivery option.

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

Users can find the new option "Order Food" in the Explore menu in the Facebook app, where you can then browse area restaurants and click "Start Order" when you know what you want.

Seamless, one of the largest food delivery services in the USA, is not one of Facebook's launch partners for food ordering.

A listing of local restaurants will appear based on your current location and you'll be able to filter by address, cuisine, pickup vs. delivery, as well as which restaurants are now open. But it's not at all what you might think; Facebook hasn't created its own answer to Seamless, which would be massive news for the restaurant industry.

In addition, you'll be able to read reviews from friends about the restaurant in question, to help you make your decision. All types of restaurants operate Facebook pages and the company has seen a rise in users searching out food on its site. Once you do, Facebook will bring up an in-app browser that takes you through the existing websites for Delivery.com and the others.
