Facebook has been testing this feature since a year ago and after responding to feedback and adding more partners, the company rolled it out in the USA on iOS, Android and desktop. Instead of competing directly with other food ordering services, Facebook is partnering with companies already in the business including EatStreet, Delivery.com, DoorDash, ChowNow, Olo, Zuppler and Slice.
To order food, a user simply needs to tap the menu button on the bottom right of the new Facebook app and then select "Order Food".More news: Honor 6C Pro unveiled with modest specs and sleek design
The list of national restaurants covers Papa John's, Wingstop, Panera, Jack in the Box, TGI Friday's, Denny's, EL Pollo Loco, Chipotle, Five Guys and Jimmy John's alongside local eateries.
This is the ability to order food takeout so that hungry FB users will not even need to go away from the website or app. You can also check out what your friends have to say about a restaurant before placing an order. If a restaurant works with multiple delivery services, customers can select the service they prefer. Aside from virtual reality [VIDEO] possibilities, one method that Facebook is looking to fully implement is one that already exists in their #Messenger service in some form.More news: Collins says she's not running for governor, will stay in Senate
The company has been testing the functionality since 2016, and has now brought it to all users in the U.S., across iOS, Android and the desktop.
