Facebook has launched food ordering within its core product, enabling users to buy a takeaway without having to leave the social network.

Reminding you of your friends' birthdays, showing you which of your relatives is racist, meddling in global geopolitics. truly there is nothing Facebook can't do. You can also check out what your friends have to say about a restaurant before placing an order. Facebook says that the feature is rolling out today to all of its users in the United States and that it will be available for folks using Android and iOS as well as on the desktop. "For example, if you have an account with Delivery.com, you can easily order with your existing login". Instead, they are partnering with existing services, including GrubHub, Delivery.com, DoorDash, ChowNow, Zuppler, EatStreet, Slice, and Olo, reports The Verge.

Facebook Order Food option has been in testing since past year, during which the company worked on adding more partners and address user feedback.

As Facebook explains it, ordering food is a natural next-step for the company. So the next time you're scrolling through Facebook on the couch and you decide you're in the mood for pizza, you just have to move your thumb a little bit, and a few taps later, pizza will be on its way. So people can place an order on Facebook.

Notably, the feature is only available in the United States for now, but Himel notes Facebook has been working on the feature since 2016.

Once they've picked, the user is connected to the relevant delivery service, where they can order and pay. Though Amazon might not be making money on the food orders, its delivery service surely helps with valuable user data, notes Bloomberg. If a restaurant offers multiple services, the app will show all of them so you can choose the one you want to use.
