How to Use Google Delivery to Order in From Local Restaurants

Order food online directly from Google Assistant, Maps, and Search

Thanks to partnerships with food delivery companies such as DoorDash, Postmates, Slice, ChowNow, GrubHub, and, you can now place orders through Google search, Maps, and the Assistant, all without using branded food delivery apps. 

How Ordering With Google Delivery Works

If you're searching online for food, and the restaurant you're looking for uses a food delivery service, you'll see an Order Online button in Google search results or Google Maps. This means you can place your delivery order through Google Delivery, and you don't need an account with any of the delivery services to use those services. Place your order using your Google account.

Menus are displayed in the apps, where you'll also see the minimum order amount and respective delivery fees, and the ordering process is much like the one in the branded delivery apps. You'll have options available to enter promo and coupon codes or charge the meal to your credit card (or Google Pay).

Mobile users can also use Google Assistant to place orders or reorders by voice. The Assistant will take you part of the way through the ordering process, but at a certain point, you'll have to pick up your device to make your choices by tapping the screen.

If you haven't set up a delivery address or payment information in your Google Account, you'll be prompted to do so at the appropriate time during your order. 

Ordering Food Delivery Through Google Search

Depending on your location and the delivery service you choose, the names of some buttons or links may be slightly different. For example, Click to Order, Checkout, or Place order.

Let Google Assistant Complete Your Order

If you’d like to take your online food-ordering ease a step further, Google has partnered with select restaurant chains to create a system, powered by Duplex on the web, where Google Assistant actually completes your order for you.

To try it out, find a participating restaurant from Google’s Android app and tap Order Online. Create your order as usual, then go to checkout. Assistant takes over from here, filling in your contact info and grabbing payment details saved in Google Pay, completing your order automatically.

Google plans to expand this system to include more restaurants throughout the U.S.
