  • That's why the social network announced on Friday a new tool that lets you order takeout directly from the site or mobile app

Facebook has been testing out this functionality since past year with select partners and now they are ready to go.

Once a restaurant has been selected, hitting Start Order will link Facebook to the ordering system. And one such way is the introduction of a new feature through which you can order for food from the app.

Presence of a new option called "Order Food" in the explore menu symbolized by a blue and white hamburger or fork and knife will be perceived.

The company says Facebook will also show you what your friends have to say about a restaurant before you make your order. In this way, Facebook does not have to compete with them as it has partnered with these services. The company also has inked agreement with restaurant chains like Papa John's, Wingstop, Panera, Jack in the Box, TGI Friday's, Denny's, El Pollo Loco, Chipotle, Five Guys and Jimmy John's.


Accessing this feature is very easy and simple.

Facebook combines options from several food ordering services so users do not have to search through multiple places to find what they are looking for.

Most people who order food already have accounts set up with individual restaurants and delivery apps, however. You can order food for pick-up or delivery directly on Facebook.

The feature is now available in the U.S. only for iOS, Android, and desktop. "If you don't have an account with that service, you can quickly and easily sign up, without leaving the Facebook app", says Facebook.
