Facebook launches new food-ordering feature

The company has been testing the functionality since 2016, and has now brought it to all users in the USA, across iOS, Android and the desktop.

The company says Facebook will also show you what your friends have to say about a restaurant before you make your order.

Users can browse restaurants nearby by visiting the "Order Food" section in the "Explore" menu. Select start order. If the restaurant offers takeout or delivery with multiple services, you can select which one you'd like to use.

US officials did not confirm the details. "After that, our priority was to free the hostages safely", said Ghafoor. Meanwhile, Mr Boyle denied reports he had had refused to board a plane that was preparing to take the family home.

Users should find the new delivery option in the latest Facebook app as it rolls out to desktop, Android and iOS devices in the USA now. For example, if you choose a restaurant and they are offering delivery services through Delivery.com, you can choose it and login with your current Delivery.com credentials.

But if you're asking me why you should use Facebook to order food instead of the other apps (exclusively made for ordering food), I really do not have a very satisfying answer to that. Snapchat has been targeted particularly heavily, but users have even seen a Tinder-like matching feature appear on the site. You don't even have to exit the app in order to get some food.

Today, Facebook affirmed that the Order Food option has been in testing for a year now, and, in the wake of adding more partners and responding to client input, it's taking off over the U.S.to all clients on iOS, Android, and desktop. The previous fall, it reported an arrangement with the online ordering services Delivery.com and Slice, which enabled Facebook clients to put orders from supported eateries through their own particular Facebook Pages.
