Recently Facebook announced it was integrating food delivery in its app, allowing users to order delivery without actually logging out of Facebook. On the footsteps of that announcement, Google followed suit with an update that allows users to order food delivery directly through Google Maps. This interesting information came to us from CNBC in their article, “Google just made it super easy to order food delivery.”

Google Maps for iOS version 4.24.0 allows users to place local delivery orders using a selection of on-demand food delivery services, including Seamless and Grubhub.

You might think this is a new line of business for these tech giants, but it is really just a way to ensure you never leave their apps again — even if you need to order lunch.
