  • Facebook now lets you order food without leaving Facebook

Today, the company officially launched its newest feature, which will allow you to order food from local restaurants using the app.

A new "order food" feature rolled out for US users lets Facebook users order delivery or takeout from restaurant chains such as Papa John's and Panera, and on-demand services including Delivery.com and DoorDash.

Here's how it works: If you open the Explore menu on Facebook, you'll see a new section called "Order Food", from there, you'll be able to, well ... order food. Facebook aggregates services like delivery.com and DoorDash, as well as restaurants like Five Guys, Papa John's, Panera Bread, and Chipotle.

The user can then select a "pickup" or "delivery" option, and start an order at a restaurant. It'll be available in the United States only, at least initially, through Facebook's mobile apps for iOS and Android, and through your desktop browser.

Orders can be placed for either takeout or delivery, and if you already have a Delivery.com account, you can use your existing login.

Each restaurants Facebook reviews and ratings are also available to the user. If you don't have an account with that service, you can quickly and easily sign up, without leaving the Facebook app.

Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) is rolling out the ability to order food straight through its website. Facebook's VP of Local Alex Himel explains, "From local spots to national chains, Facebook connects you with old favourites and new discoveries in just a few taps".

Facebook said it has no plans to hire drivers and actually deliver food, but it hopes the new ordering feature will keep users on its site longer, instead of logging off to place orders elsewhere.
