A new option that enables Facebook users to order for food from its App is being launched by the social network giant. In times past, users usually have to visit separate food delivery services website or app to make an order; Facebook is making it easier by integrating into its app & web menu an option called “Order Food”.

If you are using a portable PC or mobile, you will see a striking hamburger icon which represents the ‘Order Food’ option. This feature is still being tested due to its availability to few Facebook users in the US; a report by TechCrunch reveals that the time frame it will be available to everyone cannot be determined now.

The new feature is as a result of collaboration between Facebook and online ordering services Delivery.com and Slice. One thing to note is both ordering services are only focused on US residents, more collaboration will be required from other similar service before the 'Order Food' option can be available to other respective countries.

How Facebook Order Food feature works

To order for food from Facebook using the app or web menu is simple. The entire procedure occurs within the Facebook app. There is a map which guides users of the closest restaurants to them which supports the service. Afterwards, you can see reviews, prices of items and other details before finally selecting your choice item.

Once you have chosen the food you want, a confirmation screen shows up informing you when your request is probably going to be ready. Only few restaurants give you the option of delivery, you may end up going to pick it up by yourself.

Since Facebook ‘Order Food’ option is still in testing phase, not all users may see the option as of now.
