    How To Find Restaurants Offering Takeout And Delivery Options With Google Maps

    With everyone quarantined and almost everything shut down, Google Maps wants to make finding food easier during this trying time. Both the Google Maps website and app are now highlighting restaurants near you that are still offering to-go and delivery options that you can rely on while you’re in quarantine.

    To help you find nearby restaurants that offer delivery and takeout options, Google Maps is highlighting a couple of new shortcuts that work just like other popular Maps shortcuts you know and love. And although takeout and delivery shortcuts aren’t exactly new to Google Maps users, some are starting to notice just how useful they are.

    Google’s initiative to highlight to-go food supply options amid the coronavirus pandemic is a move in the right direction — and other tech companies should take note.

    How Does it work?

    Simply open the Google Maps app and look for two new shortcuts on the home screen: Takeout and Delivery.

    Click on one of these shortcuts to find restaurants offering takeout and delivery nearby. Results will include both local restaurants and chains like Subway and Pizza Hut. In some cases, you’ll even be able to order food right from within the Google Maps app. But take note that ordering food from within the Maps app is possible only if the restaurant you want to order from supports the functionality.

    The “takeout” and “delivery” shortcuts are currently available for Google Maps users on Android and iOS in the US, the UK, France, the Netherlands, and India. Google also said the new feature will roll out to other markets in the near future.
