How to order food online directly via Google

Google has constantly aimed to ease our lives and help us manage it more efficiently. It is probably as a result of services like Gmail, Drive, Maps, and Search which have become an integral part of our lives.

The Google Assistant is another great service from the search engine giant that can do five different voices as per your comfort and set up cool routines to aid your everyday life.

But we are the fortunate ones and another great feature has arrived to make life more efficient for us.
