Hungry? Let Google bring food right at your doorstep.

Much to the surprise of unsuspecting netizens, Google now lets U.S.-based users to order food through six companies, directly from search results, TechCrunch reported. These ordering outlets include Seamless, Grubhub, Eat24, Delivery.com, BeyondMenu and MyPizza.com.

Google announced, "Whether you're craving deep dish pizza or pad thai, starting today you can order food from some of your favorite restaurants directly from Google search results."

According to Gizmodo, as users search for nearby food joints, a "place an order" option linking to the service providers will come handy.

The new tool is packed with the rest of Google's business directory listings. Unfortunately, is not available on PCs, PCWorld reminded.

Living in a service-covered area, a user who wants to order pizza could type "pizza" right on his / her phone's Google search. As usual, an array of establishments will be listed on screen.

As the user picks his / her restaurant of choice, the "place an order" link will be available, as seen here (via The Next Web). Alternatively, the user can search for his / her favorite food chain right away.

As told by Time, Google is planning to add more options in the future. The outlet is convinced that more functionality in mobile searches makes sense for the company, considering that its search dominance has been "put under pressure" by single-purpose apps.

In other news, Google has also updated its Maps app for Android. Version 9.8 now allows users to add multiple photos simultaneously, hide personal, scheduled events on location cards and get all scheduled events with new commands, CNET reported.

Last month, Google also took the wraps off its long-anticipated wireless carrier service, Project Fi. The service allows consumers do the talking, texting and Wi-Fi tethering from $20, with rates measured on a monthly basis.

Project Fi makes use of Sprint and T-Mobile's networks, including over a million free Wi-Fi hot spots. Google aims to make connections strong and convenient not just across the United States, but throughout more than 120 countries around the globe.

Nick Fox, Google's VP of Communications Products, wrote in a blog post, "In today's mobile world, fast and reliable connectivity is almost second nature. But even in places like the U.S., where mobile connections are nearly ubiquitous, there are still times when you turn to your phone for that split-second answer and don't have fast enough speed."

Project Fi is designed "to explore this opportunity by introducing new ideas through a fast and easy wireless experience," Fox said.
