What is it
Google launched a new feature on Google Maps on mobile, where customers can see their Takeaway/Takeout delivery status live and more.
If you order Takeaway/Takeout through a Google My Business Profile Online Orders Link using Google Maps app, Google Maps will now show the live delivery status of your order.
Also, you will be able to see the wait times, delivery fees, and easily reorder your favourites right from the Google Maps app.
This feature is available:
- Countries: U.S., Canada, Germany, Australia, Brazil and India.
- Customers need to order from Google Maps App on Android or iOS.
- Only available to food businesses that authorised a Google-approved provider to fulfil their online orders.
Conclusion on this Google My Business Update
The only issue is that delivery companies take a big cut from restaurants and takeaway businesses so it may be better for consumers but not for many restaurants and other food businesses trying to survive.
Google advised as well you’ll soon be able to quickly see the status of your restaurant reservation in 70 countries around the world.
