Google today unveiled a nifty new feature to its Google Now service that makes it easier than ever to order food online. Thanks to partnerships the search giant forged with six U.S.-based food delivery providers -- Seamless, Grubhub, Eat24, Delivery.com, BeyondMenu and MyPizza.com -- it's now possible to order food directly from the search results page on Google Now.

The way Google implemented the new feature is extremely straightforward. Any time you search for a nearby restaurant (remember, Google knows your location), you'll see a new option titled "Place an order" within the search results.

Once that is selected, users will be given the option to initiate an online order through whatever food delivery provider has existing deals with said restaurant.
