Google Maps adds a handy feature.

Food delivery has become an important option during the lockdown and stay-at-home orders mandated in many cities across the US due to the coronavirus pandemic.   Google Maps added a feature to make the search for your next meal a little easier. 

Google Maps users on Android and iOS will now see whether a restaurant can deliver or will do takeout, as first spotted by Engadget Sunday. When using the navigation app, an "order online" button will show up in the info section for eateries that offer the service. 

Google said the feature is currently available in the US and will roll out to other markets in the future.
