The thought was to check whether including a passage point through Facebook's primary route could expand the utilization for the food order feature.
Facebook has now confirmed that users in the United States can order food using the social network. We've testing this since past year, and after responding to feedback and adding more partners, we're rolling out everywhere in the U.S. on iOS, Android, and desktop.
Facebook says users will now be able to choose from many different services such as Delivery.com, DoorDash and ChowNow and restaurants such as Papa John's and Panera.
To order food, a user simply needs to tap the menu button on the bottom right of the new Facebook app and then select "Order Food". On this page, you can browse food options and select Start Order when you've found what you're looking for. For example, if you have an account with Delivery.com, you can easily order with your existing login.
"People already go to Facebook to figure out what to eat by reading about nearby restaurants, and seeing what their friends say about them", added Mr Himel.
The Vice-president of Facebook, Alex Himmel said, "Once you decide you're hungry, let's take you from that decision to food in your hand".
Speculations about Facebook's "Order Food" feature had been doing rounds for some time and some of the rumors also highlighted it to be a new option within the Explore menu in the application.
