Facebook has been testing this feature since previous year, and after responding to feedback and adding more partners, it's rolling the service out everywhere in the United States on iOS, Android and desktop.

It's an unusual new feature that's created to keep people on Facebook for longer, and it wouldn't be hugely surprising to see it come to the United Kingdom in the future.

Facebook also teamed up with restaurant chains like Papa John's, Five Guys and Panera, the company said. If not, you'll have the capacity to agree to accept a Delivery.com account specifically in the Facebook application, the organization says. The previous fall, it reported an arrangement with the online ordering services Delivery.com and Slice, which enabled Facebook clients to put orders from supported eateries through their own particular Facebook Pages.

Launched on Friday, the Order Food section can be found in the Explore menu for desktop and mobile users.

Ordering food would be very easy with this service.

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".

The feature is now available in the US only for iOS, Android, and desktop. Users that already have a Delivery.com account can use their existing logins to place the orders.

"If the restaurant you want to order from offers takeout or delivery with multiple services, you can select which service you'd like to use", explained Facebook's Alex Himel. Surprisingly, other food and delivery service GrubHub Inc experienced a almost 3 percent drop since Friday.
