As part of an ongoing quest by tech and food companies to ensure Americans won't ever need to stand up and leave their homes to find sustenance, Google has added a new way to order takeout from restaurants directly from its search results. Now when you search for a nearby delivery food emporium, you'll be able to select "place an order," an option that prompts you to select which service you'd like to order the food through without having to visit the restaurant's own website.

The search giant has only teamed up with six delivery companies so far — Seamless, Grubhub, Eat24,, BeyondMenu, and — so if your local favorite doesn't offer its food through one of those services, you'll be forced to either order the old-fashioned way or writhe around on the floor until someone takes pity on you and puts food in your mouth. Not to worry, though, hungry people — Google says it's looking to add more delivery providers in the future.
