Google Maps now tells you which takeaways are still delivering

They're the unsung heroes of the pandemic

1y ago

Google is one of the most used platforms on the internet; primarily as a search engine, but also as mode of getting us where we need to be. The hugely popular Google Maps service has served as a sat-nav for many for a long time – and it just got even more helpful.

In an attempt to do their bit to stop the spread of Covid-19, Google Maps has made a number of updates to its services – all of which involved insuring businesses advised of any changes to the services they offer, to avoid people travelling unnecessarily.

This is all very helpful. But the change that has us most excited is the one that tells us which of our local eateries are still delivering!

Now, when you open the app, there will be a bar across the top – allowing you to select from a number of useful options, including delivery and takeaway. From there, the filters allow you to show outlets that are open now. Et voilà! Dinner can be with you in no time at all.

Don't put takeaway night on hold – grab the phone and let someone else do the cooking!

We have never loved Google more.
