Google on Friday added a feature that lets people in the US order food directly from mobile searches for local restaurants.

The move came as the Internet titan maneuvers to stay in tune with the trend of smartphones being used to seek out local venues and weave itself into online commerce.

"Whether you're craving deep dish pizza or pad thai, starting today you can order food from some of your favorite restaurants directly from Google search results," the California-based firm said in a post on its Google+ social network page.

Search queries for nearby restaurants will be served up with an option to "place an order."

Tapping the option icon will let people place food orders with Seamless, Grubhub, Eat24, BeyondMenu, Delivery.com or MyPizza.com, according to Google, which is working to expand the number of delivery providers.
