The future of ordering pizza on the go will soon mean you don’t even have to use your phone.

Domino’s Pizza is teaming up with technology firm Xevo to create an app that allows you to order pizzas for delivery from within your car. Xevo has already created such technology for Applebee’s, Starbucks, and IHOP, among other big names in food.
The technology is meant to be as distraction-free as possible, according to Xevo CEO Dan Gittleman. Options such as “Easy Order” and “Recent Order” are programmed into the app to either select your most recent order or one that you can customize within the Domino’s app. It allows you to order with as few touches as possible while keeping your eyes on the road, a concern that arose when some of this ordering technology first came out.
While the app isn’t voice activated, it is easy to access from a car’s digital display, and can be used to order Domino’s pizza at any address or delivery hotspot. These include all of the parks, beaches, and other locations Domino’s added to that list last year.
Millions of cars that have Xevo’s Market and e-commerce platform should have this option integrated by the end of 2019. Xevo didn’t provide specifics of which car brands have the technology, but their programming is built into over 25 million cars from makers like Chevy, GMC, Cadillac, Buick, Toyota, Lexus, Hyundai, and Ford, according to their website. Additionally, future car models will have the technology built in, meaning new cars that you purchase in the future may have this ability to order Domino’s built in from the start.
