The “Inbox” by Gmail app for iOS devices has been updated with support for the iPhone X, over eight months after the super premium iPhone was unveiled.

In a 144 MB update pushed out on the App Store, Google said the “Inbox” now supports Apple’s pricier iPhone variant, with little else by way of changes in the update text, The Verge reported late on Thursday.

Essentially, the update removes the black bars on the top and bottom of the screen so it fits the iPhone X’s screen more naturally, with its funky 19.5:9 aspect ratio.

Saving people the trouble of having to download an additional app, Google is now letting users order food directly via Search, Maps, or Assistant using its partnerships with delivery companies.

Google has added a new “Order Online” button on Search and Maps which would appear when users would search for a supported restaurant, The Verge reported on Thursday.

Users can pick between pickup and delivery and select which service they want to order their food through.

If the restaurant supports it, the ordering selections would be made entirely through Google’s interface and Google Pay.
