Starting in August, ordering from Pizza Hut will be as simple as a few keystrokes on Twitter or Facebook’s Messenger, Fortune magazine reported Wednesday.

“Yum! Brands’ Pizza Hut announced the new service on Tuesday, revealing a partnership with chatbot startup Conversable, which also recently added Whole Foods Market and fast-casual food chain Wingstop to its list of clients,” noted Fortune.

Of course, there is a catch. The feature works when you “reorder favorite or saved orders from any U.S. location of the restaurant chain by chatting directly with the Pizza Hut accounts on either Twitter or Facebook.”

Accordingly, complicated orders with special directions would still best be done with the traditional phone call or filling out an order via company website.

Rival pizza chain Domino’s unveiled its order-by-Twitter feature in May 2015. Domino’s Anyware ordering service is also accessible via text message, Amazon Echo, Smart TV apps and even your car’s dashboard, assuming, that is, you drive a Ford equipped with the proper technology.
