This possibility will appear in the payment service AliPay

Alibaba, the Chinese trading platform, is working on apps for ordering food and booking restaurants right from the car. They will become part of the AliPay payment service integrated into the AliOS proprietary operating system designed for multimedia systems.

According to the publication TechCrunch, you can manage such applications using the touch screen, gestures or voice. At the same time, Alibaba invites to create services and third-party developers. This will allow the company to build an ecosystem similar to the Apple AppStore, with its specific security and quality control criteria.

In 2017, Alibaba re-branded the AliOS operating system with a focus on its use in cars and the Internet of things. The integration of AliOS-based solutions is handled by Banma Network, a joint venture between Alibaba, SAIC Motor and Dongfeng Peugeot Citroen.

General Motors has a similar online marketplace trading platform through which you can pay for goods and services from third-party companies. In addition to paying for refueling and accessing hotel reservations at restaurants, the GM service allows you to order food or pay for dry cleaning.
