Google's Wing Launches Drone Delivery Service

The drone division of Google’s parent company Alphabet is launching a commercial drone delivery service.

The air delivery service by Wing, the drone company, will carry a range of items such as hot coffee, fresh food and over-the-counter items ordered by mobile app.

The service is starting in Canberra, Australia, where Wing has been testing drone deliveries since 2014 and has delivered items more than 3,000 times during that period.

The delivery service will initially be available to a limited set of eligible homes, according to Wing.

“Whether you’re a parent with a sick child at home and have run out of baby paracetamol, a busy professional who forgot to pick up fresh bread during your regular weekly shop, or you simply just want to order your morning flat white without the hassle of having to drive to the cafe, Wing has teamed with local Canberra businesses to give customers the opportunity to have a range of goods delivered in a handful of minutes,” states the drone service announcement.
