Google just beat Amazon to launching one of the first ever drone delivery services

A startup owned by Google’s parent company Alphabet has just secured approval for one of the first ever drone delivery services.

Wing, which graduated to become its own company under the Alphabet brand last year, will launch its first commercial delivery service in Canberra, Australia.

The company confirmed the move in a blog on Tuesday after it secured approval from Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) following a successful trial. A CASA spokesman confirmed to Business Insider that it had approved the delivery service and said it is “very likely” to be a world first.
