Morning Brew's Patrick Kulp writing for Tech Brew is reporting on Wing's drone delivery business. 

Google's Wing, a subsidiary of Alphabet, is introducing a larger delivery drone capable of carrying packages up to five pounds, doubling the capacity of its current models. This advancement comes as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has eased regulations, allowing drones to fly beyond the visual line of sight, which is seen as a significant step towards more widespread drone delivery services. Wing's new drone is part of an effort to increase versatility in fulfilling a variety of orders for companies like Walmart, DoorDash, and Apian. Walmart has already expanded its partnership with Wing and Zipline, indicating a growing interest in drone delivery. The new drone, which can travel 12 miles round trip at 65 miles per hour, aims to efficiently handle the 30% of orders that currently require two smaller drones. With the promise of cheaper, faster, and more sustainable delivery, and despite past regulatory and logistical challenges, Wing plans to launch the larger drone within the next year.
