Google Express
Google Express is branching out to grocery delivery as well.

Google is trying to find a new way to move its way into consumers’ daily life experience.

The massive tech company started delivering produce, meat, eggs and other perishable goods on Feb. 17 to parts of San Francisco and Los Angeles. This new endeavor is under the Google Express umbrella of the company that partners with retailers in US cities to quickly deliver goods to buyers.

“Whether you need to restock your pantry, get some ingredients for tonight’s dinner, or just need some help carrying the heavier stuff -- all you have to do is place your order, and we'll take care of the rest,” the company said in a recent blog post

Google’s deliveries will come from Costco, Whole Foods and Smart & Final in San Francisco. For Los Angeles, Costco, Smart & Final and Vincente will all be options.

The delivery time will also be cut from the original four hours of Google Express down to two hours.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the minimum size for an order including fresh groceries increased from $15 to $35 with this announcement.

In recent months, Google Express has expanded beyond the state of California and into the Midwest, including: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin all have the service. There was no announcement about these states picking up Google Express with fresh-grocery deliveries at this time.
