Google's Express delivery service has already been delivering food for a while, but it's about to expand those efforts in a big, big way. The internet giant tells Bloomberg that it will start testing deliveries of fresh food and groceries in both San Francisco and another, unnamed US city sometime later this year. Yes, you may well get fruits and veggies (technically sourced from places like Costco and Whole Foods) through your web search provider. This isn't just a kindness, though. Fresh food is potentially cheaper, since Google won't have to deal with refrigeration and other logistics involved with frozen goods. Also, this gives it a better shot at competing with Amazon Fresh -- it can offer both lower delivery rates and more of the produce you want.
