Uber Eats to test out drone delivery

Ride-sharing service Uber will soon be off the road, and in the sky.

The company is testing a new service called Uber Eats Drone Delivery.

Uber made the announcement last Wednesday after a few test runs with a McDonald's in California.

A customer will order a meal, which is then prepared and placed in a small compartment attached to the drone.

It will fly to a drop-off location near an Uber Eats driver, who then hand delivers your food.

Uber officials believe this will reduce customer wait times.
