Walmart's announcement that it will offer a drone delivery option to customers in a few states has been met with excitement and skepticism.

Some see it as a convenient way to get their purchases delivered quickly and without hassle. Others worry about the safety of having drones flying around neighborhoods and fear that the technology is not yet ready for widespread use.

Walmart plans to start its drone delivery program in select locations later this year, including Texas, and it will be interesting to see how customers react. Ultimately, though, it seems likely that drone delivery will become increasingly popular in the years to come.

If you're interested, here's how it will work:

Texas residents can place orders for delivery on between 8 am and 8 pm seven days a week. Customers will be charged a one-time fee of $3.99 each time they use the airdrop delivery service.

However, the weight of the items in the delivery box cannot exceed ten pounds. This is because the drones that will deliver the packages can only transport light packages, so this won't work for heavier items.

After placing your order, Walmart claims that the drone will be capable of making deliveries within 30 minutes. However, it could take up to two hours in some cases.

What do you think of Walmart's new "drone deliver" service?

Is this something you're willing to try?
