Update: Things have changed, and Google Shopping Express is now delivering seven items. The Nexus 10 has jumped up to 32GB, and it's joined by four cases for the Nexus 7.

Google Shopping Express is a same-day delivery service that's only available in the area from San Francisco to San Jose. Do you feel that, Americans? That sensation is what our international readers experience nearly every time we mention a new Google service. Let it sink in.

As for those of you who do live in San Francisco, Google will now deliver products directly from the Play Store. However, the selection's pretty scarce for the time being. You can have your choice of a Chromecast, a 16GB 2013 Nexus 7, or a 16GB Nexus 10. That's it. You can't opt for a larger size or a model that can access cellular data. For those options, you have to wait a few extra days like the rest of us.

Google Shopping Express purchases made up until 5pm PST on December 24th will be delivered in time for Christmas, so at the very least, it's a last minute way to pick up a gift for that techie brother-in-law showing up this year that you forgot about.

    Yeah definitely doesn't include GPad GE. Ordered on Tuesday, said 1 to 2 day shipping, chose overnight delivery. Now my email says not leaving warehouse till the 23rd.

    Nice, I live in San Jose and Google Shopping is available here too. Love it. They need to get the Nexus 5 in there though in case I need to buy one on a whim and have it delivered same day.

      We hate you.

    Google made an entire app to sell 3 things to one city?

      They have lots of money that remains from the investiments on costumer service that they don't do.

      No, the app's old. I just linked to it for convenience.

        Minor problem, but can you correct the article to say "The Peninsula" instead of "the west bay". Nobody calls it that, even officially. It's "The area from San Francisco to the Silicon Valley, geographically part of the San Francisco Peninsula, is known locally as The Peninsula."

      Google Shopping Express delivers from more than just the Play Store: http://i.imgur.com/JP6pExs.png.

        If they could just get Walmart on there I would hardly have to leave my house (just for weekly meat, veg, and dairy runs). Housing is so expensive here I have to save where I can, and Walmart usually has better prices on groceries than Whole Foods, Nob Hill, even Safeway and Target. I was thrilled when they got Costco on there, but the Costco selection is pretty limited within the app.

    You mean 32 GB Nexus 10 ? 16 GB is out of inventory for a while now.

    • http://friskychatter.com/ _jsw_

      Yup - the 32GB. I downloaded the app and lied about where I live just to check.

        HOW DARE YOU

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      16GB, as per the screenshot, at least yesterday.

      Update: It's now selling 6 items, and the 16GB is now 32GB. We'll update the story.

    Feel the empathy, bitches! >=)

    IDK if it's still available, but I bought a brand new 32GB Nexus 10 from Amazon not too long ago and saved $100 off the list price on Google Play. :)

  • Cesar

    Yay, another service that's only available in the US! Take that, other countries! :D

    "only available in San Francisco"

    Google, y u do dis to me? D:

  • Daniel Pogue

    Thank you for acknodleging the pains of us international readers.

    it's not called "the West Bay". There's a South Bay and an East Bay. There's no North Bay, that's called Marin for some reason. And the peninsula is called "The Peninsula", not the West Bay.
