Monday at the Mobile World Congress currently convening in Barcelona, Google announced the company’s plans for Titan, the drone company that Google acquired last year.

Similar to the goal of Google’s ‘Project Loon,’ the Titan drones have the ability to stay aloft for long periods of time while using little energy and can carry a payload capable of providing Internet connectivity to people on the ground.
