Facebook is done with drones. Well, sort of.

The social media site has chosen not to create drones that would provide Internet access to people in remote areas.

Facebook built a drone a few years ago and did a few test flights.

The results were mixed, though.

Facebook now says it will join forces with other companies to create drones that can beam Internet capabilities from above.
