Alphabet, Google’s parent company has posted its financial results for Q1 2016 this week, revealing the profitability of some of its other experimental ventures for the first time.

Q1 2016 ended on March 30th for Alphabet, during which time Alphabet’s experiments lost a total of $802 million, which is up from the $633 million loss from the year-ago quarter.

That said they did bring in $166 million in revenue, which is more than double that of last year’s earnings, meaning that although they aren’t profitable, they are growing faster than their losses are.

These bets include Google X, Calico, Verily, Google Fiber, Nest, Boston Dynamics and the Google self-driving car.

Throughout 2015, these companies lost a total of $3.6 billion.

Aside from this revenue, Alphabet posted a revenue of $20.3 billion, which is up 17 percent year-over-year, as well as a net income of $4.2 billion, which is up 20 percent year-over-year.

Most of this is made up of revenue from Google, which totalled $18 billion, and is up 16 percent year-over-year, with $2 billion from App Store and hardware sales, which is up 24 percent year-over-year.
