Dropbox has stayed one of the finest cloud storage options despite competition from tech giants like Google and Microsoft because it only synchronizes documents. The desktop app has recently been overhauled to become a hub for all of your job, however, and Dropbox is now reinventing with improved operations for individuals working on a project.
By adding a description, Dropbox now enables you to transform any folder into a’ Space.’ You can pin files and folders once you do that and generate lists / to-dos. This is in addition to all the characteristics that already exist in periodic Dropbox folders, such as adding remarks to documents, importing web links, and viewing file history.
Right now, the Android app only seems to have rudimentary space support — descriptions can not be edited, and to-dos can not be added (but they can be finished). Hopefully, this will improve over time. Dropbox says a feature for searching inside documents is coming soon.
According to Dropbox CEO Drew Houston, at least 80% of the customers of the product depend on it for job.
It makes sense, then, that the business is focusing on trying to cement its workplace place; shedding its picture as “just” a file storage business (at a moment when almost every large business has its own cloud storage offering) and evolving into something that is more immutably central to everyday life.
The main changes made within new structure includes Mini cooperation hubs for your team, full with comment streams, AI to highlight mid-meeting files, and integration into Slack, Trello and G Suite. With a revised interface that brings much of the functionality of Dropbox out of the OS and into its own dedicated app, it is by far the largest user-facing change the product has seen since its launch.
