Starting today, when you click on a Dropbox shared link from your mobile device, you can open the file or folder right in the Dropbox app — which means you get rich previews for documents and photos and an easy way to save the file or folder to your Dropbox account.
Today we’re excited to announce the next phase of our partnership with Microsoft: the Dropbox app is now available for Windows phones and tablets.
The new Dropbox and Microsoft Office integrations are here! Now you can work on Office files even when you’re on the go — you can edit them from your Dropbox app, and access your Dropbox files directly from the Office apps. The new features are available today on your iPhone, Android phone, or iPad.
We’re always listening and looking for ways to make Dropbox fit more seamlessly into how you work — no matter which device you’re on. Exporting Dropbox files to an external SD card has been one of our most-requested Android features, which is why we’re excited that it’s part of our latest Dropbox for Android release, available for all versions of Android.
Exporting Dropbox files to your SD card gives you an easy way to transfer all your stuff — meeting agendas, trip photos, shopping lists, and more — as you move between Android devices, even without an Internet connection.
We first partnered with Samsung in 2011 to bring Dropbox to millions of people around the world. It’s been great hearing stories from those of you using Dropbox on Samsung devices — from keeping your memories safe even if your phone goes for a swim, to sharing docs with coworkers halfway around the globe.
Now we’re teaming up with Samsung to give you even more ways to use Dropbox on Samsung!
Starting at the end of September, if you purchase select new Samsung devices — including the Galaxy Note 4 announced today — you’ll gain access to Dropbox seamlessly through core apps on Samsung devices.
Whether you’re just getting started with Dropbox for Android or you’re a longtime user, here are 5 tips to help you get the most from the app. These’ll also help you take advantage of our recent feature updates!
