In today’s workplace, people spend 61% of their time managing work rather than doing it. That’s the equivalent of three days a week searching for information, slogging through emails, and navigating teamwork. But what if it didn’t have to be like that? We want to bring that 61% as close to zero as possible. So we’re building products that make it easier to find the information you need, stay up to date on projects, and work more seamlessly as a team. And today, we have the first of those products and features ready for you.
We’re always looking for new and innovative ways to simplify and strengthen security. In addition to continuous infrastructure enhancements, we’ve created a number of tools to help users and teams better protect their information on Dropbox. That includes support for cutting edge technologies like Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) security keys, which we rolled out in 2015. Today, we’re excited to announce that we’ll be teaming up with Intel this year to bring built-in U2F support to Dropbox users on 7th Generation Core processors.
We’ve made it easy to access all of your files from your computers, phones, and tablets. Today, we’re bringing Dropbox to the biggest screen in your house with our new app for Xbox One. It’s the first universal Windows app for cloud storage on the gaming console, letting you view and share your photos, videos, and other files from the cloud—right on your TV.
Do trains that go through tunnels with no cell signal give you separation anxiety? Ever been halfway through a document review when you had to leave the office to catch a bus with no Wi-Fi? When you count on your travel time to be a productive part of your workday, being offline at the wrong time can be a frustrating interruption. So today, we’re introducing Dropbox mobile offline folders, a new premium feature that lets you keep working on your phone no matter where you are.
Update (November 2, 2016): Today we’re releasing two new features to help iPad users get more done. The latest version of our app adds support for Split View multitasking and brings our popular doc scanning feature, previously only on iPhone, to iPad. You can try out both features in the updated Dropbox app, available today in the App Store.
Today, Apple released macOS Sierra. Upgrading to this operating system may impact the way Dropbox interacts with your file system, so here are a few simple steps you can take to keep things running smoothly.
