With half a billion users doing work in Dropbox, we’ve learned a lot about how complicated it can be to get things done. You’ve told us you need to work from everywhere, collaborate with lots of people, and use a bunch of specialized tools to bring your ideas to life. We want to make that easier—whether you work on your own, with a small team, or as part of a big company. That’s why we’re introducing new productivity tools to simplify, unify, and secure your work.
Having anytime access to your photos and videos is great, but reliving those memories with your friends and family is what brings them to life. And that’s something we want to be as simple as possible. So today, we’re launching a new feature that makes it easier to share photos, videos, and other files in Facebook Messenger.
Great news for Android users working on the go: you can now work on PDFs stored in Dropbox in the Adobe Acrobat Reader mobile app.

What used to require an expensive radio studio and technical staff—plus dozens of permits—can now be done by anyone with a laptop, a mic, and a passion. In that spirit, we’re celebrating the voices at the forefront of this vibrant medium at this year’s South by Southwest with the Dropbox Podcast Studio.
With 500 million signups under our belt, it’s exciting to see Dropbox connecting people around the world with everything that’s important to them. But this milestone hints at something much bigger—how much our users are working together.
