These days, work doesn’t just happen at your desk. From brainstorming over video chat to reviewing reports on the train, teamwork can take many forms. That’s why your tools need to be as flexible as the way you work. Today, we’re announcing new updates to our iOS and Android mobile apps that help you stay productive on the go—no matter where you are or how you work.
When you’re working with others, finding the right file is just the beginning. What about all the other work that happens around those files? Sometimes that context and those sharing relationships are just as important as the file itself. That’s why we’re excited to roll out our new redesigned website to all users today. Dropbox.com is designed to bring your files to life with team-first functionality—so it’s not just a place for your files, but for people and conversations, too. Here’s what’s new and what it means for you.
More than a doc, Dropbox Paper is a flexible workspace that brings people and ideas together. While it’s a snap to get started, power users can get even more out of Paper using a few extra tools. Here are 10 hidden features we built for people who want to go beyond the basics.
You might put in eight hours a day at the office, but how much of that time is really spent on productive work? According to a McKinsey Global Institute study, only 39% of an employee’s time is spent on role-specific tasks. The other 61%?

Let’s face it: we’ve turned busyness into a lifestyle. The workday is filled with meetings, calls, emails, and surprise deadlines. We spend our evenings trying to catch up. We raise kids, race through TV episodes, or respond to a barrage of after-hours work messages. It’s crazy and constant, but the ends—a successful career, a satisfying home life—justify the means. Right?
Psychological research suggests we’re doing it all wrong.
