With more than 18 billion PDF files stored in Dropbox, they’re critical to how many of our users get work done. In fact, they’re one of the most common business file types in Dropbox. So we asked ourselves, how can we make working with PDFs even easier in Dropbox? That’s the idea behind our new partnership with Adobe. We’re releasing the first phase of the partnership today, with even deeper mobile integrations to follow in the coming months.
Previously available just for Dropbox for Business users, the badge is available today for everyone on Dropbox — so you can work more efficiently with anyone, right from your Microsoft Office file.
If you’ve been using our desktop application, you know how magical the Dropbox folder is. Whenever you save a photo, doc, or video to the folder, it’s automatically backed up online and saved to all of your devices. But if you’re a new user, you may not know that you can do even more with your files — from sharing to commenting — right from the Dropbox folder on your computer.
Over the next few weeks, you’ll start seeing an “Open” button when you preview a file on the web that already lives in the Dropbox folder on your computer. That button will open the file immediately in its native application.
One of the best things about Dropbox is that you can use it on almost any device, or even switch between devices without missing a beat. That’s why we’ve partnered with HP and Acer — to help make Dropbox instantly available on even more PCs and tablets, where you can access, collaborate, and share your stuff.
Today, we’re excited to introduce the latest version of the desktop client that includes streaming sync — a newly optimized sync for large files — and other features that improve how you use Dropbox on your computer.
