Building new products is about learning as much as it’s about making. It’s also about tough choices. Over the past few months, we’ve increased our team’s focus on collaboration and simplifying the way people work together. In light of that, we’ve made the difficult decision to shut down Carousel and Mailbox.
It’s hard to believe how much we accomplished together this year. Thanks for being with us along the way.
I think 2013’s been a pretty great year. We refreshed just about everything we could, and started crafting a home for your photos. For people using Dropbox at work, we designed a brand new Dropbox for Business that gives both users and companies what they’ve been asking for. Meanwhile, we introduced the Dropbox Platform to developers worldwide, and brought Dropbox to seven new languages.
This stuff makes me happy,
Today we’re really excited to welcome the Mailbox team to Dropbox.
Like many of you, when we discovered Mailbox we fell in love—it was simple, delightful, and beautifully engineered. Many have promised to help us with our overflowing inboxes, but the Mailbox team actually delivered.
After spending time with Gentry, Scott, and the team, it became clear that their calling was the same as ours at Dropbox—to solve life’s hidden problems and reimagine the things we do every day. We all quickly realized that together we could save millions of people a lot of pain.
