Earlier this year, Dropbox announced its partnership with Google to bring native G Suite integration to Dropbox storage and today, the company has introduced its first product integration, an add-on for Gmail that will help users get things done faster.
Using the new add-on, Gmail users will be able to view, store, and share any file via Dropbox without leaving their inbox. The new add-on will work with any browser and the Gmail app for Android and is coming soon to Gmail iOS app as well.
Dropbox says the integration has deepened its investment in the G Suite ecosystem, as it brings a cross-browser, cross-platform addition to its existing Dropbox for Gmail extension for Chrome.
Below are the new add-on’s main features:
- Work without limits. Stop worrying about file size or inbox space. Just add a link to any file or folder in your Dropbox, and anyone can access it without installing special software.
- Eliminate distractions. Accessing your Dropbox right in Gmail means no more jumping back and forth between apps. And shared links always point to the latest versions, so there’s no need to update email threads when files are updated.
- Centralize everything. Tired of having to track down work? The Gmail add-on lets you easily save files from your email to Dropbox, so you can keep all your work in one place.
Dropbox add-on for Gmail is now available on the G Suite Marketplace at this link.
