Dropbox gets a makeover with updated desktop app, new Slack and Zoom integration

If you happen to prefer Dropbox as your (or your employer's) cloud storage solution of choice, you might've had fleeting thoughts about how hard it's been to navigate through its user interface - whether it's on mobile or on your desktop or laptop.

On the partnership front, Dropbox has formed native integrations with Slack, Zoom and Atlassian, creating integrated workflows between Dropbox and these services. The new Dropbox is attempting to simplify that.

The new Dropbox is integrated with other tools including Google's G Suite, Slack, and Zoom videoconferencing.

However, that is not widely available just yet, and is now only rolling out to early access users.

Dropbox users can opt in to the new desktop app, and company software administrators can choose to have their teams included.

Experimental Treatment Could Slow Down Type 1 Diabetes In High-Risk Individuals
Karen Addington, UK Chief Executive of type 1 diabetes research charity JDRF, said: "Type 1 diabetes can be tough". The trial was conducted by Type 1 Diabetes Trialnet, which researches strategies to delay or prevent T1D.

So, you can be working on a document or slide deck and share it over Slack or hit someone up over Zoom to collaborate.

The Dropbox interface on web, mobile, and desktop is also getting an overhaul; it promises to better organize all the content you have on Dropbox.

"We're focused on removing the friction from that experience, pulling everything together in a way that nobody has done before", Houston said in the statement. Dropbox Team admins can go a step further with the new link-up with Atlassian for work management.

Dropbox has offered a useful file-sync service for years, but it's got competition - Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive and Apple iCloud, all from tech giants that can build their services into the platforms they control.

Dropbox long has offered free accounts with a 2GB cap, but in March, it imposed a new limit: you could sync your Dropbox data on three devices maximum. For instance, users can start conversations and send files to Slack channels directly from Dropbox, and also share Dropbox files within Slack conversations. Other features will be rolling out to users over the next few weeks, the company said.
