Here are the latest news about DropBox:

31.08.17 Dropbox Paper gets document previews


Dropbox updated its collaboration tool Paper. Now users are able to create folders on their mobile devices and move Paper documents into them; they can now delete or archive their Paper documents on their phones; finally, users can now preview Paper documents before opening them. Dropbox is also giving developers a way to create or edit Paper documents in their own apps, which is a move that will potentially move the product outside of the bounds of the traditional Dropbox experience. Paper is increasingly popular with designers. It basically turns the process of designing and building a product spec into a living, breathing flow of information online. So we may assume that Dropbox gets more collaborative than alternatives


2017 Dropbox updated admin panel for Business users


Dropbox is adding more features to its admin dashboard, which is part of its larger AdminX initiative. With the new AdminX, Dropbox hopes to provide a better user experience to the admins who provision accounts and set controls over who can access what. The first thing the company did was to redesign the admin console to make it simpler to use. To improve security, Dropbox is also enabling admins to manage the amount of time employees can stay logged in and access files with new web session control features. It’s also allowing admins to specify certain teams with subdomain verification. By linking certain accounts or users to a subdomain, admins can better control who can access an enterprise’s Dropbox account.


2017 Dropbox launched collaboration app Paper globally in 21 languages


Dropbox is rolling out its note-collaboration app Paper globally localized into 21 languages. It also gets some new tools that allow users to automatically generate presentations and run them through Paper in their browsers.  Paper came out in a closed beta in the second quarter last year, and then opened as a public beta in the third quarter. As it’s inched closer to launch, both Google and Salesforce in some ways have thrown their weight behind collaborative tools in a similar vein to Paper. Salesforce bought Quip for $750 million late last year. While Paper was already competing with Quip in some ways, Salesforce’s major acquisition of the company signaled that it was quickly looking to broaden its enterprise toolkit. That means that Dropbox will likely come more into direct competition in this space with Salesforce, which may be able to throw more resources at the problem than Dropbox can. For Dropbox, the hope is that its strategy of religiously tracking user behavior will be part of the edge that keeps them ahead of those larger companies.


2016 Dropbox adds PDF signing, iMessage integrations


Dropbox is updating its iOS app with few new features that should help it continue to have a toehold within larger companies. The first update is PDF signing, which allows users to open PDF files right from their mobile devices and insert signatures and text into them. Another update Dropbox is getting today is an integration with iMessage - rich file-sharing within iMessage that includes previews and the like for its users. Besides, the new lock-screen widget will give users the ability to do the most common actions you might find in a Dropbox app from the lock screen. Tapping on one of the functions will go straight to an operation within Dropbox.


2016 Dropbox adds a new dashboard for IT admins


Cloud storage service Dropbox unveiled AdminX, a new dashboard aimed at IT admins to better tailor and control their companies’ files and users on Dropbox Business accounts. Dropbox says that AdminX has been an internal initiative for a year already: and the premise is simple. While there have been admin tools on Dropbox Business ever since the product was launched, these have not seen much use. So taking a page from its own consumerization book, Dropbox has reimagined them with more intuition and simpler interfaces. At the same time, the company is preparing to launch yet more services that take it beyond basic storage: soon it plans to launch mobile device management as part of the AdminX console so that admins can use Dropbox to control not just Dropbox-based files but actual devices.
