2015 - Dropbox to offer collaboration features to free users to keep up with OneDrive
Dropbox is launching a new feature called Dropbox Teams, which makes it easier for people to use their personal accounts at work. The feature will be available to Basic and Pro users over the next week. Here's how it works: Users can create a team folder to keep files in one place. Group members added to the team folder will have access to all the files within that folder. Anyone added to that team will have immediate access to everything, even if they're added later on. There's also an option to link your personal and work Dropbox accounts so that you can switch from one to the other without signing out. The new feature is aimed at smaller companies that may already use Dropbox but don't pay for Dropbox for Business, which offers more advanced features like more administrative and security controls such as two-factor authentication.
