The new Dropbox redesign turns the app into a productivity launchpad

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

New features are expected to roll out in the coming weeks, as well.

Dropbox's new app presents files as a project-based package.

While the company already has partnerships with Microsoft and Google that allow customers to use their programs, the goal ultimately is to get workers to do more in Dropbox itself.

In a statement, Dropbox Chief Executive Drew Houston said the new software was meant to let users work together on files without having to bounce between multiple windows. And that includes your regular files, cloud content, shortcuts, and even files that are only on the cloud and not actually stored on your computer.

Here's what you have to look forward to.

"Let's bring this experience into the 21st century, [transforming] from a folder full of files into a living teamwork space with all of your content", said Dropbox Chief Executive Drew Houston at a press event to announce the new effort.

Starting today, you'll be able to create, save, and share your Google Docs and Microsoft Office files from within Dropbox. The new Dropbox is attempting to simplify that. And when you need to speak with colleagues face-to-face, there's Zoom integration, too. In a single folder, for example, you can view not just the description of a project, but also action items, due dates and all sorts of documentation, regardless of the application you used to make them.

Dropbox also lets you do a lot more with shared folders now, like adding descriptions that will help teammates better understand what they're working on. That's fine if you have one laptop, one phone and one tablet, but as soon as you go beyond that, you'll need to pay for Dropbox or pick a different service.

The new client is now in public preview, and the company made it clear that it will still possible to use Dropbox the "old way", with the easy-to-understand Dropbox folder in Windows File Explorer. It will be a little while before the overhauled desktop client is available to everyone by default, but you can opt-in to early access right away.
