Google And Dropbox Partnership Allows Google Documents To Be Edited In Cloud Service

The Dropbox customers are free to participate in open beta system which allows them to prepare slides, sheets and documents.

In March 2018, Google and Dropbox officially announced that both the platforms would join hands to enable better functioning of the Gmail, Sheets, Slides and Documents. However, it was not until September 2018, that the companies entered into an agreement. Finally on April 9, 2019, both the platforms made it possible for the customers of Dropbox to involve in the open beta system to make Google Slides, Documents and Sheets on the cloud based platform.

The working of the Google documents in the Dropbox platform is similar to the Microsoft Documents operating on the cloud based platform. When the user is in the web view mode of the platform, pressing the “create new file” will then enlist the option of documents, sheets and slides. Now the platform assuming that the user has logged in with Google account will display options of Google Slides, Documents and Sheets. The Google files which have been created on the Dropbox platform will be shown on the PC assuming the fact that the user has installed the app there. Furthermore, it allows the users to search the files using the file name and text.

The sharing tools present on the Dropbox platform are currently integrated in Google Documents. This partnership of both the companies is based on the fact that instead of dividing the users on the basis of their choice, both the platforms must join hands to gather the users of Google and Dropbox to serve the best software experience.
