Dropbox Adds Quick Preview Feature

Posted by at 3:32 pm on January 30, 2013

Cloud service Dropbox has announced a new platform feature, dubbed Quick Preview. The option lets people get a glimpse at the contents of files without having to open them in their native apps. Only some filetypes are being supported, such as DOC, DOCX, PowerPoint, and PDF; Excel is a notable omission.

So far, only the web and Android versions of Dropbox have been upgraded, and full web deployment may take several months.

The company has yet to say if its Mac or Windows apps will get the technology, but confirms that Quick Preview will appear on more phones and tablets.
