Microsoft and Dropbox Announce Collaboration

Posted by at 7:44 am on November 4, 2014

Microsoft and Dropbox today announced a new partnership that will make it easier for smartphone and tablet owners to remain productive.

They have agreed to integrate Office 365 and Dropbox for mobile and online document creation and storage. Android and iOS users will be able to access Dropbox from Office apps to get to their files and folders; edit Office files directly from Dropbox and sync them across devices; and share new or edited files from the Office apps using Dropbox sharing tools.

Microsoft said it will update Office for Android and iOS with these new features over the coming weeks. Online sharing between Office and Dropbox won’t arrive until early 2015. Interested users will need both an Office and a Dropbox account in order to access these tools.

Dropbox will also make its application available on the Windows Phone and Windows tablet platforms in the coming months.
