Dropbox unveils a brand-new design and user experience for its desktop app

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

"For instance, the redesigned desktop app is all about collaboration; you'll be able to modify folders on a shared Dropbox account with to-do lists, a history on file activities, and "@mentions", so you can tell co-workers which files need attention. With the launch of a new desktop app, Dropbox wants to reposition itself as the centre of your workplace.

Files themselves are increasingly a relic of the past as more and more companies move onto cloud-based office productivity systems like Office 365 or G Suite. If the work is in a project using something like Atlassian's Jira software, you can use that as well.

Along with Google Docs, Dropbox is also now integrated with Slack, so you can easily message team members on a project. Other apps, like Slack, now work better and Dropbox even lets you share files directly to your Slack channels from within the app.

"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. You can even view AutoCAD files inside a Dropbox file viewer, even if you don't have AutoCAD installed.

"We're focused on removing the friction from that experience, pulling everything together in a way that nobody has done before", Houston said in the statement.

PAUL POGBA will stay at Manchester United this summer with the club set to reject any bids from Real Madrid or Juventus . And according to The Sun's sources inside Old Trafford, United are "confident" on closing some deals before June's out.

An overview of the new design for Dropbox's desktop application. 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 tool sometimes integrates with other services.

The new look for Dropbox puts it at the center of all your essential tools, including things like Microsoft Word, Slack, Trello, etc. For example, comments on Google Docs in Dropbox aren't visible within Google Docs' mechanism for conversing about a document.

"And this is just the first step", the company says.
