Dropbox has today announced it has entered a partnership with Microsoft to integrate their cloud storage solution more tightly within the Microsoft Office apps suite of software.
Allowing the 35 billion Office documents, spreadsheets, and presentations that are currently stored in the cloud via Dropbox by its users, to be accessed with ease from Office apps on both Android and iOS.
The new partnership will mean that Dropbox customers and Office app users will soon be able to access their Dropbox documents directly from Office applications, and edit Office files from the Dropbox application. Dropbox explains :
“We know that much of the world relies on a combination of Dropbox and Microsoft Office to get work done. In fact, Dropbox is home to over 35 billion Office documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. That’s why we’re partnering with Microsoft to help you do more on your phones, tablets, and the web. Soon you’ll be able to access your Dropbox directly from Office apps, and edit Office files from the Dropbox app.
Next year we’ll be extending these features to the web by adding integrations between the Dropbox website and Office Online. We’ll also be releasing a Dropbox app for Windows Phone and Windows tablet users in the coming months.”
