Dropbox the online cloud backup and sharing service has unveiled a new feature of its service in the form of Links. Dropbox CEO Drew Houston and Product Manager Ivan Kirigin demonstrated the new Links feature to the TechCrunch team last week, and now the new Links feature can now be used by Dropbox users to share files in a snap. Either large videos or collections of smaller files.
To start using the new features simple login to dropbox.com, and just select “Get link” for a file or folder in your Dropbox. On mobile, open the file and press the link icon in the bottom left corner. Dropbox explains:
“Now you can make links to files or folders in your Dropbox. Quickly share your photos, docs, and videos with friends and colleagues — even if they don’t have Dropbox!
When you create a link, your photos, videos, and even documents are displayed in a gorgeous full-browser view. Your friends and family can simply follow your links to view photos and instantly watch home videos online. Even your presentations look great without anyone having to download and open them separately.”
