Microsoft Office and Dropbox integration will boost productivity and collaboration.
Dropbox and Microsoft have announced a strategic partnership to help people work more effectively. The two industry-leading companies are teaming up to integrate their services for collaborationÃ‚Â across Dropbox and Microsoft Office on phones, tablets and the Web.
With data and mobile usage exploding globally,Ã‚Â millions of peopleÃ‚Â are turningÃ‚Â to Dropbox andÃ‚Â Office to access, manage and collaborate on theirÃ‚Â filesÃ‚Â from anywhere,Ã‚Â anytime. Over 1.2 billion people use Office to get work done, and Dropbox has become home to more than 35 billion Office files.
“In our mobile-first and cloud-first world, people need easier ways to create, share and collaborate regardless of their device or platform,” said Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft.
“Together, Microsoft and Dropbox will provide our shared customers with flexible tools that put them at the center for the way they live and work today.”
“People around the world have embraced Office and Dropbox to empower the way they live and work today,” said Drew Houston, CEO and co-founder of Dropbox.
“Our partnership with Microsoft will make it easier than ever to collaborate seamlessly across these platforms, giving people the freedom to get more done.”
This partnership will enable people at work, homeÃ‚Â and school to easily collaborateÃ‚Â onÃ‚Â documents, spreadsheets and presentations. These capabilities will first be available from withinÃ‚Â the Dropbox and Office apps on tablets and phones, and willÃ‚Â soon be accessible via the Web.
Dropbox and Microsoft users canÃ‚Â now do the following:
Access Dropbox from Office apps to get to their files and folders faster.
Edit Office filesÃ‚Â directlyÃ‚Â from Dropbox and sync them across devices.
Share new or edited filesÃ‚Â from the Office apps using simple Dropbox sharing functionality.
The functionality will first be included in the next updates to the Office apps for iOS and Android, coming in the next few weeks. The Web integrations between the Dropbox website and Office Online will be available in the first half of 2015. Dropbox will also make its application available on the Windows Phone and Windows tablet platforms in the coming months.
