When the first anniversary of the launch of the Extensions in Dropbox is about to be completed, whose main objective is that users can use favorite third-party tools in Dropbox when they are working with files and documents that they have hosted in their own service, now Dropbox arrives and reinforces the main objective by doubling the number of extensions with the launch of 13 new and updated partner applications.
As the company explains, users will now be able to attach files in messages to Gmail, Facebook WorkPlace, Microsoft Teams, Outlook, WhatsApp and Line Works (the business version of the LINE messaging platform).
There is also a new partnership with Vimeo to streamline the workflow with comments and to distribute videos. With Clipchamp or WeVideo you can create, edit and publish videos. And you can also bring media files to Canva before before saving your finished work in Dropbox.
In addition, it enables simplification of expense tracking by sending scanned receipts to Freshbook, tracking file interactions with DocSend, and ultimately signing and certifying documents with Notarize.
More extensions will come along the way
Dropbox has more ambitious plans for its Extensions platform. In this regard, it announces that they will open the platform to accommodate more associated applications, further improving the workflow with files, in addition to adding support for additional languages in 2020.
The new extensions are already available from today on all Dropbox plans, in which you are invited to try them especially in the new desktop application, highlighting the ability to suggest extensions once a specific file is selected.
There is no doubt that having the tools in one place helps a lot in the workflow, avoiding the need to alternate between different tools when working with files.
