Searching for documents will be easier in the new application, which will show local files, cloud documents, and other corporate data in a single view. In addition, Dropbox has partnered with video-conferencing provider Zoom so you can schedule and join Zoom meetings inside Dropbox.

Over the last couple of years, Dropbox has been developing and releasing new API integrations.

Along with Google Docs, Dropbox is also now integrated with Slack, so you can easily message team members on a project.

Dropbox users can link up their account to Slack and Zoom so that people handling files can stay on the same window to talk with colleagues about what they're working on - #channels and @mentions have been incorporated into sharing modes of the app to great effect.

Dropbox's overhauled app is a hub encompassing files, communication, group to-do lists and more.

The firm has also upgraded its search experience so a search run through Dropbox searches through all your content.

The changes are a bigger deal for the company's paid customers, who tend to be businesses and rely on Dropbox to store and share files for employees.

The "new Dropbox", is a platform, the company says, you don't need to leave.

"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. We can now see where this is going with the updated Dropbox service taking things a step further. 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. And Dropbox users will be able to tag co-workers when uploading or creating files within Dropbox, assigning follow-up tasks or reminders. Powerpoint documents can be edited right inside a Google editor and all changes will be saved on Dropbox. Other features will be rolling out to users over the next few weeks, the company said.
