Meet the new Dropbox

Bring together your files, your tools and people with an all-new Dropbox experience, including a new desktop app.

A screenshot of the new Dropbox desktop app. The left sidebar lists your Dropbox team and personal folders, as well as any starred folders you may have. The middle pane shows a folder name and overview that describes the content of the folder. Below is a list of to-dos with @mentions, a pinned file and folders and the files and folders in the folder. The right detail pane shows a preview of a selected file, the people you’ve shared the file with as well as any comments and activity around the file.

The new desktop app is available through our early access programme.

Bring content together

Get work done by putting everything you need in the same place. Store traditional files, cloud content and web shortcuts alongside each other.

Embrace cloud content

Now you can create, organise and share Google Docs, Sheets and Slides content – as well as .docx, .xlsx and .pptx files – straight from Dropbox.

Create shortcuts

Save time by storing bookmarks to any web content – like project management boards or news articles – alongside all of your content in Dropbox.

Connect your tools

No more creating documents in one place, and having conversations about them in another. Now Dropbox integrates with Slack and Zoom to simplify work.

Will the new Dropbox desktop app change the way my files sync to my computer?
