Dropbox and Google Cloud partner to deliver cross-platform integrations

Filed under: Business

Collaboration will provide users with native access to Dropbox and G Suite functionality

SAN FRANCISCO, Mar. 1, 2018 — Dropbox today announced a partnership with Google Cloud to deliver a more unified home for work. Working with Google Cloud, Dropbox plans to develop a series of cross-platform integrations that connect G Suite cloud productivity tools and content (Gmail, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Hangouts) with its global collaboration platform. These integrations will be made accessible for all Dropbox users. As a result:

  • Users will be able to create, open, and edit Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides files that live in Dropbox. 
  • From within Dropbox, users will have the option to open and edit compatible files directly in Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides. 
  • Dropbox Business administrators will be able to manage Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides files just like any other content that lives in Dropbox. 


“We want to make it easy for our users to work across devices with the tools they love,” said Tony Lee, VP of Engineering at Dropbox. “This partnership with Google Cloud is one more way we're creating a unified home for content and the conversations around it. We're excited to work with Google to break down silos and centralize the information teams rely on every day.”    


“Our goal is to make G Suite accessible no matter what tools you bring to work, and these integrations help our shared customers better collaborate in the tools they use every day,” said Ritcha Ranjan, Director, Product Management at Google Cloud. “Working with Dropbox to make our apps work better together helps our customers focus their time on work that matters.” 


Beyond Docs and Files 

Dropbox will develop additional native G Suite integrations with Gmail and Hangouts Chat, helping teams keep project content connected to the conversations around it:  

  • New Dropbox for Gmail Add-Ons: Users will be able to select and generate Dropbox file links from directly within Gmail. In addition, users can choose to see metadata on Dropbox content in Gmail including date created, last saved, and last accessed.  
  • New Dropbox and Google Hangouts Chat Integration: The integration will allow users to search for, share, and preview Dropbox files in Google Hangouts.


These integrations are expected to be available starting in the second half of 2018. To read more on the partnership between Dropbox and Google Cloud please visit please visit our blog
