Google Docs, Sheets, Slides now work in Dropbox

Google has announced that G Suite users with a Dropbox Business subscription can now work on Google Docs, Sheets and Slides directly from the cloud storage. With this beta release, when users are signed in to both their Google and Dropbox accounts, they can create and store Docs, Sheets and Slides files in any Dropbox folder, alongside traditional files.

You can start a shared Docs, Sheets or Slides file right from dropbox.com or from apps on Windows and Mac and have it stored in Dropbox. When you open files, you’ll be taken straight to familiar Google editors within Dropbox. You can also open .docx, .xlsx or .pptx files from Dropbox in Docs, Sheets or Slides and save them back to Dropbox in their original format.

Adding a Docs, Sheets or Slides file to a shared Dropbox folder will automatically grant members access. You can also share files on a one-off basis without adding it to a shared folder by inviting people from Dropbox or creating a shareable link. Whether sharing files directly from Dropbox or with a link, you can set edit or view-only access. You’ll also have the option to set permissions to team only when sharing within your organisation or anyone when sharing files outside your organisation.

Docs, Sheets and Slides files will show up when searching in Dropbox including results from the content within your Docs, Sheets and Slides in addition to file names. You’ll be notified of any comments or edits made on your Docs, Sheets and Slides files in your Dropbox notifications, so you can easily stay on top of what’s happening with your files.
