After resting for six months in the beta phase, Dropbox officially launched its collaborative editing software. The software is pretty much similar to what we are used to in Google Docs. Paper from Dropbox is a minimalist service that allows users to edit documents. In addition to this, it also offers conversational aspects for collaborative projects. Let's dive in to see some more details on the new Paper software from Dropbox.

Paper By Dropbox Allows Users To Work Collaboratively On A Single Project

Paper from Dropbox is a neat addition that operates as a single project and allows users to revise and review shared pieces. The software also comes with an image gallery feature, a notification system that works on both iOS and the web version of the service. In addition to this, the advanced search functionality allows you to find files and comments.

Moreover, they will be notified of the changes made by in the new version. According to Dropbox, the software supports 21 languages and similar support for mobile apps will arrive soon. Other than this, offline workspace support for mobile is also coming soon.


Users working with just 128 GB of hard drive space can easily comb through terabytes of files to find exactly what they need— right from Windows File Explorer or macOS Finder. Now, they won't need to take extra steps—like switching to a web browser— just to view files. And whenever they need to access files stored in the cloud, users can download them with a quick double click.


Apart from this, the company also announced a new Dropbox Business account called Smart Sync. This feature basically allows users with low disk space to see files stored on the cloud storage files and folders on their desktops. Lastly, the company also announced new prices for its business customers. The Standard plan now costs $12.50 per month for a single user and packs 2TB of storage capacity along with collaborative tools. The $20 Advanced plan further adds administration features. If you're interested, Paper is available on the App Store for free, so do check it out if you haven't already.
