Google and Dropbox work together to ensure that you no longer have to think about where all of your files are stored. Simply download Dropbox for the Gmail add-on, and everything will be stored in the cloud for easy sharing and fewer concerns about storage limits.
If you're a Gmail and Dropbox user, it's easier to keep all of your files in one place thanks to a new Dropbox add-in for Gmail. [1
Chrome users can already enjoy Dropbox for Gmail extension, but this new add-in works "cross browser, cross platform," which means you can use your favorite browser and even take advantage of it in the Gmail app for Android and (finally) iOS.
The benefits of this integration, as Dropbox sees, is the removal of concern for file sizes and inbox space, which Google limits to 15GB before you start paying. Sharing files can be done by sharing a Dropbox link instead of adding an attachment or transferring files to Google Drive.
This also works in reverse format. If you receive an email with attached files, they can be stored in Dropbox, instead of deciding where to save locally or using Drive Space. Nor is it necessary to leave Gmail to access Dropbox anymore, as most tasks can now be done from the Gmail interface.
Best Cloud Storage for Business
To try it, Dropbox for Gmail add-on may be available for download from the G Suite Marketplace. Of the three reviews submitted so far, two have only granted one of five stars due to authentication issues or no Dropbox functionality that appears in Firefox. There also seems to be a shortage of instructions available to help you.
When that is the case, it may be worth waiting a couple of days to allow Dropbox to train kinks before installing.
