Facebook is quietly introducing a new feature that lets you share Dropbox files directly within Facebook Messenger.
The new feature was announced with a simple post on the Messenger Facebook page. It allows you to quickly share any Dropbox files, photos and videos directly from within the messaging app, without having to even copy/paste a link.
If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:
Make sure you have installed the Dropbox app on your phone and then tap on the More button (that’s the “…” button) within any conversation thread to start sharing photos, videos and any other Dropbox file via Messenger.
This is one more new integration coming to Messenger, clearly showing the development path Facebook has chosen to follow for its messaging app.
Dropbox Is One Of The Leading Cloud Storage Service Out There
Millions of individuals and businesses are using already using Dropbox and it makes perfect sense that Facebook wanted to integrate it within Messenger, the goal being, of course, to bring one more business and customer service capacity to the messaging app.
Without it being mentioned anywhere, this is obviously a feature that would work well on Facebook at Work. This new feature has started rolling out yesterday and should be available more broadly over the coming weeks.
