Microsoft Office Turns to the Cloud
Thanks to the evolution of mobile devices users are able to bring their work on the go with them.
The new partnership will provide users with several advantages. Users will now have the ability to access Dropbox from within their Office apps as well as edit Office files directly from within Dropbox and sync them across devices and share new or edited files from Office apps using Dropbox functionality.
The new functionality will be included in Office’s mobile apps for iOS and Android in the next few weeks followed by integrations for desktop and Windows Phone and Tablet users coming in the following months.
“In our mobile-first and cloud-first world, people need easier ways to create, share and collaborate regardless of their device or platform,” said Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft. “Together, Microsoft and Dropbox will provide our shared customers with flexible tools that put them at the center for the way they live and work today.”
