Do you use Facebook Messenger app and Dropbox regularly? If so, you may be happy to know that it is now easier to share your Dropbox files (photos, videos and others) directly from your Messenger app.
To be able to use this feature, you will have to tap on the More button when on the Messenger app for Android or iOS from where you will see Dropbox as an available source, tap on that to get started. You will need to have the Dropbox app installed on your phone for you to be able to share any file from your Dropbox without leaving the Messenger app.
“Videos and images—including animated GIFs—will be displayed directly in your chats. For everything else, tapping Open will bring recipients to the Dropbox mobile app, where they can preview and save files. It’s a quick, simple way to share vacation snapshots, home movies, and laugh-worthy memes with any of the 900 million people using Messenger—whether they’re Facebook friends or not.”
“We want people to communicate just the way they want to on Messenger, with everyone they care about,” said Stan Chudnovsky, head of product for Messenger. “Giving our users the ability to share their Dropbox videos and images in Messenger threads with just a few taps will help them bring more style and personality to those conversations.”
To be able to enjoy this new feature, you will have to update your Messenger and Dropbox apps for Android and iOS.
