Microsoft brings in great new additions with Dropbox app for Windows 10

Dropbox has introduced its new app specifically for Windows 10 devices which should let you do a lot more than you could with the older version of the app.

The new app will work in all Microsoft platforms running Windows 10 and will let you unlock it through face recognition, use a quick search option to find what you're looking for and access your recent files with just a click.

“Microsoft is excited to partner with Dropbox to bring more cloud storage and productivity services to Windows 10 across PC and tablets. With the arrival of Dropbox, Windows 10 fans have easy and convenient access to photos, documents, and files anytime, anywhere,” said Steve Guggenheimer, Corporate Vice President of Developer Platform & Evangelism and Chief Evangelist at Microsoft.

Here’s a checklist of what all things you can do with your new Dropbox app:

Drag & drop: Now you can easily move files from your Windows folders to the app by simply clicking on them and dragging them into the app. You can also drag files between the folders inside the app.

Quick search: By simply typing in what you're looking for; you'll be able to access anything you need without having to bother about the search icon.

Sharing folders: You will now be able to accept shared folder invitations by setting up interactive notifications. You won't even need to open the app to accept such requests.

Access recent files: Just by right-clicking the Dropbox app icon in your taskbar, you will be able to view and access your recent files that were uploaded on the app. You will also be able to add comments on your files and can even invite others to do so using @mentions tag.

The news comes not long after Dropbox allowed iPhone and iPad users to edit their PDF files in its iOS app, soon after unveiling a new partnership with Adobe to make uploading and working with PDFs on Dropbox simpler and faster.
