Dropdox posted on their blog on Tuesday  that soonest users would be able to access their Dropbox files right from the office app and edit MS files from Dropbox apps. This new partnership app would be made available in few weeks for both Android and iOS users.

And now, the benefit of it is that whenever you edit your file on Dropbox mobile app, the change made will be auto-synched across your entire device. This simply means you don’t necessarily need your computer at all time to finish your file document assignment once it’s saved on your Dropbox account. You can always go ahead and finish it up on mobile, do the editing, proofread, and the like and it will be auto-synched on your entire device.

For those that uses Dropbox for business, before they can use it they would have to have an Office 365 subscription so that the advantage of Dropbox-Microsft partnering together would be extend to their extreme in the same wise.

 Satya Nadella (Microsoft CEO) said “In our mobile-first and cloud-first world, people need easier ways to create, share and collaborate regardless of their device or platform. Together, Microsoft and Dropbox will provide our shared customers with flexible tools that put them at the centre for the way they live and work today”.

Since this latest development by Dropbox and Microsoft works on mobile (iOS and Android device for now), Dropbox is as well planning to release Dropbox app for both Windows phone and Windows tablet users in subsequent months. And probably by next year, this service would be extended to both Dropbox official website and Microsoft Office online in the same wise.
