If you are an Android user with an Android 4.0 device, you’re in for a treat as Dropbox for Android has recently been updated. If Dropbox’s cloud storage service is one that you use often, the app has been updated with a feature which offers “custom-tailored video streaming for ICS users”. What does this mean? In case it wasn’t obvious, this will now allow Android users to upload videos to their Dropbox accounts and stream it on their devices without having to download the entire thing.
Streaming will be possible over WiFi and mobile data networks, although using the latter might be a pretty quick way to reach your data cap. This will be great for phones with limited amount of storage and don’t have access to memory expansion like the Galaxy Nexus, not to mention this particular feature will probably make the Galaxy S3 a more attractive purchase since owners of the device will be given free 50GB worth of Dropbox storage for the next two years. The app is free for download so if you haven’t already downloaded/updated it, pop on over to the Google Play store for the details.
