Dropbox Receives 1 Billion Uploads A Day Across 500 Million Devices

[MWC 2013] We know many of you, like us, use Dropbox on a regular basis in order to share files either with yourselves or with others and today, the company is announcing its users upload 1 billion files on a daily basis.

Today’s news came from Dropbox Chief Executive Drew Houston himself during Mobile World Congress where not only did he drop that bombshell of a statistic, but he also announced 100 million users access Dropbox with 500 million devices. Considering the service debuted only six years ago, those are very impressive numbers and shows just how dominant Dropbox is in their space.

Houston also announced Dropbox is looking to add more features to its service, one of which is a way to better deal with its users who access Dropbox for both their work and personal lives, as well as the concept of a family plan. The concept of a family plan is one we could see being beneficial for families who wish to share photos, videos or other documents privately to other family members, and designating a work account and a personal account is a feature I’m sure many Dropbox users would sign up for immediately.
