Dropbox has a press event scheduled for April 9th, its expected to make a number of announcements, word about one of them seems to have slipped through. Apparently the cloud storage company has already started notifying its Dropbox for Business users that it is going to let them switch between business and personal accounts on all devices from next month. Currently users have to log in and out of each account, which is a bit of a hassle.
Actually the company had said back in November last year that it was working on supporting multiple accounts, so this doesn’t exactly come as a surprise. It has been gradually building up features particularly for business users, folks at The Verge have heard that on April 9th, Dropbox is also going to roll out new tools for administrators.
There’s increasing speculation these days that Dropbox is gunning for an IPO or initial public offering. If that is the case, it would make sense for the company to beef up its offering for businesses. They tend to be much more profitable than individual users, and if Dropbox is to ensure its growth as a public company, not only will it need steady revenue, it will also need a lot of green on its balance sheets.
