There are plenty of cloud storage services at the moment, and unsurprisingly they all want you to use their services. This means that if you’re like most users and tend to mix and match different products and services, it can get pretty tricky and messy, where an example would be where if you wanted to sync your G Suite files with Dropbox.

The good news is that if you hate syncing them manually by dragging and dropping them, you’ll be pleased to learn that Dropbox has announced that they will be entering into a partnership with Google where Dropbox will be getting native G Suite integration. According to Dropbox, “Dropbox users will be able to create, open, edit, save, and share Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides directly from Dropbox. And when you’re working in Dropbox, you’ll be able to save Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides to your Dropbox account.”

This won’t be limited to just G Suite as Dropbox has also announced plans to integrate with Gmail and Google Hangouts Chat. “With them, you’ll be able to select files from your Dropbox account and send links directly from Gmail and Hangouts Chat. In addition, the Gmail add-on will allow you to display creation, modification, and last-accessed dates for linked files, while the Hangouts integration will add previews for linked files directly to your chats.”

So if you’re primarily a Dropbox user who happens to heavily utilize Google’s products and services, the integration makes sense and will be a lot more convenient than before, so do keep an eye out for.
