Dropbox is a great cloud storage service if you’re looking for a way to backup and sync your files and folders across multiple platforms. However given that there are plenty of other online services that offer similar functionality, such as iCloud, OneDrive, and Google Drive, just to name a few, Dropbox certainly needs to set itself apart.

One of the ways the company is hoping to do that is with the launch of a new feature called Extensions. This is a feature which will basically provide users with better integration with third-party apps and services, with the idea being that you’ll be able to perform a variety of tasks all within Dropbox itself without having to download files, leave the app, and so on.

According to Dropbox, “These no-fuss workflows are only possible because we’ve built deep product partnerships with leading productivity companies that include Adobe, Autodesk, DocuSign, Vimeo, airSlate, HelloSign, Nitro, Smallpdf, and Pixlr. We want users to have the ability to move fluidly from one task to the next without breaking their flow. It should be just as easy to use a combination of tools and apps as it is to use the same suite of tools from a legacy provider.”

The feature is expected to be available come 27th of November, so if you’re a Dropbox user who uses the service more than just a cloud storage/backup service, perhaps the new Extensions feature might be of use to you.
