Dropbox works with many apps, where you can choose to save or pull files directly from Dropbox without having to open an app. An example would be Gmail where users can pull files from Dropbox to add as an attachment in emails. Now it looks like the opposite is true, where Dropbox can now work with other apps.

Dropbox has announced that they are launching a new feature called Extensions. If this sounds familiar, it is because earlier this month the company launched a preview of it and now it looks like the feature is live. Basically the idea of Extensions is where on Dropbox’s website, you can choose to open your files directly into a web app of your choice (assuming that it is supported).

According to the company, “Extensions let you use the tools you already love while keeping everything organized, in sync, and in one place—Dropbox. Just like the right-click menu in Windows Explorer or macOS Finder, Extensions let you open files from dropbox.com in the web-based app of your choice. Starting today, you’ll see an “Open with” menu next to popular file types like PDFs, DWGs, Word docs, videos, and images.”

Right now Extensions will work with various apps such as Adobe, DocuSign, HelloSign, Autodesk, Nitro, airSlaste, HelloFax, Pixlr, and Vimeo, and we expect that there will be more support added in the future.
