New Dropbox support

Two weeks ago we announced a partnership with Dropbox to make it easier for Dropbox users to use Office on their phones and tablets. Since then we shipped updated apps on iOS to enable a seamless connection between Dropbox and Office for easy access, editing and sharing—right from Word, PowerPoint and Excel apps.

With today’s update you’ll get the same integration in Office Mobile for Android phone, including the ability to:

  • Add Dropbox as an online storage location.
  • Browse your files on Dropbox from your Office Mobile app for Android phones.
  • Use Office Mobile app for Android phones to edit your Dropbox files, and automatically save them back to Dropbox.
  • Share your files, right from Office Mobile for Android phones.
