Dropbox Add-on for Gmail

This tool integrates Dropbox and Gmail, and introduces the new partnership between the two. With the Dropbox add-on for Gmail, you’ll be able to view, store, and share any file—from the smallest doc to the largest video—without leaving your inbox. This integration offers a cross-browser, cross-platform addition to the existing Dropbox for Gmail extension for Chrome. This new add-on will work with any browser, as well as the Gmail app for Android and—coming soon—iOS. 

With the Dropbox Add-on for Gmail, you can: 
  • View, save, and share any Dropbox file – big or small, including photos, videos, presentations, docs, project work, and more – from the Dropbox Add-on for Gmail. 
  • Easily find and sync your Dropbox files in Gmail anytime, on any browser or device. 

Pick it up at the G Suite Marketplace.
