Doc previewsInstantly preview any Word document, PowerPoint presentation, or PDF in your Dropbox account, straight from your Android device. So instead of switching to another app to view a file, you can view it right from within Dropbox — complete with zooming and easy scrolling.
Dropbox for Business teams usually have a ton of files in their Dropbox accounts, so finding that one document you’re looking for isn’t always easy. That’s why we gave the search experience on Android a massive facelift — so you can get to your files even faster. Here’s what’s new:
Scoping of searches: Limit your search to either a specific folder or your entire Dropbox.
Track recent searches: Dropbox helps you stay organized by tracking your recent searches (both in a specific folder or your entire Dropbox).
Type-ahead suggestions: Save yourself a little bit of time or jog your memory with a list of real-time search suggestions as you type out your query.
Highlighting of search terms: To make sure you don’t miss a thing, Dropbox will highlight the letters within file or folder names as you type in your search.
This release also includes the ability to set view-only permissions on shared folders — available now for Dropbox for Business teams through our early access program — and more.The new version of Dropbox for Android will be rolling out in the Play Store over the next several hours — or if you’ve signed up for early releases in your Android device settings, you can download it from your device notifications now. Enjoy that extra boost of productivity!
