Dropbox for Gmail extension


Bring Dropbox to your Gmail account


Published on May 06, 2015

We're always looking for new ways to make Dropbox work better with the tools you use every day. For many of you, Gmail is one of those tools, helping you share information and stay connected. That's why we recently built an extension for your Chrome browser that lets you attach Dropbox files right from your Gmail account. Today, we have a new version with improvements based on feedback from early users. The Dropbox for Gmail extension makes attaching and viewing files simpler and more powerful:

  • Easily send large files. Just click the Dropbox icon in the compose window, select files or folders, and click Insert Link(s). No waiting for uploads to complete, no file size limit, and no eating up space in your inbox.
  • Say goodbye to zip files. Attach folders and multiple files instantly, without having to zip files up.
  • Send files to anyone. Even if they don’t have Dropbox or the extension, recipients can see and download the attachments you send them.
  • Quickly save files sent to you. Add files to your Dropbox with a click so you can access them anywhere.

Get started today by downloading the Dropbox for Gmail extension from the Chrome Web Store. If you already have the extension installed, you'll receive the update automatically. You'll also notice that you can now select multiple files, as well as folders, when you share. We'd love to know what you think — what you like, what you don't, and what you wish it could do.
