Introducing new product experiences for distributed teams and creatives
Published on September 28, 2021
The sudden shift to remote work accelerated existing trends like the rise of the creator and freelancer economies, expansion of distributed teams, and the increased use of rich media and video files. As more work is done in more places using more types of files, distributed teams and creatives need solutions that allow them to work anytime, from anywhere, across all their workflows. That’s why we’re introducing three new product experiences that help you do more with your content in Dropbox.*
Communicate clearly and save time with Dropbox Capture
For many, remote work has meant endless hours of video meetings, constant chat messages, and long emails in place of the kind of dynamic communication that comes from being in the same room. Customers who work across time zones have told us they need new ways to provide context for their content without adding more meetings and emails.
Dropbox Capture is an all-in-one visual communication tool that helps team members share their work and ideas asynchronously.
- Replace lengthy emails and documents with short video messages to communicate with your team in less time
- Bring clarity to your message by visually presenting your work through easy-to-take screen recordings, GIFs, and screenshots
- Convey context and connect more deeply with personalized messages
- Free up your calendar and avoid impossible meeting scheduling across time zones by recording and sharing status updates and work-in-progress with your team
Today, Capture is in beta across personal and business plans and can be accessed at dropbox.com/capture
"I often struggle with time zones at my company because we operate internationally. It’s hard to share ideas, because there’s only so much you can get across over written messages. With Dropbox Capture, you can actually show the person what you're looking at, point things out, and convey it with your own voice.”—Mackenzie Davis, a Dropbox customer in the consulting industry
Simplify video feedback with Dropbox Replay
Over the past two years, we’ve communicated over video more than ever. Billions of video files are added to Dropbox each year. And between 2019 and 2020, there was a nearly 50% increase in the number of video editing files added to Dropbox.
Meanwhile, getting sign off on video content has become more difficult when collaborators are working remotely. Large files, different video formats, and low bandwidth all add to the complexity. Teams tell us they need a tool to gather actionable feedback in one place so they can respond faster.
Dropbox Replay is a video collaboration tool that makes it easier to collect, manage, and respond to feedback, all in one place.
- Easily share videos with your teammates so they don’t need to download the video or take separate notes in an email or a doc to provide feedback
- Leave frame-accurate comments and annotations, even if you don’t have a Dropbox account
- Avoid having to search email and chat threads from different collaborators—all feedback is documented in Replay
- Bring the viewing room experience to life virtually through the Live Review feature, and bypass choppy playback on video calls
- Confidently manage and track progress on all video projects
Replay is coming in beta soon. To join the waitlist, apply by signing up at experience.dropbox.com/form/replay-sign-up.
