G Suite catches up to Office 365 with planned Dropbox integration

Google's Slack Competitor Hangouts Chat Launches For Businesses Using G Suite

The plan is that later in the year, G Suite customers will benefit from full integration with Dropbox, giving users the ability to create (as well as edit) Google Docs, Sheets and Slides files within Dropbox.

It is also available on a variety of operating systems, such as Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android.

Dropbox, which helped make cloud storage popular only to be surpassed by platforms such as Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive, announced Friday morning it will integrate with Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Hangouts and Gmail.

Ritcha Ranjan, director of product management at Google Cloud, said that the goal of the partnership on Google's end is to make G Suite more accessible to users, regardless of the other platforms they're using. The platform will support bots, as many as 28 languages at the moment, and chat rooms that can support as many as 8,000 users.

Centralized content. Dropbox users will be able to create, open, edit, save, and share Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides directly from Dropbox.

And the Hangouts Chat integration will facilitate searching for, and sharing, Dropbox files within a hangout.

"Chat also comes equipped with 25 bots to help speed up workflows, ranging from finance and human resources to CRM, project management and more", Johnston said. Google shared the news in a blog entry. Similarly, a Meet bot uses Google Calendar to schedule meetings for the user. And because it will be available at no cost for G Suite subscribers, the close integration of the apps within the suite might be enough to persuade business to opt for Hangouts Chat. Also, Google says almost two dozen vendors have already built bots for Hangouts Chat.

"In addition, the Gmail add-on will allow you to display creation, modification, and last-accessed dates for linked files, while the Hangouts integration will add previews for linked files directly to your chats", the release said.
