Dropbox heads to your living room.
The cloud storage service launched a new app for Xbox One on Monday, which lets you access your photos, videos, and other files right on your TV. Dropbox said it was the first cloud storage provider to release a Universal Windows app for Microsoft’s game console.
The new Xbox One app offers all of the same features that are available through the Dropbox mobile app. You can manage and share files on multiple devices, comment on documents, etc. The user interface is optimized for the big screen in your living room, allowing you to manage all your files using a gamepad or media remote.
The app should also make it easy to show off photos and videos from your last vacation at your next family reunion. You can stream videos from your Dropbox account directly to your TV without having to download the files, which should save you time and space on your hard drive.
You can also automatically upload screenshots and photos from Kinect to Dropbox.
The free app is available for download from the Xbox Store.
Meanwhile, Dropbox updated its iOS app earlier this fall with new features, including the ability to sign PDFs from within the software. The feature means that users won’t need to download files to their iPhones or iPads before signing them. When signing from the app, the modified file is saved and ready to be returned.
Additionally, Dropbox users can now send and receive files in iMessage, thanks to iOS 10, and can add a Dropbox widget to the iOS 10 lock screen so they can quickly view, create, and download files from. this page.
