Dropbox is going to roll out integrations with certain tools such as Adobe Premiere Rush, Otter.ai, Simon Says, Videomenthe, Vidrovr and Curio by GrayMeta, report ZDNet. According to Dropbox, the users of these applications constitute one of the most active user groups of the service.

Announcements had already been placed for integration with services such as Slack, Zoom and Atlassian, as well as Google G Suite. This allows users to use Google Docs, Sheets and Slides live in Dropbox. The most recent announcement therefore concerns a number of media services, the users of which form a group with more than a billion files in Dropbox in 2017 alone.

“With the rise of HD, 4K and 8K video, as well as online video services and podcasting, the need for faster and more efficient video and audio production workflows is growing every year,” says Dropbox in a blog post. “To continue to support our customers’ needs, we developed new integrations with your favourite video, audio and transcription tools. By allowing access to Dropbox files without leaving the application interface, these integrations help save time, stay on the same page with your team and complete projects faster”.

Integrated approach

Dropbox has been working on making multiple services compatible with the platform for some time now, in order to ultimately create a single environment in which users can complete all their activities. Files, tools and teams must come together in this environment. This was already taken a step forward last month with the presentation of a completely new UI and user experience on all platforms of the company, as well as the already mentioned integration of Slack, Atlassian, Zoom and the Google G Suite. An overview of the activities in a shared project was also part of the upgrade. In addition, a whole new mobile app was rolled out. The steps taken by the company fit in with a broader trend towards the integration of different applications and tools in a single work environment.
