Dropbox has launched Dropbox Extensions bringing new ways to work seamlessly in web-based apps while keeping everything organized in Dropbox. Extensions let you use the tools you already use while keeping everything organized, in sync, and in one place.
Just like the right-click menu in Windows Explorer or macOS Finder, Extensions let you open files from dropbox.com in the web-based app of your choice. There will be a new option ‘Open With’ menu next to popular file types like PDFs, DWGs, Word docs, videos, and images.
You can perform actions like signatures, sending faxes, edit documents, edit CAD drawings, capture video feedback, and Adjust images. Once you’re done working, your files will be saved back to Dropbox. The first batch of Extensions is available today in English, with support for more partner apps coming soon.
