Dropbox built Dropbox Paper to help fast-moving teams create collaborative docs and share important information. It’s a big part of how Dropbox is reimagining the way people work together. They originally launched Paper to a limited number of teams in private beta. And now they’re excited to open up the beta so anyone can sign up—without the waitlist. Plus, they have new Paper mobile apps for iOS and Android that you can use for on-the-go access.
Early Paper users have already created over a million docs and given Dropbox a ton of useful feedback. With that input, they’ve made improvements like enhanced tables and image galleries; desktop, web, and mobile notifications; and powerful search to help you quickly find the docs you need. And their new mobile apps let you get project updates, make edits, and respond to feedback—any time, anywhere.
Here are some of the ways users are keeping their teams in sync with Paper:
- Brainstorming ideas. Tackle big ideas, together in the same doc, at the same time—and use more than just words by embedding videos, images, and more.
- Capturing meeting notes. Connect your Google Calendar, and Paper can create a custom notes doc for your next meeting and automatically share it with attendees.
- Creating to-do’s. Start a checklist with just a few keystrokes, and assign tasks to others by simply adding “@” and a team member’s name.
Dropbox can’t wait for you to get started—join the beta today at dropbox.com/paper. Once you’ve signed up, be sure to download the mobile apps from the iOS App Store and Android Play Store. This is just the beginning for Dropbox Paper, so check back here for the latest news.
Update: The Paper mobile app for Android is now available to users worldwide. The iOS app is coming soon for users in the EU.
