Dropbox is kicking off an open beta to test its integration with Google. Dropbox is making it easier for its users to work in the cloud by integrating Google’s office web apps with its cloud service.

More than a year after announcing a series of cross-platform integrations, Google and Dropbox have finally given a first glimpse of what a deep partnership between the two platforms will look like. Users who are signed into a Google G Suite account can now directly access Google Docs, Slides, and Sheets within Dropbox, enabling them to save content, search files, manage access, and more.

The duo first announced the collaboration last March, so this has been a long time coming. In the intervening months, other facets of the partnership have borne fruit, including a Dropbox add-on for Gmail and a Google Cloud Identity plugin that allows Dropbox admins to leverage Google login credentials for business accounts. But the biggest part of the tie-up is undoubtedly the open beta launch today that will bring G Suite content into Dropbox, allowing users to create, edit, save, and share Google-format documents, spreadsheets, and presentations directly from within Dropbox.

There are a few other hints: the top of the page where it usually tells you that all changes have been saved now says “saved to Dropbox.” But otherwise, you can create and edit G Suite files in the same way you would if you were going through Google Drive. Once you’re done with a document, it shows up in your Dropbox alongside any other files you have saved.

Billy Blau, Dropbox’s head of technology partnerships, said that more than 50 percent of Dropbox Business subscribers also use G Suite. “It really comes from the fact that we have a big overlap of customer bases,” he said. “We have hundreds of millions of users who have Gmail addresses and are also G Suite users.”
The integration is arriving first for Dropbox Business users with English-language support. During the open beta, users will need to opt-in to the feature here.
