Dropbox this week released two new features for its Android app. Here are the details.
New Dropbox Android app comes with doc previews and enhanced search functionality.
Announced in a company blog post, the San Francisco-based cloud file sync-and-share company this week released two new features for its Android app.
The first new feature enables users to preview Word documents, PowerPoint presentations or PDFs from within the Dropbox platform. Now users no longer have to switch to another app to view a file.
But Dropbox didn't stop there. It also "gave the search experience on Android a massive facelift -- so you can get to your files even faster."
New search features include: scoping of searches, track recent searches, type-ahead suggestions and highlighting of search terms.
The new release is now generally available to users in the Google Play Store for download.
Dropbox in April received $500 million in debt financing from QueensBridge Venture Partners. The company has raised a total of $1.1 billion since 2007.
