Microsoft announces integration between Dropbox and Office Online

Dropbox logoBack in November, Microsoft and Dropbox joined forces to bring Office editing capabilities to iOS and Android users. Now the two companies have taken things to the next level, bringing the same capabilities to the web.

New integration between the ever-expanding Office Online and Dropbox means that it is now possible to create files in Microsoft's cloud-based office suite and save them directly to Dropbox. There's also the option of adding your Dropbox account to Office Online to allow for easy access to files ready for editing.

The merging of the two services will help to make life easier for anyone who finds themselves working in the cloud. As Dropbox points out, you don’t even need access to the desktop version of Office to be able to work with your documents using any computer with an internet connection. The company goes on to say:

We're aiming to make it even faster and easier to work with your Dropbox files from just your browser, so you can save time and be more productive.

Microsoft explains that the new integration is a two-way process. You can add your Dropbox account to Office Online to simplify file management, but you can also use the Open option when previewing Office files in Dropbox. There's no waiting time or rollout process -- the feature is now available to everyone using Dropbox and Office Online around the world right now.
