Microsoft now would provide Dropbox as an option in both its free and paid versions of Office Online .
According to reports, currently 35 billion Office files are stored in Dropbox. With this vast amount of Office files online, partnering with Microsoft will certainly help both ways. Now Dropbox users can collaborate on documents with co-workers even without buying the Microsoft’s cloud version of Office.
Microsoft has reported that this new Dropbox support feature will be available to Office 365 users starting from 2015. It should be noted that Box a big competitor of Dropbox has already been working with Microsoft on its Office 365 product from last month. So this new deal may be troublesome for Box as its less popular than Dropbox.
