Dropbox will soon enable a new feature that will finally let users connect their work and personal accounts on any of their devices. You don’t need to sign in and out for switching, instead you'll be able to see both your accounts as folders on the same screen in all versions of the service. The company first announced that it was working on the feature back in November.

According to The Verge, Dropbox recently sent an email to users of its Dropbox for Business product stating that the feature will go live April 9th. "It's really nice to have home and business together in the same place," said Dropbox founder Drew Houston at Dropbox HQ in San Francisco, adding that the new feature will uncomplicate things, especially when employees switch companies.

Dropbox claims that their service is used by more than 4 million businesses and 200 million personal users. While it certainly has gained a lot of traction, many feel that the price for the service is quite high compared to its competitors like Google Drive, Microsoft's SkyDrive (now OneDrive), and others.

Just recently, Google drastically dropped the price for storage on Google Drive -- 1 TB storage is now available at just $9.99 a month. On the other hand, Dropbox still charges $49.99 a month for 500 GB. Seems like the cloud storage company is trying hard to please its users by rolling out new features.
