Nearly a couple of weeks after Microsoft announced a partnership with Dropbox, the company has updated the Office app for Android with support for the cloud storage service. This means that Office for Android users can now add Dropbox as an online storage location, browse and edit their files from the app, and automatically save them back to Dropbox. They can also share their Dropbox files right from the Office Mobile app.
The update follows Dropbox integration for Office apps on iOS, which arrived shortly after the companies trumpeted the deal.
In addition, the update also adds the ability to generate and share links to documents in your OneDrive and OneDrive for Business right within the app. This means that now when you share a document with someone, they don't need to have a Microsoft account to be able to view or edit it, just an email address. To share a link, simply open a document from your OneDrive, tap on the context menu, tap Share and then choose Email as link.
For Android users, Microsoft is planning to release another update that will spilt Office into separate apps for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, although the company hasn't yet announced a time frame.
Meanwhile, the latest update can be downloaded from the Google Play store.
