Dropbox for G Suite

Dropbox brings your work together in one place - create, organize, and share web-based content directly from Dropbox. Dropbox for G Suite lets you create, organize, and share Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides files in dropbox.com or the Dropbox desktop application. Any Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides files you create in Dropbox save to your Dropbox account and count toward your storage space. Any changes made to these Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides files automatically save back to your Dropbox account (but not your Google Drive or Google account). You can also edit your Microsoft Office files (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint) in Google (Docs, Sheets, and Slides) from Dropbox. You can even share Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides files exactly the same way you would share any file stored in Dropbox. Collaborate and stay up to date on your team’s work by receiving edits and comments on your web-based content as notifications from Dropbox.
