The combined features allow seamless sharing and collaboration of content in real-time, with the company’s seeking to aid users in moving projects forward.
“Whether you’re working with someone across the hall or across the country, the right products should make it seamless to collaborate and stay in sync," said Drew Houston, co-founder and chief executive of Dropbox.
"We're thrilled to join forces with Zoom – together, we're making it easier for customers to do their best work. Partnerships with best-of-breed companies like Zoom help us deliver on our mission of designing a more enlightened way of working.”
“It is important to Zoom that we work with high-quality solutions across the communication and collaboration spaces to build the best experiences and deliver happiness to our customers," said Zoom founder and chief executive Eric Yuan. "At our customers’ request, we’ve partnered with Dropbox to do just that. I look forward to growing this partnership for the benefit of our mutual customers.”
