Dropbox has invested much of the past few years aimed on its services for enterprise business, but the firm got its start by providing a reasonably priced, simple sync and cloud storage option. With major rivalry in the sector from Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive, and Apple iCloud, Dropbox this week is making its plans a little more tempting.
The first Dropbox paid section, dubbed as plus, now has 2 TB of memory, 2 times more of what it had earlier and the same as you will get with same $10 plans on monthly basis from Apple and Google. The thing is that subscription only has a price tag of $10 on monthly basis if you sign up for a yearly plan—or else, you will now be billed $11.99 on monthly basis. That is still a bit more costly as compared to the rivals, but it is definitely nearer as compared to what it was earlier. And Dropbox was quick to highlight that it makes all its income via subscriptions, so it is not trading your personal data. Considering the strong interest in consumer privacy nowadays, it is not shocking to see them taking an Apple-akin decision when evaluating its service to Google’s items.
On a related note, video editors who work together on videos with Dropbox must be grateful for a new feature the firm rolled out earlier. “Time-based comments” are precisely what they seem like: consumers can now add a comment at a particular time stamp in a clip, making it a lot simpler to state exactly where an editor may need a modification to be made. As with all other comments by Dropbox, you can @ mention particular consumers to get seek attention, making it a little less possible that a requested modification will just sit there without being dealt with.
