With the new UWP, Dropbox is the latest app to take advantage and bring their product to more products from Microsoft. There are a lot of features that Dropbox has introduced exclusively for Xbox One. Let’s have a look at a few of them.

Firstly, the new Dropbox app will let you access and edit all of your media content from your Dropbox account on to the Xbox One- including all photos, videos, documents and more. Add to that, you can also share and arrange all your content on the Dropbox app for Xbox One.

Secondly, the Dropbox app on the Xbox One will be able to stream videos stored on your Dropbox account without having to download them on your console. This lets you save some crucial space, making it accessible by the big files that video games tend to take up.

Thirdly, the Dropbox app on your Xbox One has a completely different look compared to PC, mostly due to customization done by the company for Microsoft’s console. This UI optimization will help make Dropbox a rather console-friendly app, with easy accessibility from your Xbox One controller that has limited controls.

This update means that Dropbox is now available on Windows 10 PC, Windows Mobile, and Xbox One, taking forward Microsoft’s focus on a unified platform for all apps.
