Dropbox for Android updated; simplifies photo sharing ability

Dropbox has updated its Android app to make the process of photo sharing a lot easier. Users can choose their favourite photos and videos from their library and share it with a few simple taps. To view the shared photos, the viewers don’t need a Dropbox account.

Sharing the photos is really simple. From the Photos tab, users can tap the button on the top right, and select the pictures they want to share. Users can add them to a named album to save for later, or just grab the link to share via email, Facebook, or Twitter. Simple isn’t it?

The feature is currently available only for Android and there is no word on when the feature will reach iOS. We hope it will happen soon. Android users need to be running Android 2.3 or higher to be able to avail this new feature. Users can update the app on their Android device or download Dropbox from the Google Play store here.
