Share Dropbox Files Directly From Facebook Messenger

Facebook and Dropbox have announced a new partnership that allows people send photos, videos, and other files while chatting on Messenger. Those of you that want to give this a try will have to download and install the Dropbox app, available on iOS and Android, before you can start sharing files.

Videos and imagesآ—including animated GIFsآ—will be displayed directly in your chats. For everything else, tapping Open will bring recipients to the Dropbox mobile app, where they can preview and save files. It’s a quick, simple way to share vacation snapshots, home movies, and laugh-worthy memes with any of the 900 million people using Messengerآ—whether they’re Facebook friends or not.
