The collaborative writing tool from Dropbox has just entered open beta stage after 10 years of its announcement. The Dropbox Paper also getting iOS and Android versions as well. The paper makes it easy for teams by allowing them to add embedded videos from YouTube, text, images from Google or from Dropbox itself into the documents they are working on while being on a cloud. Not just that the Paper let users create to-do-lists and with just the @ symbol those tasks can be assigned to those working on that list. Teams can also add codes which will get formatted automatically.
Dropbox said in a comment that the Paper has been used to create devising ideas, capturing meeting notes and creating over million documents since its launch in private beta. From the experience over the period when in private bets stage Dropbox has learned some valuable lessons and implemented them such as better image gallery and tables, notification through mobile and desktop and more powerful search.
Google, Microsoft, and Box like compotators have similar products and hence we have to keep up with them with the Paper. Basically Paper is the Dropbox’s answer to Google Docs.
