Dropbox has announced that its real-time collaboration app Paper is now out of beta, as it looks to rival similar services such as Slack and Microsoft Teams.
The product was launched in beta last August and is now offered as a fully functioning service, available in 21 languages and offering capabilities like assigning tasks and setting deadlines.
"More than a doc, Dropbox Paper is a flexible workspace that brings people and ideas together. With Paper, teams can create, review, revise, manage, and organize—all in shared documents," Dropbox said on its blog.
Dropbox also touted the fact there are already users of the service in more than 200 countries with InVision, Ben & Jerry's and Shopify among those early adopters.
However, there is no mobile app version available yet and offline mode is still in the works, which is surprising given that Paper was first announced in 2015, even before it went into beta, meaning the company has had almost two years working on the service.
Dropbox did say both these features were coming soon though.
Additionally, the firm also announced it has overhauled its main website to improve navigation and new features for Business customers, such as being able to monitor who has accessed which files and when.
"With the ability to track what happens after you click ‘Share,' you can cut down on follow-up emails and keep projects moving forward,' it added.
Finally, Dropbox has announced that a new feature is now available for Business customers called Smart Sync, that lets you search Dropbox data from the desktop, on either Mac or Windows.
"With Smart Sync, all your files and folders can be viewed in Windows File Explorer and macOS Finder, even if they're not stored locally. And when you need them, files and folders are just a double click away," it added.
