Dropbox Introduces Dropbox Dash, AI-powered Universal Search, and Dropbox AI for Files
“We're excited to roll out Dropbox Dash, AI-powered universal search, and Dropbox AI for file summarization and Q&A, today to help our customers search, organize, and gain insights from not only their files but all of their cloud content," said
Easily find and navigate content with Dropbox Dash, AI-powered universal search
Work has changed dramatically over the last few years and customers’ work lives have become increasingly difficult to navigate. Their work is scattered across hundreds of tabs and apps on the desktop and browser. And instead of having one search bar for work, many customers feel like they have 10. People spend so much of their workday navigating between apps and content. In fact, knowledge workers spend 8.8 hours a week just looking for files and content and 69% spend up to 60 minutes a day navigating between apps.
Dropbox Dash is AI-powered universal search that connects the tools, content, and apps customers use everyday in a single search bar. With connectors to major platforms like Google Workspace, Microsoft Outlook, Salesforce, and more, customers can find everything in one place, fast. Now customers can skip the time-consuming task of toggling between apps and quickly share content, join a meeting, or find a presentation a teammate shared with Dash. And because Dash is powered by machine learning, it learns, evolves, and improves with more use.
In addition to universal search, Dash delivers new features through the browser extension, including:
- Stacks: Smart collections for links that offer a quick way to save, organize, and retrieve URLs. In the same way files have folders and songs have playlists, Stacks provide an easily shareable, organizational layer for cloud content.
- Start Page: A single dashboard that lets customers access Dash universal search, view Stacks, get shortcuts to recent work, and start meetings, making it easier to navigate the day and get back to their most important work.
Coming soon, Dash will be able to pull from customers’ information and their company’s information to answer questions and surface relevant content using generative AI. Customers won’t need to sift through all their company’s internal links and pages to find the answers to their questions. They’ll be able to ask Dash and quickly get an answer.
Dropbox Dash is currently available in beta to select customers (English only). To learn more and join the Dash waitlist, visit dropbox.com/dash.
Instantly summarize content and get answers with Dropbox AI
Dropbox is also applying AI to file previews, one of the most highly-trafficked web surfaces, as part of a new offering called Dropbox AI. With Dropbox AI, customers can save time by:
- Quickly understanding large documents or videos without parsing through the entire file. With the click of a button, customers can summarize content, like contracts and meeting recordings, into a concise explanation.
- Getting information without the hassle of manually searching through large files. Simply ask a question and get a response within seconds.
Soon, customers will be able to use Dropbox AI on their folders and their entire Dropbox account.
Dropbox AI for file previews is currently in alpha. Starting today, it will be available in the
