Washington, June 26: Dropbox has announced that it has more than 400 million registered users, but it did not reveal the exact number of monthly active users.
According to reports, Dropbox has more than one lakh paying business customers and it also said that the users synchronize 1.2 billion files every day.
Drew Houston, the CEO of Dropbox, in an interview to Bloomberg West said the company is used by eight million businesses, up from four million a year and a half ago and that the vast majority of Fortune 500 companies are using it in some capacity.
Dropbox, which rolled out a redesigned Android application earlier this week, has actively been expanding its business services in order to diversify the company beyond just a consumer product.
Earlier, Dropbox also released a redesign of its Android app to streamline the process of sharing files and uploading folders.
The new app is a redesign of user interface which is more faultless compared to the previous versions.
The app also includes a new spot for the company’s search function, based at the top of the app’s interface. These kinds of features are important for frequent users that have to quickly browse through a number of large files.
Also, users can take photos directly from a folder that they are currently browsing with a new button on the bottom of the screen. The new app has also moved sharing controls and processes like moving files and adding them to favorites to a single spot on the user interface.
In addition, the app has been redesigned to be faster and look more in agreement with other new Android applications that Google has redesigned with its latest update to its Android operating system.
