Dropbox said that as part of the partnership, it plans to develop a series of cross-platform integrations that connect G Suite cloud productivity tools and content over Gmail, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Hangouts, with its global collaboration platform.

It is also available on a variety of operating systems, such as Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android.

Following Google's decision to make its Hangouts platform more business-centric, the company later announced that they will be launching Hangouts Meet and Hangouts Chat, with the latter being Google's take on Slack which has been created to be a communications platform for the workspace. With this partnership, users will be able to create, open and edit files built with Google (Docs, Sheets, Slides), that are saved into Dropbox. Over the past year, we've been focusing on how we can solve this problem for individuals and teams by delivering a unified home for work.

For many small businesses who want fully integrated and affordable solutions, G Suite with Hangouts Chats is a great option.




"Chat also comes equipped with 25 bots to help speed up workflows, ranging from finance and human resources to CRM, project management and more", Johnston said. Hangout Chat is an expansion of Google's Hangout platform and the company's answer to services like Slack, workplace by Facebook.

With support for 28 languages and up to 8,000 members per room, Hangouts Chat offers features similar to Microsoft Teams, Cisco Spark and Slack.

According to official spokespeople of Google and Alphabet, Hangouts Chat will be gradually rolled out to every single G Suite user on the face of planet Earth over the next week, with all roll-outs slated to be finished by March 7, 2018. A so-called Quick Access to Drive feature for instance suggests files or content that a user might need for a meeting based on activity in the users Google Drive and the information in their documents.
