Hangouts Chat was recently transitioned out of its beta form, and is readily becoming an integral component of Google's in-progress G Suite.

Dropbox and Google have announced a new partnership revolving around Dropbox's core functionality and Google's Cloud and popular G Suite of applications.

The partnership is surprising, given the fact that G Suite and Dropbox are considered rivals in the cloud storage and collaboration space, as noted by Natalie Gagliordi of our sister site ZDNet.

And the Hangouts Chat integration will facilitate searching for, and sharing, Dropbox files within a hangout. This is a big deal for the storage company, as more than 50 percent of Dropbox users have a G Suite account.

Users will be able to create, open, and edit Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides files that live in Dropbox. It offers integrations with Salesforce, Freshdesk, Trello, Wrike, JIRA and more. Dropbox says that these various integrations will be implemented in the second half of 2018, so you've still got a while to wait yet. Ultimately, there will be support for Docs, Sheets, Slides, Hangouts Chat and Gmail, making it far easier to work with the cloud services from Dropbox and Google together. Furthermore, collaboration is secure, with Dropbox admins able to manage Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides alongside other Dropbox content.

Native Dropbox integrations will be coming to Gmail and Google Hangouts Chat as well, the release said.

For example, users will be able to select and generate Dropbox file links from directly within Gmail, as well as choose to see metadata on Dropbox content in Gmail including date created, last saved, and last accessed.

Google Hangouts Chat comes pre-equipped with 25 workflow bots and an API platform that will enable developers to build additional integrations. The firm now has 500 million registered users, but only 11 million are paying for its services.
