Google turns on integrations with popular services like Box, Dropbox, and others in Gmail


Google has made a lot of improvements to Gmail this year as it continues to build out its G Suite office productivity service, and rolled out new integrations Thursday that will make it easier to exchange files and information from other services within Gmail.

First unveiled earlier this year at Google Cloud Next 2018, Compose Actions are add-ons to Gmail that let users save email attachments directly to their Box or Dropbox folders, for example. Atlassian (which just unveiled the new Jira design Thursday) and Engyte are also part of the first round of add-ons, with additional ones planned in the future, Google said in a blog post.

G Suite is a key part of Google’s cloud strategy, as it looks up at Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure on the infrastructure side of the cloud. Web-based office productivity software is old hat to a lot of tech companies, but there are a significant number of companies that are still using desktop files and attachments to manage their workflows; some are even still using paper, a thin, flat substance derived from trees upon which information can be conveyed.

And so as those enterprise companies take baby steps into the digital era with cloud-based file services like Box and Dropbox, integrations like these are an easy way to make Gmail customers a little more productive and they also help the four companies extend their services into the places where people spend most of their time. More integrations are coming soon, Google said, and developers can also build their own Gmail integrations for homegrown applications.

Zoom’s Work Transformation Summit on Jan. 19: Fresh Approaches for Moving Forward

These past two years have undoubtedly reshaped work. More specifically, these past two years — shuffling between remote, in-person, and hybrid work scenarios — reshaped what employees expect out of their jobs, how they want to work, and what the office means to them.  Organizations are challenged with making big decisions to meet those expectations, and those decisions will dramatically alter how they hire, manage their facilities, buy technology, and maintain productivity. Simply adjusting policies and retooling previous work models won’t do. It takes a comprehensive reimagining. To help organizations navigate this next phase of work, Zoom is hosting our  Work Transformation Summit  on Jan. 19, a free, half-day virtual event designed to provide you and your organization with meaningful strategies, creative approaches, and innovative solutions for redefining work.  Summit attendees will have the opportunity to hear from peers and industry experts on the importance of embracing technolo
