Tapping the More button in the popular messenger app now displays Dropbox as an available source. So long as the Dropbox app is installed on the device and an account is linked to it, users can share photos, videos and other files stored in the file hosting service directly in their conversations.
Videos and images – including animated GIFs – are displayed directly in conversations. Everything else can be viewed by recipients by tapping an Open button which brings them to either the Dropbox app or an associated web location, where they can preview and save files instantly.
In an additional feature, users of Messenger video chat now have the option of viewing a small 'chat head' in the corner of their screen during conversations, rather than video feeds occupying the entire screen, allowing users to continue messaging other people as they talk.
Both features are being rolled out to all Messenger users in the next few days. Facebook Messenger is a free download from the App Store for iPhone and iPad. [Direct Link]
