Dropbox releases new Windows 10 App with face recognition technology

Dropbox has released a new application compatible with Windows 10 operating system. Like Netflix, the new Dropbox app takes advantage of Microsoft’s universal app platform to run across Windows 10 tablets, PCs and phones.

The highlight of newly released Dropbox application is the addition of Windows Hello support. The said software tool allows users to log into machines with their faces.

In general, this feature needs a special camera support. But if the PC is compatible, then users can secure their Dropbox files with just their face.

Dropbox made it official that its new app will be the first to integrate with Windows 10 Hello. Thus, users of Dropbox application on Windows 10 phones can open up their files with facial recognition. Since, Windows Hello also works with fingerprint readers, any compatible devices will also unlock users Dropbox files.

Note- Dropbox’s latest Windows 10 app might not be as flexible as the direct integration in File Explorer from the current desktop app, but if users don’t need that then it appears to have most of the features any average Dropbox user would require.

There’s even drag and drop to move or copy files into Dropbox, and notifications for shared folder invites.

If anyone interested in trying the new app on Windows 10 then it’s available immediately from the Windows Store.
