Microsoft adds more cloud storage options to Office apps on Android

Third-party cloud storage platforms like Dropbox and Box have been available in desktop versions of Microsoft Office for a few years, but the mobile versions have been much more limited. Oh, they supported OneDrive, but who uses that? Starting today, you have new storage options and a few more on on the way.

Sling TV introduces recording with a closed beta for its Cloud DVR service

While Sling TV makes a pretty compelling offering for those who want to ditch expensive conventional television service, its all-live setup is something of a bummer - recording has become so ingrained in the premium TV mindset that it's hard to give up. The company is rectifying that shortcoming with Cloud DVR, a (wait for it) DVR service that uses cloud storage to hold recorded TV episodes and other content. It's in closed beta right now - prospective users can sign up and cross their fingers at this address.

Box for Android upgraded 4.0 with a shiny new user interface

Box, the cloud storage service that doesn't start with "Drop," is still around and serving its users. They haven't been making much of a splash lately, though - the last major update to the Android app was way back in February of last year. But users are in for a treat: yesterday's update added a brand new interface. It's been in the works for a while (a beta version popped up over on APK Mirror in June), and the results are appealing. Check out the differences:

Google Drive v2.4 Adds Inline Uploads And User-Selectable Colored Folders, May Soon Add Various Smart Recommendations And More [APK Teardown + Download]

While Google has been pushing out a ton of OS and app updates, the Drive team got out one of its own.

Google Photos v1.18 Adds Manual Backup For Local Photos And Video [APK Download]

Cloud storage is probably the greatest thing to happen to casual photography since manufacturers started putting decent shooters into smartphones. There's nothing like snapping a couple of group shots and throwing them up on Google Photos without the hassle of hooking a computer to a phone just to move them over first. The catch is that most of us choose not to sync pictures over cellular, instead waiting to get back within reach of Wi-Fi so our data plans don't feel too much abuse. However, there are times you still need to back up a few shots right away, and that's where the latest Google Photos update comes in.

Dropbox Now Has Over 500 Million Registered Users

Earlier this year, the Dropbox Android app ran by the 500 million installs milestone on Google Play. The problem with that metric is that it tracks the number of times the app has been downloaded from the Play Store, which includes updates to pre-installed versions.

We still don't know the answer to that question, but today Dropbox is happy to announce the number of people using the service overall. Over 500 million people have signed up since the file hosting company started syncing the contents of desktop folders in 2008.

Dropbox Android App Passes 500 Million Installs On Google Play

Many of Google's apps have passed a billion installs. This sounds like a large accomplishment, until you consider that shipping pre-installed counts as being installed. In that case, it's more impressive when third-party software makes the list. Dropbox isn't at a billion yet, but it's now halfway there.
