Dropbox just announced a new universal Windows app for Xbox that lets users view and manage files stored in the cloud on the gaming console. The service currently boasts more than 500 million users worldwide across Windows, Linux, Mac OS, and mobile platforms.

The Dropbox app will let you view and experience all of the media content from your Dropbox account on the Xbox One — this includes videos, photos, and much more. Additionally, you can share and manage your files from the Dropbox app on your Xbox.

As Xbox has grown, it has evolved from a gaming console to a media center. But every video or photo stored on the device occupies precious hard drive room that could otherwise be used for games and their updates. Dropbox says that the biggest benefit of the app is the ability to keep big files like movies or TV shows off the Xbox hard drive while retaining access to them.

What’s More

A major feature of the Dropbox app on the Xbox One is being able to stream the videos stored on your Dropbox account without having to download them. This will help you to save space on your Xbox One’s hard drive significantly so that you can use that free space to store your games.

Kinect owners can enjoy expanded Dropbox functionality, as the app will automatically upload the Kinect screenshots and photographs taken during the gameplay. In addition to being able to access the Xbox One’s internal hard drive, Dropbox console app supports a number of external storage solutions, including hard drives, USB sticks, and other universal Windows apps.

If you’re a Dropbox user and own an Xbox One, you can get the company’s app on your Xbox from the Windows Store.
