Sharing Camera Uploads with Dropbox Family?

Sharing Camera Uploads with Dropbox Family?

Explorer | Level 3

I recently saw that the new Family plan was rolled out.  Does anyone know whether it's possible for multiple users to auto-upload pictures from their mobile devices to a shared Camera Uploads folder?

Re: Sharing Camera Uploads with Dropbox Family?

Hey there @ihaveyousomuch, thanks for reaching out to us here!

 

With the new Dropbox Family plan, each member of the family will still have their own account and therefore their own camera uploads folder.

 

While the camera uploads folder will remain separate, you can choose to share them with your other family members if you'd like to. However, others won't be able to automatically upload photos into the same folder, they would need to move the files after they're uploaded.

 

You can check out some more info on the new plan from here.

 

I hope this info helps, let me know if you have any questions!

Hi @BandH, the Family plan is currently in beta, and is released only to a small subset of Dropbox Plus users at this time.

 

We expect to release the Family plan broadly later this year.

 

Hope this helps to clarify matters!
