Apple Silicon native support

Apple Silicon native support

Almost a year after the introduction of Apple Silicon Macs, Dropbox remains one of the very few major software suppliers on my MacMini M1 that doesn't have an Apple Silicon Native or Universal install. It is still Intel based, using Rosetta to function. It does work, but as a result is now my biggest CPU hog. Adobe CS, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome... But also many many smaller software vendors have a native install. So what are you waiting for, Dropbox? Thanks!

this is pretty ridiculous. M1 Chips shipped one year ago - more than 2 years ago apple offered for dev teams the apple silicon based chips and a company like dropbox can't handle a small software like this? We pay every month for a service that we love - but simple things like convert it to a native version is not possible? Very embarrassing -.-

Please dear mr. dropbox, update ur software soon. Ur software doesn't use metal engine or renderings for ambient occlusion. Its just a "simple" tool.

Regards

Just FYI, there's already https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Dropbox-ideas/Apple-Silicon-M1-Desktop-Sync-Compatibility/idi-p/5277... about the same thing which has been ignored as well.
