Dropbox Cast image and Pictures to Chrome Cast - feature request

I am super happy with my Dropbox license which is widely used on Android, iPad, and Windows 10 systems.

However, I miss one feature:
The ability to cast directly from Dropbox on Android and iOS systems.

I'm aware that you can set up your Android device to mirror the screen of a Chrome Cast, but it's cumbersome, and not always very reliable. Often the connection is lost and you have to set up the Mirror again.

If you are using an IOS device, mirroring of the screen is not possible. I realize that there are work around solutions that can be used, for example to use a browser and cast it, but it's not super functional.

My wish, and probably millions of other Dropbox users, is therefore:

Can we get:
Chrome Cast -  integrated directly into the Dropbox App - for Android and iOS devices ? ? ?

It will certainly be a feature that will be widely used.

I think it would be a great idea to make it possible to cast videos from the Dropbox app to your tv via chromecast or Apple TV. I know you can screen share with Apple TV but it would be nice to have the option with chromecast and other devices.

i think this is definitely a must have feature now. i store all my photos on dropbox, but have no possibility to quickly show those photos to my family. a bit of a bummer.
