In my Dropbox client (v.139.4.4896, macOS 12.1), I am not getting the option to install betas in my Preferences > General settings, anyone else? How to fix this?

Oops, I just discovered a post by Fabio L. on the previous page of posts that links to the latest beta installer, so I imagine it is necessary to install that first:

Nope. That download put my Dropbox client at v.140.3.1928, but still no option to allow beta updates.

Does anyone have a direct link to the Apple Silicon beta?

 

***Never mind! I just realized that v140.3.1928 *is* the Apple Silicon beta...so am I wrong in assuming that when running it, it will automatically consider beta updates, even though that setting is not in the General tab?

@tillkrueger you have to go to the settings of the web interface not to that of the client. General → early releases.

Hi everyone, if you're interested in installing the beta for the Apple silicon (M1) version of the Dropbox desktop application, these are the steps you need to follow:
 
  1. Visit your account settings on the Dropbox site.
  2. Enable the option for Early Releases
  3. Install the beta client for Mac
  4. For good measure, I would also recommend rebooting your device once the installation is complete

If you need any further assistance, please let me know!

I activated the option to receive betas from day one, but so far no support for the M1 here. I've restarted the app, the machine and nothing. And now, what's the solution?

How is the experience running beta version of dropbox on M1? – want to try it, but currently working on projects which won't let me test the waters, in case things go wrong 🙂

@Pokapix So far I noticed absolutely no hiccups or signs of this being beta.

Need more support?
