Why I CAN Make FOLDER Available OFFLINE

Why I CAN Make FOLDER Available OFFLINE

On my Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 I have an OFFICIAL dropbox android app, which can sync ENTIRE FOLDER, to make OFFLINE ACCESS for it. Why the h*ll, I cant do same thing on Sony android smartphone? Same app, different features??

believe this is currently in beta trial with a select group of people on selected devices. It is not a fully released feature yet.

Have you asked this question on Reddit? There might be an answer or at least some sort of helpful explanation from a hard core tech familiar with the issues involved.

As Mark stated, the feature is not widely available yet.

I get that it might be a beta feature, and i am sorry for claiming to DropBox team for it:). Actually, every developers should notice, that each feature that available only for an open select group should be marked as beta, to avoid angering from users. 

You all know that the Offline folder feature is a sore subject, and I wish the DB team enable it to all soon. 

Hallelujah.

I can't believe this feature is not available yet and have to go through a 3rd party app to do it. Make it available quick please!

I agree.  I enjoy cooking have have 1,000's of recipes that I've got on DropBox and have no intention of individually selecting EACH file to make offline.  Having option to make and entire folder available "Offline" would be a huge step up for this app.

Dear guys, in a beginning of 2016 I lose the feature for making folders offline 😞  Also I cant find any other equal service with it.. conspiracy is inevitable. 

Terrible things are happening everywhere... Uprising close.
