No Google Docs GSuite Integration Over A Year Since Announcement?

Level 3

On March 1, 2018 Dropbox announced it would be adding Google Docs integration so Google docs could be created/edited via Dropbox. This capability has already been added for Microsoft Office Docs. Correct me if I'm wrong but over a year later and the Google integration has not gone live? Are these plans canceled indefinitely, if not, what is the timeframe for Google Doc integration? I believe Dropbox owes businesses like mine an explanation as we use this information to make IT decisions and can't keep waiting and wondering before we migrate to a different service.

Hey there @JazJ, thanks for taking the time to show your interest in this and sorry to hear you feel this way. We're truly excited about this new partnership and all I can share at the moment is the link to the blog-post you mentioned. 

https://blogs.dropbox.com/dropbox/2018/03/google-cloud-integrations/

Having said that and as I'd hate to provide you with inaccurate information about this, let me ask the team about it and get back to you as soon as I have more to share.

Thanks for your patience.

Walter,

Thank you for the prompt reply.  Now if the announcement was a month ago, or even two months ago, or heck even 6 months ago, I could live with the explanation that things are "still in the works" so to speak.  But don't you think referring me back to an announcement that happened OVER A *YEAR* AGO is a bit ridiculous.  

I would hope that Dropbox would finally be TRANSPARENT to its users about what the actual status of this integration is instead of leaving it's users in the dark further even after over a year has passed since the announcement. It really makes Dropbox look uncommunicative and frankly a bit disrespectful to its users like me.

Thanks for looking into it.
