Dropbox announced several new features today including a new Homepage design, the ability to view a timeline of activity for a file, and improvements to Dropbox Paper.

Today, we’re unveiling new features that make it easier to locate your most frequently used files, stay on top of projects, and work seamlessly as a team. Now everything you need is in one place, with up-to-date, easy-to-find information.

Here's a look at what's new:

---
Homepage
Our updated homepage lets you track your files and activity in one place. It organizes your work to help you focus on what needs your attention first. And for the first time, you’ll see more than just files on your homepage. You’ll see unread activity on files and Paper docs, including comments, shares, and @mentions. Your homepage will highlight the files or Paper docs you’ve recently viewed, starred, edited, or uploaded across any platform, whether you’re working on the web or your mobile device. (Available now for the Dropbox app on iOS and coming soon for Android).

File Changes
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be rolling out a new feature that shows when someone has made changes to a file. When previewing a file on the web, you and your team will see a new tab showing who’s added, edited, renamed, or moved files across folders. We’ve also made it easy to collaborate no matter what kind of file you’re sharing. Dropbox now lets you preview more file types, including Sketch and a wider range of raw photos. Even if a teammate doesn’t have Sketch installed, they’ll still be able to review the work and leave comments.
