The company hasn’t said when it plans to make SmartSync available to non-business customers though it’s “exploring” how to make it available to individuals.

Additionally, Dropbox announced that its collaboration software, Paper, is officially launching out of beta and will be available to all of the company’s users. The company has been testing the product since 2015 and opened up the beta version last spring.

The Google Docs-like Paper allows multiple Dropbox users to collaborate on documents in real time. Unlike Docs, though, the tool allows users to comment on any portion of a document and embed almost any type of media, from social media posts and audio files to photo galleries.

Now that it’s available to everyone, Dropbox has added a new presentation mode to Paper and a new meeting notes feature that allows you to add checklists, due dates and other “action items” to shared documents.

The company also previewed a new “projects” feature that allows teams to collaborate on multiple documents at once. Also in the pipeline: offline capabilities for Paper’s mobile apps and localization features for the apps (the company just added support for 21 new languages to Paper’s website.)
