Dropbox announced a few months ago that it had over 400 million users and that it was in use at over 8 million businesses, though only 100,000 of those were actually Dropbox for Business customers. Now, the company says over 60% of its Basic and Pro users say they're using the service primarily for work.

The company just announced the launch of a new team feature for Basic and Pro accounts enabling users to collaborate for work purposes. It's designed for small teams so they can organize projects, share information, etc.

Dropbox says the feature will enable you to collaborate from a central place, share things with your team faster, and keep your files where you need them.

"Put all the information everyone needs in the team folder — and keep them all on the same page. Each team member will automatically get access to files put in this folder for easy collaboration from anywhere," the company says in a blog post. "Create groups of team members to quickly share with working groups. And if you need to add someone later on, they’ll instantly get access to any folders already shared with the group."

" Everyone can create separate accounts for personal and work files so they can stay focused on getting things done. Both accounts will be available from anywhere — desktop, mobile, and on the web," it adds.

Earlier this summer, Dropbox launched file requests as an easy way for users to collect files fromi groups of people. In June, the company put out this infographic looking at a timeline of feature additions.
