SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dropbox, a free service that lets you bring your documents, photos and videos everywhere and share them easily, today announced availability in Korean. Dropbox in Korean will first be available on the web and select Android devices, with Mac, PC and iOS apps to follow.
“Dropbox users come from all over the world,” said Drew Houston, co-founder and CEO. “We’re excited to finally make Dropbox available in Korean and will keep working to support new languages.”
In addition to the new language availability, Dropbox has been working on technical and product updates for international markets. This includes an improved video transcoding experience making it faster for all Dropbox users to view videos of the most popular file types.
Additionally, Dropbox has worked closely with Samsung to integrate into the new user experience, letting people easily set up a free Dropbox account and enable automatic photo synchronization when they first start their phone. The out-of-the-box experience will ship globally this week with Samsung’s latest Galaxy S3 devices, demonstrating Dropbox and Samsung’s joint commitment to a great user experience.
“Sharing and accessing personal content easily from phones has become as important as making calls. Dropbox is committed to creating the greatest mobile experience for people worldwide,” said Lars Fjeldsoe-Nielsen, Head of Mobile Business Development at Dropbox. “Korea has been a leader in mobile technology adoption and innovation for many years. We are particularly thrilled to work with global partners, like Samsung, to jointly offer a localized version of Dropbox to the Korean people. We look forward to launching with millions of new Android phones and tablets this year.”
Dropbox will come integrated on new Samsung smartphones and tablets worldwide. People who purchase eligible Samsung devices and complete the Dropbox getting started guide (dropbox.com/gs) can get 50 GB free space for two years, which currently retails for nearly $200 with Dropbox Pro plans.
