Box, Google Collaboration Tools Rapidly Becoming Interchangeable

August 29, 2018 / Chris Preimesberger

Just when you thought cloud storage and collaboration-tool maker Box eventually has to run out of ideas for new products, it comes up every year with about a dozen more just in time for its annual BoxWorks conference. For one thing, the Redwood City, Calif.-based company Aug. 29 introduced a new, more complete collaboration with Google’s G Suite in a public beta, building upon a longtime existing partnership with the internet search leader. The new integration with G Suite, first announced last month at Google Next, enables G Suite users to create, discuss, edit and collaborate on projects using Google Docs, Sheets and Slides without leaving the main Box application. The main difference here is that instead of saving all these documents, images, videos and spreadsheets to Google Cloud, they are automatically stored in the Box Cloud.
