Dropbox has released a new update to its Windows Phone 8.1 app. The cloud storage app has been bumped to version 2.6, and the new version brings some features from the recently updated Windows 10 version such as the ability to share individual files with only specific people. You can file the full changelog below:

  • Open the app to the last visited tab
  • Share an individual file with only specific people
  • Create and manage password protected shared links
  • Text preview now support syntax highlighting

Rudy Huyn, a popular Windows Phone developer who was hired by Dropbox last year also announced the new release on Twitter earlier today:

While Huyn is a long-time Windows Phone supporter, it remain to be seen if Dropbox plans to keep updating its Windows Phone 8.1 app going forward. On Windows 10, the Dropbox UWP app currently enjoys several advanced features such as printing support, video casting through DLNA and Miracast and more.
