Move is intended to streamline review process when working with video and audio files


Dropbox has introduced time-based commenting for video and audio files.

The move is intended to make it easier for creative teams to collaborate when working with video and audio.

Time-based commenting helps streamline the review process and ensures people don’t have to move between different apps, search for comments on long email threads, or have trouble connecting comments with the work itself.

When Dropbox users now share a video or audio file, recipients can place a comment at a specific place on the file’s timeline. So instead of commenting “There’s a popping noise on the soundtrack about a minute in,” reviewers can place a comment at the 0:51 mark that says, “Remove popping noise.”

Time-based commenting is available on and its iOS app from today, with support for Android coming soon. The facility is available to Dropbox Professional, Business Advanced, Enterprise, and Education users.
