Dropbox rolls out Mailbox for Mac with new 'snooze to desktop' feature

Dropbox, one of the popular online-storage firms, is looking to transform from its cloud origins to a multi-purpose platform. The company is all set for an app-centric future with Mailbox -- which it acquired last year.

One of the most popular email applications Mailbox is now coming to the Mac desktop. The Mailbox for desktop boasts more or less similar features that iOS and Android users love the most.

"Today is a big day for Mailbox: we're pleased to announce the public beta of our Mac app and the launch of several new features including draft support and the ability to snooze messages until you get back to your desk," the company said in a blogpost.

Support for drafts is one of the most common feature requests for Mailbox and becomes even more important when managing an inbox across multiple devices. Along with the rollout of Mailbox for Mac beta, the company is also launching draft support for Mailbox on desktop and iOS (coming soon on Android). Drafts are saved locally to the device you're on and automatically synced across devices when you're signed in with your Dropbox.

Dropbox first revealed an early version of Mailbox for Mac back in April this year, and it is rolling out the service in beta.

"Here's how the beta rollout works: if you signed up for the wait list, keep an eye on your email over the coming weeks - we'll be sending you a small attachment that we call a betacoin. This coin will unlock your copy of Mailbox for Mac and turn on the mobile "snooze to desktop" feature," the blogpost read.
