Box has launched their Box OneCloud platform for Google Android devices.
Box OneCloud has been available on Apple iOS devices for a while now. It is good to see them bring the same functionality to Android users.
Box OneCloud enable users to access their data stored on Box account in third party apps that are directly integrated with the official app.
Box spoke about the feature:
In building Box OneCloud for Android, we created a new SDK that allows developers to easily integrate with the Box Android app for seamless round-trip file editing and management. The SDK takes advantage of the native file management capabilities and encryption of files in transit between apps. Finally, we build on the file intent system that is already part of the Android operating system.
Features of the Android edition:
App Gallery: shows users what apps work with Box and is contextually sensitive to show the best apps for file editing and creation
Round-trip integrations: provides a seamless way for you to open Box files in partner apps and save them back to Box.
