Dropbox has updated its app for foldable phones to add support for external mice and keyboards. This means that you can now use a mouse and keyboard to interact with the Dropbox app on your foldable phone, just like you would on a desktop computer.

Google announced Thursday — just as they rolled out the ability to open attachments side-by-side on Gmail — that layout updates are coming to several popular apps. Dropbox is one of them. 

Organizing files can be a hassle, especially if you’re on a smaller device like foldable phones or a tablet. With this, not only can you move files and create folders faster, but you can also edit documents easily. 

Google Docs has also been updated to make editing on foldable phones and tablets easier and faster, with a more visible toolbar, cursor, and on-screen keyboard. 

Popular PDF reader, Adobe Acrobat Reader, has also been updated with a new layout and features for large-screen Android devices, making it easier to multitask, drag and drop PDFs, and compare documents side-by-side.

The best part? Google says that these changes are available, starting today.
