Dropbox is a cloud storage app that is similar to Google Drive. That means you can use this platform to store your important files like audio, images, videos, or documents. Also, you can use the Dropbox platform for free, and this comes as great news for the users who want to back up their important files. But you will only get 2GB of cloud storage, and you can also connect your account with three different devices simultaneously. However, you can upgrade your account to get cloud storage of up to 3TB. So now, let us see how you can get the Dropbox platform on your Roku Connected TV.
