According to the blogpost on Clementine’s site they company is excited about the next stage of their journey in joining the Dropbox entity. Clementine further shared their mission and passion will stay the same which is the collaboration of workplace technology.
The Clementine stage will undeniably grow as Dropbox will use the technology to engage with more than 100,000 businesses and more than 400 million users.
For now individual paid services by Clementine will be stopping but they may soon resurface as part of the Dropbox sphere. Although the free app version will still function for the users already registered on Clementine but it will only stay active until August 2015.
Clementine was sort of a Google Hang out app which provided services such as telephone conferencing on both the iOS and the Android devices. A user could make unlimited calls and texts for just $9.99 per month through Clementine which could be the new options now available on Dropbox.
Dropbox could use the merger for good and become a cloud-based file-sharing app to compete with competition such as Google Drive. Previously Dropbox had acquired Umano to expand its enterprise.
