Dropbox Kills Mailbox and Carousel

The online storage company Dropbox closes two services.

Dropbox is shutting down Mailbox and Carousel. In 2013, Dropbox acquired Mailbox trying to make mobile email better. In 2014, the company launched Carousel, a photo sharing service.

Dropbox has moved its teams to focus on collaboration and simplifying the way people work together. Dropbox says that this forced them to shut down Carousel and Mailbox.

Dropbox will be taking key features from Carousel in to the Dropbox app. The company also takes features from Mailbox to build new ways to communicate and collaborate on Dropbox as shown with the Paper app.

Dropbox tries making the transitions from Mailbox and Carousel as painless as possible. Mailbox will be shut down on February 26th, 2016, and Carousel will be shut down on March 31st, 2016.

Dropbox did not reveal how many users are affected by the shutdown of both services. Mailbox and Carousel users can found out about how to get their data out here and here.
