Google Dropbox is an integration of some of the services between Google and Dropbox.

Dropbox is carefully building out its content collaboration functionality to give freedom to users to use whatever tools they want to, on whatever platform they desire.
This, is done to enable users to work efficiently across devices with the tools they love, creating a partnership with Google Cloud also as a unified home for content and the conversations around it.
Google Dropbox, also enables G Suite users, make good use of the cloud collaboration company’s toolset, by allowing user’s open and edit G Suite files directly from Dropbox folders on the hard drive and the web.
With the Dropbox’s iOS and Android apps tightly integrated with Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, users are allowed to create new files in Dropbox and then plunge right into the office to care for the details. Thus, your Dropbox storage can be linked to an office online account. Since both platforms have not announced how this works, Thus we will have to assume that the Google’s document types, will simply be added to the Dropbox interfaces when you ask it to create new files, that is if your Google and Dropbox account has been linked.
Those files will now be stored in Dropbox storage, where users can open and edit them straight through Dropbox’s interface.
