Last updated in July, it appears as if the Dropbox team is preparing another big update to their popular Android app. Not yet available in the Play Store, a preview of the application (version 2.1.8.6) is being sent out to a lucky few via email where users can download the app as part of a “sneak peek.” Features new to this version include:

  • Video thumbnails (before and after image above)
  • Better video playback on ICS and Jelly Bean
  • UI improvements for Nexus 7 tablets
  • Open Dropbox files directly from other apps
  • Other bug fixes

Users are encouraged to visit Dropbox’s forums to give feedback and if you can find download links there as well. No word on when we can expect this update to hit the Play Store but we imagine it wont be much longer.
