Of all the technology resources UB students, faculty and staff receive, UBbox is one of the most powerful: a free, unlimited and secure cloud storage service with collaboration using Microsoft Office and Google Docs built in. And now changes coming June 21, 2017 to the UBbox web interface are making it even easier to use.

The new UBbox interface

The new layout is less congested, making it easier to find files at a glance. Navigation is easier, as is transitioning between views.

But the upgrades aren’t just cosmetic. The all-new UBbox features an improved search engine, and the option to preview HD and 360-degree videos without downloading them first.

In short, the new upgrades make UBbox even more accessible and easy to use.
