With over 100,000 active installs, our Chrome extension is the most popular client for Attachments.me users. Given this, we’re excited to announce that we’ve just released a major update to it:
Sharing Has Never Been Easier
When composing a message in Gmail, it’s now much easier to share your files using Attachments.me:
- Share multiple files, from across Dropbox, Box, SkyDrive, and Google Drive, with a single link:
- Share files from your local Harddrive, side-by-side with files from the cloud:
- Control how people access the files you share, by setting the expiry on a link:
This update to the Chrome Extension adds a ton of functionality, and reduces the number of steps necessary to share files through Gmail.
Give it a shot, and let us know what you think.
Good news, everyone! Spreadsheets are better than ever now that you can share and view them with Attachments.me. Sending Excel files allows for the recipient to see a beautifully rendered and interactive preview like this:
From there, files can be viewed, downloaded or sent to a linked Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, or Skydrive account. Either way, you’re going to be a spreadsheet-wielding hero (cape not included).

We’re proud to announce the rollout of a sweet new feature on the Attachments.me website called notifications.
The Notifications feature lets you know when and how files are being moved between your email and cloud storage, includes real-time error messaging, and provides a tangible log of your Attachments.me activity.
Notifications are available right now on the website. For phase one of the rollout we’re only reporting on trouble with moving an attachment, but soon notifications will be the place to see all activity between email and the cloud.
Stay tuned for notification integration into our apps on other platforms as well. We can’t wait to show you what we have in store!
The first phase of Attachments.me was about helping deal with the mess of attachments we get in email. We upgraded Gmail and offered fast ways to get your files into cloud storage. Our work was well received. For example, our automatic filing rules transfer over 3 million files a month into the cloud and that number continues to grow.
Today we are launching phase two of Attachments.me, we’re calling it Attachments Everywhere.
Attachments Everywhere adds to our website and our popular clients for Gmail and iPhone, giving you a great new way to share your files. Share documents and files from your hard drive or already synced Dropbox, Box, Skydrive and Google Drive cloud accounts.
Attachments Everywhere gives you fine grained control of each file you share with someone. We provide you the tools to know when the receiver has viewed or downloaded a file and our advanced security features ensure that only the intended recipient can see any document you share. We’ve been working very hard to bring this new way to share your files to life and we can’t wait to get you using it!
Attachments Everywhere is available now here.
