Dropbox is adding new syncing capabilities to its Mac app, to extend the feature beyond folders to documents, downloads, and desktop.
As reported by 9to5Mac:
As noted the feature is currently in beta, so unavailable to most users, however, it is indeed in the pipeline. Dropbox is a handy tool for professional and personal use alike, allowing users to sync files across numerous devices, or within groups of people. The new syncing features will push Dropbox forward at a time when Apple is improving its own iCloud file-sharing capabilities with iOS 13.4, particularly thanks to folder sharing.
