What's Dropbox's messaging strategy?

Dropbox continues to build out their enterprise messaging cachet with the news that the venerable cloud sync-and-store company has snapped up stealthy startup Droptalk for an undisclosed sum, bringing their technology and talent alike into the fold. 

Droptalk's solution (Tagline: "Drop content into conversations") came in the form of a browser extension (with planned iOS and Android apps), only available via limited beta previous to the acquisition and discontinued as of today, that let users privately send links to each other and chat about them.

Users could also see a real-time feed of files from cloud storage as they were updated, lending it some obvious synergy with Dropbox. Droptalk's YouTube video demo gives the basic idea.
