New: Access Dropbox, Google Drive, and One Drive From Right Within Buffer

Everyone has their own workflow for creating social media content. In writing, authors who plan out their plot in advance are called “plotters,” while others who fly by the seat of their pants are called “pantsers.” No matter your style when it comes to social media content — personally, I’m more of a plotter, but I love the pantsers I know —  we want to support you.

Now, with just a few clicks, you can import content directly into Buffer from Dropbox, Google Drive, and One Drive. Alongside our recent Canva integration — it has become easier than ever to create and publish social media posts without having to leave Buffer.

More about this new integration with Dropbox, Google Drive, and One Drive


This integration is rolled out to every Buffer plan, meaning it’s also available if you’re on our Free plan.

To get started uploading content to Buffer from any of these integrations, simply log in to your Buffer account and create a new post. You’ll see the buttons for Dropbox, Google Drive, and One Drive right next to Canva.

Here's what it looks like to bring in content from Google Drive, right from our composer.

For more information about setting up this connection, check out this Help Center article.

What’s next


We’re keen to continue helping small business owners save time while uploading, creating, and publishing content, which is why we’re planning on adding more value with new features.

Over the next few months, our team will continue iterating on this integration as well as working on native image editing functionality, such as cropping, rotating, sharpening, and more. Have a request? Reach out and share it!
