Octonius and Adobe Creative Cloud

Yes. It’s time to give thanks to the creative community and show them we listen to their feedback.
Since Adobe CC became a widely used storage platform for Adobe users, we think it’s only natural to integrate it in our platform.

In the upcoming weeks, we will update Octonius with this cloud storage. Everyone will be able to connect their Adobe CC account to Octonius and collaborate without frictions.

We’ll keep you posted.
