Box Notes takes on Google Docs with collaborative editing, available in beta now (video)

Box users who have been using other services to compose notes and collaborate on documents can now do so from inside the app, thanks to a Box Notes. The Google Docs-esque feature set allows for real-time, collaborative document editing, with the ability to embed images and video clips. Through a simple (even sparse) UI, team members can edit a file simultaneously while adding notes to specific items, as well as comments via a side pane (similar to Word and Docs). Additionally, Box says these new features will make their way to mobile devices. Unfortunately, though, The Next Web reports that Box Notes won't see a full release until sometime in 2014, and there's no word on pricing yet either. Still, those looking to jump on the beta can sign up via the source link below.
