One of the new iOS 9 features is supposed to be that Spotlight can search Dropbox, but it doesn't work for me.

I've gone into Settings > General > Spotlight and made sure Dropbox is set to "On" and I've got the later Dropbox app

It only shows recently viewed items I think.

So go open a pdf or something from dropbox and then do a spotlight search and you should see. It doesn't index the entire dropbox - that would be too large I think.

You were right, thanks.

Not very useful then...
