By default, Facebook Messenger doesn’t have any native option to directly upload files to Dropbox.

Actually, there is a free Facebook Messenger bot called “Alfredo” which can assist you to upload files to Dropbox. The best part of this bot is that it works on both the mobile app and web app of Facebook Messenger.
Update: The “Alfredo” bot seems to have stopped working.
