Authorization DropBox in UWP apps

As a UWP developer, I ran into the following problem.

With the authorization policy change, Dropbox no longer supports the OAuth2 application authorization flow in web views, nor does it support the Web Authentication Broker. Is there ANY workable solution for a UWP app to authorize a user to get a token to upload/download files to Dropbox storage from a UWP app that works out of the box?

I haven't found a way for a UWP app to launch an external browser, execute an OAuth2 flow, and then listen to a redirect URL in response to get a token. Is there ANY workable solution for a UWP listen to a redirect URL in response to get a token ?
