A new update for Opera Mini on Android has been announced which includes new features specially designed for Indian smartphone users. The new version 23 has been updated with features that focus on content distribution, engagement, and accessibility. According to Opera, the new update will also help users get the content they want faster than before.
The new Opera Mini browser will offer users the option to download files easier with its auto scan feature. Users can download files quickly and easily without accidentally clicking the unwanted pop-up ads. Basically when a user visits social media or video sites, the browser will automatically scan for direct download links under the Extreme Mode. The downloadable content will be directly available from a drop-down menu on the top rather than scrolling through the web page. Currently the auto scan feature works on Facebook, Pagalworld, Tubidy, DJPunjab and more are being added.
The new Opera Mini app will also feature a built-in newsfeed feature. According to the company, it will be a more personal newsreader which will learn about people’s reading habits to provide more relevant content.
Other features on the new Opera Mini browser include compression of saved pages where the size of a page one saves will become as little as 10 percent of their original size, support for video boost when using Extreme mode which reduces up to 50 percent of data consumption when watching video and full-menu Facebook Android notification bar users get access to notifications without the need to open another app.
“Mobile browsers are becoming the gateway to the internet users in India, and most of the users consume content on the small screen these days while on the move. There are challenges regarding limited bandwidth availability, content distribution and accessibility, ” says Nuno Sitima, Executive Vice President of the mobile business unit at Opera Software. “Opera has stepped up the game for browsers, introducing novel features such as video boost and built-in ad-blocker. With these handy new features, we want our users get the most out of the web.”
