About this app

Opera is a fast, safe web browser for your Android device, featuring a rebooted news feed, built-in Ad blocker, VPN and a QR & Barcode scanner.

★ Top features ★

Unlimited and built-in VPN:

Improve your privacy and security with our built-in and VPN. Turn on Opera VPN in the setting and your IP address will be replaced with a virtual one to help you avoid unintended location and identification information sharing. You can also switch to different virtual locations.

Block ads for faster browsing:

Opera’s native ad blocker effectively helps you get rid of intrusive ads and loads your pages faster to streamline your browsing experience. Now, we have added the option to eliminate a vast majority of annoying cookie and privacy dialogs.

Flow - seamlessly connects all your devices: 

The popular Flow feature lets the files, links or images that you share immediately appear on all your Flow-enabled devices, allowing you to seamlessly switch between your iPhone, Android phone, tablet and computer.

Built-in QR & Barcode scanner:

Easily access the built-in QR & barcode scanner. Simply tap the search bar and the scanner is available on the right side. Point the camera at any QR-code/barcode, and it will be scanned automatically.

Personalized news feed:

Powered by our smartest AI news engine, the rebooted news feed allows you to swipe through a selection of personalized news channels within the browser, subscribe to your favorite topics, and save stories to read later.

Night mode:

Opera’s night mode provides you adjustable lighting options to get the most comfortable reading experience in the dark and the least eye strain. Night mode is easily accessible from the main menu.

Manage passwords and autofill credit cards:

Opt in for automatic saving of passwords site by site and safely autofill your payment information for online shopping.

Private browsing:

Use private tabs to go incognito anywhere on the Internet without leaving a trace on your device. Easily switch between private and normal browsing in the tab gallery.

Read comfortably on any screen:

The Opera browser includes a text size setting which helps you adapt pages according to your reading preferences. More importantly, it works perfectly together with our automatic text wrap feature for an unparalleled reading experience.

Manage downloads easily:

Our new download manager makes downloading files easier and faster than ever! You can easily sort and share each downloaded item, delete them from your phone or remove them from your list of downloads with a quick swipe to the right or left side. We even support background downloading when you have a download running but need to open another application!

Home screen shortcuts:

Available on Android versions 7.1 or later, Opera offers fast access from the home screen to search, open a new private tab or scan QR codes. To create your own home screen shortcut, long tap on the Opera icon in your device’s home screen and tap your desired function.

Sync your Opera devices:

Give yourself access to all your bookmarks, Speed Dial shortcuts and open tabs from your other devices with Opera. Opera on Android can now easily sync with the Opera browser for computers.

Browser startup options:

Everyone is individual, so we let you choose whether to always open the browser with a new tab or to continue browsing where you left off, and to choose to close or preserve your open tabs when you exit the browser.

This is one of the best apps like your previous one with the Opera GX the other one I had a few issues here and there but this one seems to fix a lot of it. It's so much better to listen to music on YouTube with this app when using the YouTube since they've been using a lot more ads and their videos to a point upon skippable ones constantly being shoved in your face. Only encountered a few issues freezing mayor of a minor though it opens up a new tab everytime I try to use it. It's really good.

Prior to a recent update Opera would continue to download files in the background. After a recent update it appears to stop downloading, and/or quickly report download failure if I open a different app. I should add that this isn't the same thing as when the app has to re-start because of some sort of OS memory management. When I go back to the app it(the app)appears to still be running, it just isn't downloading anymore. It generally starts downloading again when I return to the app.

Hi Clay, thank you so much for taking the time to reach out to us and we're incredibly sorry. Download behavior also depends on the website. Please email us the name of the problematic page at our mail address support-opera-android@opera.com and we'll investigate the problem. Sincerely, Candra - The Opera Team.

The browser is pretty amazing. The amount of personal customization is amazing. I do wish there was a way to group tabs. I've had other browsers that allow that so it took a while to get to used not being able to organize or group multiple tabs. I read books so I have several tabs open at a time and it's just a little inconvenient not being able to do that. Other than that, this app has become my number one browser to use.
