How many times a day do you watch videos on your Android phone and get stuck with a video that loads slowly?

Opera Mini for Android fixes this with a new feature, video boost, which reduces the size of video data. When a video is optimized, it loads faster. If you haven’t tried this fast mobile browser yet, download it free from Google Play.

An Ericsson Mobility Report anticipates that 55 percent of all mobile data traffic will be from video by year 2020. Our early rollout of Opera’s compression technology for video makes sure mobile users get the content they want, when they want it.

Video boost is an important feature, especially if you are on a slow internet connection and have a limited data plan. With Opera Mini for Android, you can watch more videos for the same data plan.

How to turn on video boost

Tap the “O” in the menu and change to high-savings mode. Below, tick the box beside video boost to switch it on. This feature also shows you how many videos have been optimized.

    What’s the point of releasing this “Opera Mini” in parallel with “Opera for Android” instead of just adding to the main product whatever data saving or other new functionalities you wanted to add? Are you trying to create as much confusion as possible?

    Also, when can we get the level of UI customizability in the mobile version of the browser that we had in the good old desktop-based Opera Presto that made Opera great? Other mobile browsers like Sleipnir have shown that it’s possible to do a far far better job of this.

      Opera for Android contains Chromium so its only compatible with Android Jelly Bean 4.1 and up on top of requiring more storage space. It makes the engine much faster and compatible than Slepnir’s (because they use outdated WebView).

      I agree about the “confusion” thing but that’s Android ladies and gents, people stuck on 2.3-4.0 and with low storage space don’t have a choice.
