We are delighted to inform you that Opera Mini is the first major browser to introduce an offline file sharing feature. Now you can share photos, videos and audio files with others without an internet connection. This will save you more megabytes and will bring you more value for your data package.
How does offline file sharing work?
The answer is simple, Opera Mini creates a secure private network connection between devices via a direct Wi-Fi connection. This guarantees a successful transfer of files at great speed — 200 times faster than Bluetooth.
As both devices are connected via direct Wi-Fi, you can be confident that the connection between them will never break unless you decide to stop it.
How do I send and receive files?
To start sharing files with friends and family, you need to access file sharing in your browser settings. Once there, tap Send in order to share or Receive to get a file from the second device. Opera Mini will provide a QR code which can be scanned by the receiving device to easily establish a connection.
Save more money on data
The new offline file sharing feature in Opera Mini is a great complement to the already popular data compression mode in the browser. You are now able to save even more megabytes by sharing files offline. In other words, you will spend less data and save more money.
Share your downloaded files
The new offline file sharing feature works with the popular download manager in Opera Mini. This makes it easier for you to share files you’ve already downloaded. This also saves you a lot of steps as you don’t need to navigate through your phone’s drive when searching for a file you want to share.
Improving your interaction with Opera Mini
Opera Mini was the first mobile browser to bring a full internet experience to millions of people on their mobile devices. Its unique ability to save up to 90% of mobile data, and its speed when loading websites, make it the favorite browser of millions worldwide.
With the addition of offline file sharing, we are expanding the ways in which you interact with Opera Mini. The new feature has been designed to address your digital needs and to expand your experience while using Opera mobile browsers.
