Opera Mini

Opera Mini 50 gets fully revamped; mobile browsing never looked so good!

Today we are rolling out the new Opera Mini 50. The new version of the browser comes with a fully revamped user interface for more personalized and intuitive browsing, with faster access to your favorite features. This is the biggest upgrade Opera Mini has received in the last five years. 

Opera Mini was first launched fifteen years ago. Today, this small and powerful browser is the choice of hundreds of millions of people because it’s fully equipped with unique features, making it stand out from the rest of the mobile browsers available in digital app stores. These features include data compression, a download manager, offline file sharing, and a built-in ad blocker. 

New status bar: In Opera Mini 50 we added anew status bar which you can use to add a touch of personalization to your browsing experience. The status bar will give you greetings and hints during your daily browsing sessions, as well as keep you updated on what’s going on around you. It shows you notifications with breaking news, coming updates in the Opera Mini browser, and events from Opera partners happening around you. 

Easier overview of your data savings: Data savings has always been important for Opera Mini users. In Opera Mini 50, we have included a new data savings widget on the status bar that displays your real-time data savings. This comes in pretty handy when you want to view your data consumption at a glance. 

Personalized shortcuts: We know how important it is to have fast access to the features you love. Therefore, we have introduced a new navigation bar at the bottom of the screen where you can create shortcuts to those features without searching for them in settings. By default, you will be able to access the popular offline file sharing feature as well as offline articles and web pages. 

Three reasons why you should use Opera Mini 50 today!

  1. More browsing, less data: Opera Mini is by far the fastest and best data-saving browser available in digital app stores, and it lets you activate high or extreme data-saving modes. The extreme mode in Opera Mini is capable of saving an impressive 81% of your mobile data on average compared to other browsers like Google Chrome, which are only capable of saving an average of 9% of mobile data. 

    With Opera Mini you can browse nine times longer versus using mobile browsers without data compression capabilities. (source: Data saving test, Q3-19)

  2. Listen to your favorite music for free anywhere: Last year we partnered with Mdundo, a leading African music-sharing platform that allows you to listen to your favorite music on your mobile phone for free. By integrating Mdundo’s music catalog into Opera Mini, we are giving you access to your favorite music everywhere you go. 

    Every time you listen to an artist with Opera Mini and Mdundo you are also supporting local and independent artists, helping them increase their chances of being discovered by more people, generate more streams and downloads, and motivating them to keep making the music you love. Keep up the beat and enjoy your music while browsing!

    *The Mdundo integration in Opera Mini is exclusively available in Tanzania, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Ghana, Uganda, Zambia,  Mozambique, Angola,  Zimbabwe, Cameroon,  Rwanda, Malawi, Congo – Kinshasa, Namibia, Burundi, South Sudan, Sierra Leone, Botswana, Ethiopia

  3. Send and receive images, videos and music files – offline: Opera Mini is the only major browser that lets you share files with others without using mobile data. Thanks to its offline file sharing feature, you can transfer images, videos, and audio files to nearby devices at super high speeds using a safe and direct Wi-Fi connection. 

    Offline file sharing works with the popular download manager in Opera Mini. By combining these features, Opera Mini makes it easier for you to share files you have already downloaded from the web on your phone. You no longer need to navigate through your phone’s drive to send files.
