If you are not able to see the news icon right away, here’s what you have to do:

  2. A menu to customize your start page will appear.
  3. Uncheck News and go back to the homepage. Now you should be able to access the personal newsfeed.

Yay! You are ready to go 🙂

Choose what’s interesting in the newsreader

By clicking on the newspaper icon in the left panel on your homepage, you will open a dialogue field. It will ask you which news sources you would like to get news from. Select the ones that interest you or get more options.

Add more sources to the personalized newsreader

When opening the newsreader, click on Add sources and choose more news from 14 different fields such as entertainment, technology, travel, news and more. You can also adjust your previous choices of news and delete sources you chose before.

What we really like about the personalized newsreader is that you can also add news sources from different countries. This way you can get information from the places that you are most interested in. 🙂

Top 50 news all in one spot

Click “Top 50” in the newsreader side panel to get access to top news picks for a selected country. The “Top 50” is separate from your personal feed, but you can easily add sources you like from it to your feed. 🙂

Download or upgrade the Opera browser and tell us what your favorite news sources are. You can also write us on Facebook or Twitter.


Cheers! 🙂
