What is an RSS feed?

An RSS feed is a web format used to serve regularly changing content. If a website you like has an RSS feed, you can add it into your reader and stay up-to-date with new articles without even navigating to the website itself. RSS feeds are typically used for news websites, blogs and podcasts.

If you’re interested in general tech news, I would suggest you subscribe to Mashable and the Verge. Advantages of using an RSS reader are that you no longer have to visit individual websites separately to get updates, and you will no longer miss out on the latest news or the newest episodes of your favorite podcasts.

The new RSS reader in Opera

Now, you can decide which news should appear in your RSS-based feed.

To use the RSS reader, all you have to do is to enter the news menu, click “+ add sources” and paste the URL into the search field. Once recognized as a valid source, it will be added to the newsreader. The feed can either be read in a timeline or stacked view.

How to set up the RSS Reader in Opera

Personal news right in your browser

The personalized news feed in Opera can help you get the latest news right in your browser. You can choose between your local news outlets and news from other countries. Decide whether you want to receive news about  entertainment, technology, travel and more. Only interested in the top news? No problem. The “Top 50” section will provide you with the 50 most recently trending stories of the day. In one of our previous posts, you can learn more on how to set up the personalized newsreader right in your Opera browser.

    RSS detector should be a native feature… how you can add a RSS reader without it is hard to understand to me…

    • You can try out the latest developer build. It’s already there.

        Oh, I didn’t know… I’ll wait to see it in the stable channel

        An it has not changed since the first O42 dev, so are you even working on it, or it is its final stage?

  • Gloriam

    I really prefer the old, recently removed from opera://flags news page, which worked much better even though it didn’t have RSS support, it was so much faster to get the news I wanted, simple choice of “Global news from gaming and technology”, sometimes the new news page stops showing news for no reason at all, removing news sources seem to help, but these are news sources added automatically by Opera itself, that worked just fine before.

  • RSS feed very good, thank for artikel

  • Checo

    Really nice!

    I like the feature so far. However, I don’t see either (a) a way to view these/synced across my desktop and iOS devices or if this isn’t possible, (b) export my feeds so I can use an iOS app without manually adding them. Is there a way to do either of these?
