Opera on Monday announced the availability of version 61 of the Opera browser for Android. This version has added a set of new features that include an Integrated media player, WebSnap, and easy access to the QR scanner.
Let’s have a look at the features added to the new update:
Integrated Media Player
The headline feature in this release is a custom, integrated media player. According to Opera, this media player provides you with a smooth media experience and removes the need for third-party players. It includes Play Queue support so that you can watch or listen to your downloaded media in the order you like, while continuing to browse your favorite sites. It also supports picture-in-picture for multitaskers.
Easier Sharing With WebSnap
Opera has added a feature similar to the page snapshot tool called ‘WebSnap’. This tool enables you to snapshot the current page and add doodles, text, and emojis before sharing it with your friends. The snapshot feature can be easily accessed in the page context menu (the three-dot menu in the top-right).
Easier Access To The QR Scanner
With QR codes becoming more and more common in many markets around the world, Opera has decided to move the QR scanner to a more accessible position for easy access. It is now available directly in the search box on the start page, as well as on web pages. You can also create a handy shortcut on your device’s home screen by long pressing the Opera app icon and dragging out the QR scanning item. This makes installing a dedicated QR scanner app completely redundant.
Additionally, the company has made over 300 fixes in this release to deliver the best possible browsing experience to its loyal users.
