In terms of market share, Opera is one of the smaller players, but its ideas are sometimes sensational. For example, let’s take Opera GX, a gaming browser, or transferring files between devices in Opera Touch. Another exciting feature is now entering Opera Mini, which became the first browser with support for offline file sharing.
The new feature lets you share photos, videos, and audio without an Internet connection. How does it work? The answer is simple. Opera Mini creates a secure, private network connection between devices via a direct Wi-Fi connection. This ensures successful file transfer at high speed – 200 times faster than Bluetooth. Once your Wi-Fi connection is established, you can be sure it won’t be interrupted unless you decide to terminate it.
To share or receive files, go to your browser settings and select the desired option. Opera Mini will provide the QR code to be scanned by the download device, and the connection is established. Offline sharing saves you money when you’re using mobile data. It also works with the download manager in Opera Mini. This makes it easier to share files you’ve already downloaded, and you don’t need to search for them in your phone’s memory.
Opera Mini is known as the first browser to provide a full web experience for millions of phone users with its unique ability to save 90% of mobile data.
If you want to try out the new Opera browser, you can download it from Google Play store (for Android devices).
