Opera, one of the most popular browser apps available on multiple platforms has just updated one of their browser apps for Android, Opera Mini, which now sits at version 14 and brings in a list of new features and languages for users. Alongside the new features and added language support, Opera Mini has gone through a number of changes over the past year ranging from app updates with improvements to the experience to a whole new logo to represent the Opera brand, all while giving the Opera Mini browser a new look and modernized design to keep things fresh for users.
While the design of the app hasn’t changed since the most recent visual tweaks, this most recent update bringing the browser to version 14 adds in language support for 13 Indian languages which includes Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Kashmiri, Malayalam, Marathi, Oriya, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu. With more languages in the Indian region now supported in the app, Opera is widening the potential user base for the browser on Android in the country which is continuing to grow the number of smartphone owners. No matter what language users choose to be their main, they can swap on the fly fairly easily from the settings menu at any time they wish, making this a great browser for anyone who speaks and reads multiple languages. While more language support is always a good thing it isn’t the only new thing about Opera Mini 14, as a handful of new features and improvements to the browser have also been added.
As of today, Opera Mini 14 now has a QR code reader and generator for anyone that may have the need to use one at any given time, and there is now in-app camera support for uploading files. Alongside these two new changes, Opera Mini has improved the success rate for direct downloads within the app, making it even easier and faster to download whatever it is users need. Opera has also improved the search capability by adding in a custom search engine per category so searching for stuff within the app should be a lot simpler and faster as well.
