On Tuesday, Opera has launched a new version of its well-known mobile browser app, Opera Mini in India for iPhone and iPad users. The new version uses Artificial Intelligence that provides news 4 times faster than the previous version. Not only in English, this news feed is also available in Hindi, Tamil, and Gujarati.
Opera’s Artificial Intelligence uses real-time intelligence ranking, powered by deep learning and machine learning to find out users’ likes and dislikes and offer them news that they can connect with more in the “For You” section. The new version app allows users to choose the news location wise and sections as per their choice.
"The goal is to provide each user the ability to get their optimal content based on their interest, which is constantly evolving," said Cuautemoc Weber, Head of Global Accounts and Content, Opera Software. "This is also applied to bringing new information which perhaps the user would not have been able to gather from their traditional sources," Weber added.
The company designed the app to make it look more appealing, by changing the search and address bar color to red. It now brings forth that it is no more an ordinary address bar, but it also scans your QR (Quick Response) codes and allows you to customize your search engine.
This new feature is now available only in few countries such as South Africa, United States, Indonesia, Ghana, India, Nigeria, Kenya, and Tanzania. The company is now planning to extend its services to Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Russia.
