Opera 32 beta released

  • Long time, no see. We know you've been waiting for a new release - sorry to keep you waiting. Opera 32 for Android is full of new features and improvements, so lets get started.

    Some of you might have tried the Opera labs build we sent out in late June introducing Add to Home screen. In the new beta, you will be able to add all of your favorite pages to the home screen of your Android device. To read more about it, check out https://dev.opera.com/blog/installable-web-apps.

    We've also continued improving the sync experience. This time around, we've introduced a way to sync your typed history across devices.

    In addition to this, we've added a new way to refresh the page by dragging the page down while you're at the top of the page.

    This release includes the following changes:

    • Add to Home screen
    • Synced typed history
    • Pull to refresh
    • New pulsing animation for the progress bar
    • High resolution images in the Discover feature
    • A Chromium upgrade to version 45
    • Various UI, stability and usability improvements

    The update has been pushed to Google Play and should be available very soon. Please download Opera 32 for Android and leave us your feedback. We hope you like it!

  • I notice it is way faster and snappier than 31 and 30. Good job Opera! :)
    A suggestion: please add an option to disable pull to update, as sometimes I (and maybe more people) accidentally trigger it :(

  • pls add support to rel="noreferrer" links opened in new window like in chrome.

  • @samuraj-jones: That looks like a bug! Thanks for letting us know. I've added it to our bugtracker.

  • Nice update, a few things though:

    • So I am browsing in Opera Beta and I hit home button. If I open Opera after that my screen/display flashes/blinks once. It hasn't done that before and it feels kinda weird.
    • When testing with incognito/private tabs and switching around using various apps. When I open Opera again i get a blank tab instead of the private one I had opened previously. This might be related to something I've seen in previous builds where tabs go blank and need to be reloaded. Not sure why it's done this way, esp if I was reading/viewing the last tab.
    • Anyway to shut off the new "pulsing animation"?
  • We will have the new tab gallary from Opera mini beta?

  • also night mode like in mini

  • mini got fullscreen mode a while ago, why isn't this available in opera beta yet?
    it's the one thing keeping me from switching over, and I've been waiting(and asking) for it for years.

  • I found another thing missing.
    opera doesn't allow windowed mode on samsung devices.
    adding this should be as simple as adding a line to the manifest file saying it's ok to open opera in windowed mode, the rest is all managed by touchwiz.

  • I cannot sign in into google account. Everytime I try to click log in button, opera shut down. I have informed about this from Report A Problem Section (previous version) but dont fixed yet.

  • @sumantaad Do you mean when you sign in to sync in Opera, or do you mean when you sign in on a Google page (for example gmail.com)? I just verified on my phone that both of those cases work.

  • Opera should provide some extra webrtc flags since disabling webrtc doesn't do anything. In the worst case Chrome Dev doesn't forward proxied IP for that matter.

  • @sumantaad Do you mean when you sign in to sync in Opera, or do you mean when you sign in on a Google page (for example gmail.com)? I just verified on my phone that both of those cases work.

    I mean for google (gmail.com) only.
    I don't have any problem with Opera for Android(stable) version. The problem occur only on beta. Build id:09 06 17

    Google (Search/services) has a mind of its own. E.g. Google search can work even when HTTP connectivity support ain't provided because it may use a built-in component, any other page loaded could be blank in this case. Current Beta may have a problem with Google not being a stable release.

    Dicemaster, hah noob, he doesn't know how how to access Fullscreen in Opera for Android! Simple: Settings > Tab Layout (Classic) > Fullscreen button in corner... :coffee: :lol: Anyway I think Pulsing Animation is for address bar w00t!

  • We have pushed beta 2 to Google Play with several stabilization fixes. It will be available shortly in Google Play!

  • Gmail sign in problem solved with beta 32.0.1953.96244. Thanks.

    that's not fullscreen.
    sure it hides the navigation buttons, but the android notification bar is still visible, and this only works in landscape mode.
    also, this same "fullscreen" mode with visible notification bar is activated automatically in any other layout if you scroll down.

    what I'm asking for is the fullscreen mode present in opera mini beta and the old opera mobile, which hides the notification bar.

  • Whoa, the fullscreen button went missing in the new update! Great update, the pulsing animation is just as I expected it, adds a nice touch! An option to list all tabs would be nice. @DiceMaster: Yeah, I guess.

  • @alienfxfiend, the fullscreen button should still be there in classic layout.
