Opera 33 - Now featuring video optimization and brand new icons

  • Hey, folks!

    We are happy to announce the release of Opera 33. This version features the new Opera brand for all icons. We've made some changes to how we handle videos, too. Check it out and let us know what you think.

    For those of you that like getting your content faster, we've added support for optimizing video so you see less buffering and save on data. The video controls have also been revamped with a new, modern look.

    The pull-to-refresh feature that was introduced in the previous version has now made its way to the Discover feature.

    This release includes the following changes:

    • New icons
    • Video optimization
    • Updated video controls
    • Pull-to-refresh the Discover feature
    • A Chromium upgrade to version 46
    • Various UI, stability and usability improvements

    The update has been pushed to Google Play and should be available very soon. Please download Opera 33 for Android and leave us your feedback. We hope you like it!

  • Thanks:)

  • @operamilleson I don't believe that you didn't fix folder issue reported in 33 beta version and release it with this annoying bug! Are u kidding us???

  • Hello together,

    first thanks for this great Update guys :)

    What I am still missing now:

    • Phishing-Protection
    • An Option to automatically disable the Opera Turbo function when I am in a WIFI...
    • Maybe Addons

    Following Question: When Opera Turbo is enabled is it for my Browser-Data like an encrypted VPN-Connection?!

    THX :)

  • Hello,

    I have a very strange when typing text this new :

    o some spaces are sometime added, I have to delete them
    o when deleting the end of a , or doing some corrections, it sometimes delete the entire word
    o when there is some text in square brackets, if you want to add a new caracter, the entire content is automaticaly

    It is extremely annoying, I've left Opera for the moment, I can't waste my correcting the browser's mistakes.

    Thanks.

  • I cannot use Opera to watch videos anymore. Every notification pauses the video and it is painful. Please let me turn that off, I have it turned off on all my music players.

    The new icon is 3D when all of my other icons are Flat and 2D. The icon looks absolutely awful mixed in with all those icons.

    The new video player stands out in a bad way - why the change? The stark white contrasts poorly with the black video background.

    But seriously, you NEED to stop pausing the video for notifications. For years Opera handled video playback by letting notifications play on top of the video. That's why I used Opera. If you don't change this I'll have to find a new browser. I cannot, and I stress CANNOT, use this browser if you will pause my videos every time I get a notification.

    I. Hate. It.

  • Oh, and I am disappointed there is still no option to turn off "pull to refresh". That needs to go.

    I agree with you, and more generaly it would be good not to see all theses new features being imposed version after version.

  • I don't use "new feeds" at all. There should be option to turn the off completely!

  • Hey all,

    We just pushed an update to Google Play that should address the black tiles issue. If you were having trouble before please try the new build.

  • Do you know if an autocorrection feature, that could explain my problems, have been added to Opera 33 ?
    I've reverted to Opera 32 for now, Opera 33 is unusable for me.

    Can you provide any feedback on the other issues brought up? It often feels like you guys ignore your users. If you have no plans on letting Notifications play alongside my videos instead of pausing them - as Opera used to for years - I will not be able to use this browser.

    Hey @thehyecircus,

    We try to keep an eye on the forums, but the main purpose of this forum is for the users of OfA to communicate. Even though we don't always respond to all your comments you can be sure that someone in the team has seen it.

    If you want to report a bug you can use the https://bugs.opera.com/wizard/mobile page and it will be reported in our bug tracking system.

    Regarding your question about video, I'll talk to one of the guys and try to get back to you why the behavior changed.

  • I would appreciate getting the video playback notification issue fixed. And an option to turn on/off pull down to refresh. And for some feedback on the icon to be presented, as it is completely out of place on my phone. I am going to have to change the icon manually. I know it's Android and it gives me that power, but I'd rather the people at Opera to look at the Android icons and match theirs to it.

    Sorry for being critical. I have used Opera Mobile since 2008 and I am heavily invested in the product across multiple Phone OS's, so I do not want to see anything negative happen to it.

    I would like to see more options for Opera, such as an option for pull down to refresh. Options make every user happy.

    That´s funny because I´ve written review in Google Play about issues with Opera (folders) yesterday. I wrote that it has been reported via mobile bug tracking system (in app´s settings) and forum and the write back "what?, when?, which andex?". So it looks like to me that these bugreports are read randomly otherwise they would know :/

  • As I've stated on the PlayStore and via the bug reporting service (ANDEX-28739) entering any text in a password field on any website in the two builds released yesterday results in a 'format not recognised' pop-up - pasting the password in will work, but this is a somewhat tedious procedure. Obviously with Opera's excellent password manager, it's not a problem everywhere, but some banking sites won't allow you to save your login.

  • there´s ISSUE when you wanna become tester in Google Play apps. when you click on button to become tester it just open new window and reload page, but it doesnt allow you to become tester. seems opera is not compatible with Google Play sites... this is long going issue which has been reported many times before, but still this glitch persist...

  • Opera 33 is lagging a lot while swapping between history, speed dial and discover!

  • Unable to zoom in on pages that have a video frame embedded beyond the size of the video frame even when the video frame is off screen since the new update. Also what happened to the download button when the switch to the new player controls was made?
