Opera 34 for Android released!

  • We are happy to announce the release of Opera 34.

    This is a lighter release in terms of features, but rest assured that we have worked hard on fixing bugs, increasing performance and improving existing features.

    We do want to mention the new Force enable zoom setting. This allows you to zoom on all pages by overriding sites' settings. It's useful for pages that don't allow zooming. Read our blog post for more information.

    There have also been improvements done to performance. We've heard what you've said and focused on identifying and improving the problem areas.

    The new version also includes a Chromium upgrade to version 47 and various UI, stability and usability improvements.

    The update has been pushed to Google Play and should be available very soon. Please download Opera 34 for Android and leave us your feedback. We hope you like it!

  • Thanks for the update, Opera is getting better & better...

  • Excellent release, the password bug (when entering text with a mobile-style keypad) from the last version has been fixed and the 'force zoom' is most useful. Pity that the 'pull to refresh' is still present, but hey, it's still head and shoulders above all other browsers.

  • Not had any issues with it so far. Personally I like the pull to refresh and use it on a regular basis. I really don't understand why people don't like it? Are people somehow accidentally pulling to far and ending up refreshing or something? It's never happened to me.

    Love it too but sometimes i pull it down and page is reloading...

  • good mister..

  • If there were a window to 'manage' bookmarks, it would be optimal! Sometimes finger slips and swipes & accidentally deletes bookmarks, so I have to be extra-cautious /w that. As for the new version, it's a whole lot faster! Maybe it was cause my tablet ran out of disk space I don't know, but this time it's quicker, esp. in navigating to the Speed Dial. :)

  • Why scroll button is gone, for me, it is useful once

  • "Text wrap" is not consistent after this update, sometimes the page has to be reloaded to make it work.

  • Couldn't play video... Why? The default browser does play the video... Any video.

    Device: Xiaomi Redmi Note 2, Miui 7

    If You blocking permissions in miui7 then unblock in opera audio focus permission and video will be played.

  • The text wrap function stopped working :awww:

    The function is OK, but if it is possible to do it by mistake probly it should be an option. Is like one has to be careful and look for the side scrollbars to disappear or the site logo at the top to know to stop scrolling and not trigger the refresh

  • Opera is crashing constantly for me. I had to uninstall it because it started to crash on repeat as soon as I open it.

    Not sure if related to history entries / history sync. (A suspicion.)

    I give up for now, I'm spending some time with Yandex browser.

    Teu to clean all data of Opera.

  • How about force zoom out feature? Because i can't zoom out on icloud.com website in desktop mode

    Would be nice too

  • @rafaelluik that's bad.. After which action does it crash? When starting? Opening a new tab? We've looked at history for the next beta and made some adjustments to reduce the load. Hopefully this will address your problems.

  • I'm also having crash problems, but I got a new phone for Christmas and don't know where the problem lies. Running the latest stable Opera for Android, on a Samsung S5 mini (v4.4.4). On opening opera I get the message 'Unfortunately Opera has stopped' and the option of sending a report, which I've done twice now but not sure where it goes. Most of teh time it is fine, but once it happens it will do it over and over. Clearing the cashe/ram doesn't fix it. The first time I had to re-install to fix, the second time it managed to recover on it's own somehow (but I had lost the wifi connection, so maybe the fact it couldn't restore itself made it work..?). No other apps are crashing like this, including opera mini.

    As a side note, having re-installed it, it treated my sync as a new entity instead of just picking up where it left off (I had to add all speed-dials again, and delete the old entry). Would be nice it knew it was the same install on the same phone and restore everything.

  • The plot thickens, it failed to start again as soon as it had wifi (I had mobile data off the whole time too). It's as if it crashes when it tried to restore the last session. Any way I can prevent it? Restarting the phone didn't help either. It's also now happened with Opera Mini, but recovers better, and only appears to kill the tab that crashed (Amazon and ebay on separate occasions). However, it only crashes with Mini when I'm in turbo mode, not extreme mode. So then, there appears to be an issue with opera turbo and either android 4.4.4 or Samgsung's version of it. I'm guessing by the lack of other people with the issue, it'll be turbo and Samsung. For now I'm using mini on extreme mode.
