Opera for Android 41 released in beta channel!

  • Hey, folks!

    We are very happy to announce the release of Opera 41 beta.

    It has been a long time coming, but it is finally here! We have upgraded to the latest Chromium 54 version. It includes some overdue security, performance and stability improvements that we have been missing and will be going back to a release cycle closer to Chromium again. Sorry to keep you waiting!

    The update also brings a few more things that has been finished since the last release.

    First, we added support for voice search. A convenient way to search without having to fiddle with your keyboard. You can find it by clicking the search bar, tap the new microphone icon and speak!

    Many users have been requesting the option to clear their data and browsing history when exiting the browser. So we obliged. How to use it? Just close Opera via the Exit button, make sure to check the box in the Exit dialog to clear history and data and you’re home free.

    In addition to this we have unified the share experience to follow material design. This new share menu always sort your targets based on usage, so you will always have the apps you share with the most at the top.

    Finally, we know many of you still have questions and opinions about the new design and behaviour of the browser. Rest assured, we hear you.There are several tasks in process targeting the major pain points your feedback have uncovered. We aim to deliver these changes  at a steady pace in the upcoming releases.


    Opera 41 beta includes the following changes:

    • A Chromium upgrade to version 54
    • Voice search
    • Option to clean browsing data and history on exit
    • New fresh share menu
    • Improvements to news feed

    The update has been pushed to Google Play and should be available very soon. Please download Opera 41 beta for Android and leave us your feedback. We hope you like it!

  • Still on 37 here. Let's wait for the update to come, hopefully fast.

  • Apkmirror Version: 41.0.2246.110204, 41.96 MB for Android 4.1 and later

  • Thanks for the update and the new features. Waiting for those community points to be addressed as well. Amongst them the ability to import all items from a synced Speed Dial from another device.

    And a relevant bug to report: Tapping an item (that is located) inside a folder of a synced Speed Dial does not open it in the foreground as expected but in the background.

    P.S. And guys, please, "Auto-filling of forms on webpages", please :)

    Still no update available in Google Play Store. Could you look at it? Still stuck with 37.4 version...

  • @mrninko

    We are staging the release and we are not yet up to 100% so you may be in the unlucky percentage. However, this should be out for everyone during the day..

    Why is that done this way?

  • @mrninko since we are doing four Chromium upgrades (37 -> 41) at once we want to be a bit careful and observe the response to the update. We expect to go 100% shortly!

  • @operamilleson or @jonabellan

    There should be option in settings » default browser to set as default browser the one i've added additionally.

    Also, is there (or where) some info about: after exiting browser by exit button all data will be erased? because for me none was shows and everything was deleted. would be fine to inform users by pop-up window about that, hm?

    And as always many (none) of these (https://forums.opera.com/user/mrninko/posts) bugs/glitches/issues still not solved... nice :-/

  • SO, except for the beta Opera Browser 41, the latest stable version is 37??

    Yes, latest stable is 37.

  • Just got the update.

  • Just got the update.

    Then leave the feedback on GP, no one does until now. ) For me this update will draw after 37.0.2192.105088 beta. Installation process reach out 98% in 51 seconds and stall with or without a fresh install data deletion and stuff.

  • Then leave the feedback on GP

    Need to use it a little bit more.

  • ffs, permanent selection of external search engines (duck, yandex etc) has disappeared!
    and still no choice of languages.

  • Beta 41.0.2246.110204 Anddroid 5.11 Verizon Ellipsis 10 Tablet in tablet mode

    New Problems:

    Logins and password not remembered after update.

    Youtube through Youtube website no longer continues to play video's audio when moving to another tab or putting Opera in background.

    Partly Fixed:

    Login to Opera account on Opera forums site now logs you in, but leaves you at forum home, rather than redirect to original forum.

  • Additional to my prior message re forgetting logins/passwords:

    Opera beta remembered login for http://www.ghisler.ch/board/viewforum.php?f=22

    The other logins forgotten on install were okay once I signed on to their sites and told Opera to remember password (I expected this).
