Opera Touch - Flow with more devices

  • Well, I'm sure you want users to use your browser on every device. It's obvious.
    I really wanted to but how am I supposed to do so if your features do not let me?
    I think the new mobile browser is quite cool like on it's first days. But why can't I "FLOW" my mobile with my PC and laptop both? -.- Is it supposed to link only two devices? But you are aware we live in 2018 and people usually have more devices nowadays, aren't you? So I am sorry but I have to leave this browser again and come back to previous until it's fully considered.

    P.S. one more advice. Fix the google search automatically active after opening browser. I usually use browser to get to website which is on my main page, I don't want to SEARCH SOMETHING every time.

  • @mejki Touch opening in search mode is a feature and, in fact, one of its main points.

  • I have to agree. I tried Opera Touch and I love Flow feature but I use 3 PCs. Not being able to Flow through all of them makes it not very useful for me.

  • @mejki I agree. We need Flow to connect to more than 1 PC/Laptop

  • @mejki Ditto that. I use Opera on my home desktop, work laptop, MacBook and Android phone. Having a single flow for all my browsers will be great, otherwise it's useless.

  • I agree. Also, the ability to "flow" to other browsers via an extension would be great.

  • Cannot agree more. I use about 3 desktop/laptops daily because of work. It sucks so hard I can't flow to all 3 of them.

  • I'm using a laptop and an Android phone. Doesn't have problem with flow. But i gotta agree, flow needed to be flowing with more than one pc.
    Touch really good on one hand, but it could be much better if it have Opera Coast swipe to back and forth feature. Really helpful if it had that feature.

  • One of Flow's features it you do not need a Opera account to flow things between devices, but it would be fantastic if it worked with an Opera account aswell. If you are logged in to a Opera account you should be able to enable Flow with it and access Flow from all devices you log in with the same Opera account.

  • @firipu said in Opera Touch - Flow with more devices:

    Cannot agree more. I use about 3 desktop/laptops daily because of work. It sucks so hard I can't flow to all 3 of them.

    It would be best, if Opera had created a sophisticated system, where you could manage your bookmarks, speed dials and flows together.

    Unfortunately they decided to make bookmarks unavailable in Opera Touch, split speed dials per device without any management option and decided to make flow a new thing limited to two devices. I hope they will wake up and finally give us one unified sophisticated solution.

    Years ago Opera was well known for bringing cool new features and improved the browsing experience with each verison - nowadays I am quite afraid of every new version, as they neglect power features and tend to fix things that ain't broken.

    Well, hope dies last ... ^^

  • same here phone, tablet, 2x PCs... 😞 Flow is annoying at current state

  • @auenarel it might sound unfair, but Flow seems to be pretty useless as "standalone replacement for bookmarks" - just deactivated it.

  • It's a very good idea, it's an amazingly bad developing / implementation.
    I could not connect more smartphones. It should be basically and fast.
    Take the company an example of Firefox's great feature: Send Tab to (multiple!) Device !!!

  • +1 here. Useless when designed to pair only 2 devices.

  • I STRONGLY agree: furthermore, you could use the Flow to copy and transfer instantly texts and links between PCs, for me it could be an awesome feature.

  • multiple devices via single flow - without it its kinda useless feature

    make opera great again @_@

  • So, I completely agree with this! I actually shifted back into Opera today. I use the Note 8 and with Chrome removing their address bar at the bottom option, Opera Touch seemed to be the best option after some research for day to day use-ability. I was curious about the Flow feature also and shifted into Opera at my work setup as well.

    However, I am now consider looking at other options because when I reach back home, I both have a Desktop setup as well as a Macbook and Windows tablet that I keep switching between as required. I also use a Blackberry KeyOne for work purposes, and wanted Flow on that as well.

    I think the only way this feature would be a true success if we could add several more devices and some kind of search/ categorization/ filter (by date, originator) up-top.
    For the time being, I'll stick to Safari and Chrome on the computers, but still use Opera Touch for the phone.

  • has Opera officially answered in any way to this request?
    will they further develop Flow in the immediate future to work with more devices at once?

  • @peach1200 They usually don't answer requests.

  • +1 useless if I cannot see my flow messages in my 2 computers + phone
