Opera Touch - Flow with more devices

  • 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

  • +1! wth?? This is a fantastic invention, but it's completely unusable if I can't have one central flow that I can add to from all my devices!

  • please, give us Opera Link back! 🙂

  • Yea, this is just a really missed opportunity. Such a shame, great features, but lack core functionality.

  • I totally agree with you!
    I love Opera touch (well, it could be better for usability) but I need flow to works with many devices.
    And I don't like the focus on search when I start a new tabs. Why two clicks to open a favourite site in the speed dial? It's a non sense

  • Opera has listened to us and made changes always. They just launched the new opera touch. Give them some time to implement our suggestions. I am sure they will.

  • Hello. We're working on the possibility of using multiple devices and it will be available in the near future. Please stay tuned.

  • +1 -- i have 3 android devices and a laptop .. i need to flow between all of em .. just like google chrome does.

  • @skamieniarz how is it going?

  • @korovushka We will know when it's released. They usually don't comment on features being developed.

  • +1
    I totally agree

    I use Opera in 1 android and 2 PC (home, work), and need this feature so soon

  • +1 such a great feature - what a horrible oversight to assume everyone has just one pc and one phone. Come on, let me use it on multiple devices!

  • I've reinstalled the app to see if things improve and, to my surprise, Opera Flow now works with more than one device! I tested with my smartphone and my Android tablet on my home PC, and Flow worked like a charm. Tomorrow I'm going to test with work PC, but it's great to see they listened us.

    Just out of pure curiosity: What were the reasons you have chosen Opera Touch over Opera on your mobile device?

  • @vince42 Telling the truth, Flow is a must have for me. And I just wanted change the default apps for a while. I do this from time to time.
    But being more specific, I'm a heavy user of Pushbullet, using dozens of times a day, and when Opera Touch was released, I bought the idea of the app but at that time it was still very unstable on my old LG G4, so I used it a week and uninstalled and returned to the Chrome + Pushbullet combo.
    In the meantime, I picked up a Samsung A8 and tested various browsers like Firefox (it has some good features but very slow), Microsoft Edge (same as the Firefox), Brave Browser, Yandex, Dolphin, UC Browser, Samsung Internet (they all lack the ability to sync with PC) and Opera for Android (which I droped because adblocker and some websites did not work properly). And today I decided to test the Touch again, and fortunately I saw that they removed the restriction of a single device.

  • @igorjmm Thank you, I got the picture. Never heard of pushbullet before, so thank you for the insight. 😉 I personally rely on bookmarks a lot, that's why I wondered how a browsing scenario would look like, where you don't miss this functionality. Thanks again for the explanation!

    Have you been able to connect two PCs?
