Opera for Android 46

  • We are happy to announce the release of Opera for Android 46 (46.1.2246.127339).
    We’ve added 3 of the most demanded features in this release, Night mode, QR code reader, and UI theme. Besides these features, we’ve also made improvements in various features.

    Change log for this version:

    • Chromium 63
    • Night mode
    • QR code reader
    • UI theme settings: Light, Dark, and Red
    • Private mode indicator
    • Address bar URL autocompletion
    • Copy/Paste URL suggestion
    • Refreshed Bookmarks UI
    • Refreshed offline pages UI
    • Trending searches settings
    • Long tap menu: Search by Image

    I’ll reveal this already, but we are fixing the password manager feature now and it will be available in the next version (Opera 47). If you want to try out the latest features and bug fixes, you can always try our beta version.

    Please try the new version and leave a comment with any feedback you may have for us.

  • I assume, that this version of the Opera also has never been tested on non-touch devices such as Android TV Box, controlled via PC keyboard and PC mouse.

  • @161005d64 I'm not exactly sure that Opera is made for TVs.

  • "Long tap menu: Search by Image"

    Please can someone explain how it works?

  • @zersch Long tap on a image and you will see an entry to search for that image on Google.

  • Is it just me or has "full screen" mode (on demand) been removed in v46?

    Full screen (as in removing upper and lower bar) when scrolling down is nice (but was already there in v45), but doesn't help if the page can't be scrolled at all.

    I don't see any "full screen" button in v46, had to go back to v45 (with all the pain that comes with it: reconfigure and re-setup the whole thing because "downgrade" is not allowed).

    Did I just didn't see the button?

  • @op-us

    We haven't changed anything in the fullscreen mode settings in 46. If it's ok, can you share a screenshot with the fullscreen button (v45) and current (v46)? Maybe we have broke it unintentionally.

  • Thanks for the reply.

    I re-checked. First on another phone not to wreck my fully set one again.

    Result: No difference between v45 and v46 regarding the "full screen button" on the other one.

    Reassured by this I went to update the first one too, again.

    Result: No "full screen button". The screen size is slightly smaller than on the test phone, but that should not make any difference for Opera v45 vs v46.

    So I just checked if the display orientation might have to do something with it. Changed it from fixed on landscape to automatic and turned the phone - and back.
    Result: Now the "full screen button" is displayed again in v46 on the first phone, too.

    Strange behavior. But glad I was able "fix" it.

    So, thanks again for your reply.

    Btw: As for the "look" of it: The button was just missing and all the others evenly spaced over the bottom bar. As there was now one button less to accommodate there was a little more space between all the buttons ("back", "forth", "home", "tabs" "opera/menu") compared to the situation including the "full screen button".

  • @op-us

    Thanks for checking and carefully observing our browser UI and behavior.

  • @miyukiwork After all those problematic versions of the last 2 years this is an excellent release. You 've managed to implement many suggestions from the community and made it aestheticaly and ergonomicaly solid. Congratulations! 🙂

    I agree! Opera has been very responsive to user feedback and must be commended for that. Opera for Android has improved significantly. Things were so bad a year or two back I stuck with using v37 and tried out other mobile browsers. I'm now happy with Opera again.

  • I like the Dark Theme and some things of the new UI but I still miss the "Recently Closed Tabs" menu in Tablet Mode. I still have Opera 43 on my mobile because I use that option a lot.

  • @avmon

    Thanks for your input. We'll discuss if we can put back this feature again in the next release.

  • Opera for Android has an out-of-date Chromium, stable version of Chromium 66 and here only Chromium 63.
    Opera Desktop has 53 version and Opera for Android 46.
    The video playback works very poorly, and after rewinding the video player gives an error, in Google Chrome for Android everything is fine and rewinding also works.
