[Request] Android sms and calling integration

  • To put it simply, I wish to receive SMS (Texts) and phone calls though Opera GX (Windows 10 web browser).

    What intrigues me about this web browser is its unique attempt at maximizing productivity. I enjoy having FB messenger and Discord on an easily accessible side bar. I wish to add my phone's SMS Texts and Phone calls to a similar tab on the side bar.

    This web browser's strong focus on integrating multiple elements to a single interface would benefit greatly from SMS integration. Imagine working from home; you're corresponding with fellow workmates over your latest project. In FB messenger you need send a screenshot of a previous discussion from your SMS messages. Instead of pulling out your phone, you simply click to SMS on your sidebar in Opera GX web browser, take your screenshot and post.

    Meanwhile, you're writing your latest product review and you receive a phone call. Instead of pulling out your phone and stopping your productive work, you simply mute your music tab and click to SMS on your sidebar to accept the phone call hands free. With many modern workstations already possessing a built in mic with speakers and headphone jacks, such a feature would be commonly supported by most hardware.

    Android and Iphone integration:

    While Android is already working on native SMS and Phone call integration with windows 10, Apple currently is not. This leaves Opera GX in a unique place to bridge the gap in the market. With a cleaner 'more efficient' interface Android users will flock to Opera GX while Iphone users will have no ulterior option.
