Open links in external apps

  • Opera mobile is a great browser. But I find it quite inconvenient when opening some links in opera. Because opera cannot open links in external apps.

    Is there any way to open youtube links in youtube app or play store links in play store app?

  • What permissions have you set for Opera Mobile? You might need to go into your phone's settings, go Applications, find Opera Mobile, and view its app info. See if there's a "Clear defaults" option and then boot up Opera Mobile to see if it will prompt to let you pick what external applications you want (YouTube app, Google Play app, etc.) when clicking certain YouTube or Google Play links.

    If that doesn't work, then you may need to view the app info of the YouTube and Google Play apps themselves to see if you can clear their defaults.

  • I second this. When using other browser it'll ask me if I want to open the link in its application (e.g Play or youtube) or using the installed browser, but opera doesn't show that dialogue. And yes, i tried to clear Opera and Play defaults

    It opened on the browser both when tried with Opera and Chrome.

    Opera Mobile with Off-Road active prompts me to pick the external application to open that Google Play link. Opera Mobile with Off-Road disabled opens the Google Play link right in the browser.
