Opera mini 9 beta 1 for Android

  • Hi all,

    After several beta releases, we finally released Opera Mini 8 for Android earlier today. As a way of celebrating this release, we’re also releasing a brand-new beta of Opera Mini 9 today, with some new features for you to play with.

    In this beta, we are introducing night mode, a commonly requested feature. Night mode in Opera Mini for Android is not just a simple on/off switch, it can also be configured to reduce eye strain when browsing in dark environments. You can enable this feature from the Settings menu.

    For those of you who are using synchronization, I am happy to announce that we are now also syncing open tabs.

    As always, thank you for being a part of our beta testing. Please leave a comment with any feedback you have for us.

    You can get the Opera Mini for Android beta here: http://opr.as/e1x

    Enjoy!

  • Opera mini team is on fire for android..

  • I like the night mode feature already... plus the eye strain... will give more feedback after awhile.

  • Installed alongside previous beta, is not kosher.

  • @custdemotest, the reason why it's installed alongside the previous beta is because the previous beta have been converted into final. If you update the old beta you should get the final version with the new nice red O icon.

  • Right, thanks!

  • Will you make some impovements for UI and gestures?

    Current issues are:

    1. There are still no way to sort tabs. Will help sometimes.
    2. Need option to stop UI elements (adress and navigation panels) auto hide and show. As for me - I hate this stuff on scroll up. Wish it happens only by menu button press, like in versions upto 7 (including).
    3. Page refresh on overscroll isn't good idea. We have button for it!
    4. Back/Next butons can be placed on left side of adress panel (on mobile view). They have to be somewhere!
    5. Giant traffic economy statistic also should have any flag to disable it.

    That is short list.

  • Can't get the sync tab feature to work....

  • just downloaded it. the text box bugs still remains, apart from that i dont have any problems with the ui. but i wished it migrated my cookies and saved logins and password from the new updated opera mini, as i now have to reenter my login to any site that i have an account with.

    the gestures are okay. since the reload button is far from my left hand, so i have become used to swiping down to reload.

    new gestures could be added.

    also add copy option for text in a text box. only "select text" and paste are available. so now i have to enter th textbox and use the normal select and copy method on android.it would be nice if i could quickly copy all text in a box by just long pressing it and select copy.

  • I am wondering why the New Opera Mini 8.0.1807 from Google Play asks for access to our phone contacts?

  • I cant download frm google play , plz give me new link
    tnx

  • @kevin009: Please see the "Read contact data" section on Privacy policy document for why Opera Mini needs this permission.

    @majid0074: You can find an alternative download link for Opera Mini 8.0 from http://www.opera.com/mobile/mini/android, unfortunately the beta is only available in Google Play.

  • Hi im enjoyin the new beta with night mode,opera works grt on my galaxy pocket neo:)

  • www.songspk.soy My Site Not Open Opera Mini Please Solve My Problem

  • AFTER SO MANY YEARS, THE INSTAGRAM IMAGES ARE WORKING! Congratulations...

    By the way, you must find a way to create a button for enable and disable night mode in the "O" menu... currently it's a bit too far to reach...

    Cheers, and keep up the good work.

  • Kindly provide Night mode option in the main browser menu.

  • Would prefer if night mode can be black background with white text not just dim the light. And i still can't sign in to my account.

  • Well, Instagram images are not working again. Too bad. 😞

  • Plz upload here itself don't give playstore link. ....

  • Great job, I love the browser but please, please bring back the feed reader like the previous Opera Mini had.
