Opera didn't have a built-in option to open links in dedicated external apps like some other browsers do. However, since software and browser features are constantly being updated and improved, it's possible that Opera may have implemented this option in a newer version.
To check if this feature is available in the current version of Opera, I recommend you to do the following:
Update Opera: Ensure that you have the latest version of Opera installed on your device. Go to the Opera website or your app store to check for updates.
Settings: Open Opera and go to the browser settings. Look for any options related to link handling or external apps.
Search online: If you can't find the feature in the settings, try searching online for recent Opera updates or release notes. Look for any mention of the ability to open links in external apps.
Browser Extensions: Check if there are any browser extensions or add-ons available for Opera that provide the functionality you are looking for. Sometimes, third-party developers create extensions to add specific features to browsers.
If you can't find a built-in option or an extension that suits your needs, you might want to consider providing feedback to Opera through their official channels. Many software companies take user feedback into account when planning future updates and features.
Please keep in mind that my information might be outdated, and I don't have real-time browsing capabilities... So, I suggest checking Opera's official website or support forums for the most up-to-date information on the availability of this feature.
