- Browser AI Aria is now available across Opera for Android and Opera for desktop browsers
- Aria is a free service giving users access to a popular GPT tool paired with live results from the web
Oslo, Norway – June 22, 2023 – Aria, Opera’s new browser AI, is now available for all users of the Opera browser for Android. A result of Opera’s collaboration with OpenAI, Aria affords users free access to a leading generative AI service – expanded through Opera’s own Composer architecture – with access to live results from the web. Natively built into the browser, Aria marks a new type of browsing experience for the future of the web.
“AI has marked a profound and rapid change in our lives. How we work, how we acquire information, what we expect from our browsers: everything is changing,” said Stefan Stjernelund, VP Product, Opera for Android. “We’re extremely excited to put the potential of AI in everybody’s pocket, so that users can have a native AI tool like Aria right there when they’re on-the-go.”
AI tools have become increasingly popular among people looking for productivity apps. Often these apps include significant limitations, such as requiring payment to use the AI service. Aria, however, is available in Opera mobile for Android and Desktop browsers for free.
Aria allows users to enhance their creativity and productivity by harnessing the power of AI. Based on Opera’s own Composer infrastructure, Aria connects to OpenAI’s GPT technology – further enhanced by additional capabilities, such as adding live results from the web. Aria is both a web and a browser expert that allows users to collaborate with AI while looking for information, generating text or code, or getting their product queries answered.
Opera’s Composer infrastructure is also easily expandable. Composer allows Aria to connect to multiple AI models and in the future will expand by integrating additional capabilities such as search services powered by Opera’s key partners. All this innovation will be accessible through a unified and coherent user experience.
And it all now comes to Opera for Android, the company’s powerful and secure flagship mobile browser. The platform for mobile boasts a range of user-friendly features such as built-in free VPN and VPN Pro services and a built-in ad blocker – making it perfect for those who seek a seamless and secure browsing experience.
Not only that, but the AI in Opera is a user-controlled experience – users have the choice to opt in or not, depending on whether they want to engage with AI services. But if they do, users will discover a whole new way to browse, as Aria can provide smart insights and answers, fresh ideas, and respond to voice commands at will.
When users open links with Aria, a small Aria Chat bubble will appear in the browser with the new tab. From here users can easily return to the ongoing conversation with Aria. New links in the same chat will be opened in new tabs, which makes it easy for users to jump around and compare information in a browser interface without having to look for the AI feature tab in a browser – or opening a new app.
Aria is additionally now available in Opera One – Opera’s completely redesigned flagship browser.
To use Aria – available in more than 180 countries worldwide, including the EU – users must log in using their Opera account. If they do not have one, they can register here for free. Once done, users simply have to open the browser AI in the main menu and start exploring the new way of browsing.
So harness the power of AI and revolutionize your browsing – download Opera for Android today!
