OSLO, NORWAY – September 7, 2023 — Opera GX, the browser for gamers, is taking your browsing experience to a new level with Aria, the browser AI here to answer your questions, write your code, engage in banter and help you conquer the digital realm. 

Aria is not your average AI – equipped with Opera’s proprietary Composer architecture, Aria can not only write code, but also taps into the real-time pulse of the internet, providing you with up-to-the-minute results that can answer all of GX users’ questions. With this new feature, Opera GX Early Bird users can now interact directly with a friendly browser AI who has all the latest gaming news and tips right at their fingertips. 

Go ahead, ask Aria anything: “Has Starfield finally launched yet?” “Why am I so bad at Armored Core 6?” “How can I kick off my streaming career?” or even “What’s the most effective way to express my disappointment in a game update without resorting to caps-lock?” You can even ask Aria to write you a custom character bio for Baldur’s Gate or give you the rundown on the latest seasonal update in Diablo IV. 

Hotkey-loving Opera GX users are also getting a brand new command line that allows them to use the ctrl+ / (Win) or the cmd+ / (Mac) keyboard shortcut to display an overlay and interact with Aria. Whenever a question comes to mind, they can use the command line to ask Aria a question and either interact with the browser AI’s response immediately in the sidebar or go back to browsing.

Aria comes all hooked up to Opera’s AI Prompts feature that was introduced earlier this year. Users can highlight any text in the browser to instantly summon contextual information and prompts that make you feel like you’re having a conversation with your browser. 

Unlike other browser AI solutions, Aria is a user-controlled experience – users can choose to opt in by opening the browser AI in the sidebar and log in or sign up for a free Opera account if they don’t already have one. Aria is now available in more than 180 countries including the EU, in Opera GX for Windows and MacOS. It’s also available in the flagship Opera browser on Windows, Mac, Android and iOS.  

In order to use Aria, enable “Early Bird” in settings. The use of Aria in Opera GX is free and only requires a login to your Opera account.
