Opera News App: This Newly Launched Software Can Save More Than 80% Of Data Usage

Opera Software recently announced the official launch of Opera News, a sleek app that shows local trending stories from top news sites and blogs, and entertainment videos such as Mark Angel comedy skits.

We were  all waiting for this app in a while now, after it’s announment last year and finally it’s here.

The AI-powered news app studies stories and videos clicked and watched by the user, then gets smarter with use to aptly recommend news and entertainment tailored for that user. It’s like a TV with all your favourite channels. Why jump all over the web looking for content when you can have it all together in place?

In addition to delivering great content, the company also claims Opera News can save up to 80 percent of mobile data use. This could be a far stretch but Opera has built a reputation for rolling out data-efficient browsers so it’s safe to assume this app can save users some data.

Africans love sports and culture

Opera News is addressing a strong demand for improved access to news and content. During its pre-launch period which saw over 100,000 downloads (on Playstore), Opera observed a strong appetite for local and international content, but the company has also seen that Africans love sports, especially football.

Users in Nigeria, Kenya, South Africa, Ghana and Tanzania enjoy browsing the web to read about their favorite hot topics such as sports, celebrities, arts and culture, politics and life-hacks. With Opera News, we bring a new type of tailored news experience to African users,” he adds.

Pop Up ads

While the app enjoys a 4.6 star rating from 371 reviews on the Google Playstore, ‘a Google user’ who gave the app 2 star, posted: “How much do you want to remove these annoying pop up ads?”

This may be the only drawback to the app.
