Opera has just rolled out an updated version of its desktop browser for macOS, introducing a new Pinboards feature, improved videoconferencing, better music streaming experience, a new supportive design, and much more.
Opera 77 codenamed R5 introduces a brand-new video conferencing popout feature that works with Google Meet, Zoom, and Microsoft Teams. Video conferencing popout pops the video out of the tab and keeps it on top of other tabs.
This happens automatically whenever you’re switching to another tab and video pops in when you switch back to the video call tab. With the new R5 release, the tab with the active video call is also now marked with a red bar to make it easier to spot.
The new Pinboards feature serves as a virtual pinboard that lets users collect websites, images, links and notes in visual form and share them with others, regardless of the device they access it from.
“Whether it’s a group trip to Mallorca, a collection of gaming articles, home redecorating inspiration, shopping wishlist or anything else, we want our users to be able to share it with other people and get their reactions – without the need to install new apps or going through the tedious process of creating accounts,” said Maciej Kocemba.
Opera has previously offered native access to Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Telegram, and VKontakte, and now, you can also use Instagram and Twitter directly from the sidebar as well.
