we are thrilled to announce that towards the end of Q4-2020, we reached a new record in the user base of our flagship browser for Android. That’s nearly 80 million monthly active users (MAU) in Q4-2020, out of Opera’s global user base of 380 million MAUs. This means that this product has just about doubled in 2.5 years, something we are happy and humbled about. We’ve identified that the rapid growth in our user base has been mainly driven by two factors. 1) Android users are searching for alternative browsers to those that come preinstalled on their devices, and 2) Opera for Android offers a complete browser experience, where they can browse the web faster and more securely with an excellent and personal companion for their Opera browser on PC & Mac.
We are also thrilled to be rolling out the new version of Opera for Android today. In version 62 of the Opera browser for Android, we are making it easier for all users to identify and engage with Flow. When Flow was initially launched, only those who synced their Opera browsers with their PC or Mac were able to see Flow on the main menu. This has been changed so that Flow is now available by default on the main menu for all users.
Nearly 80 million users browse on their Android devices with Opera. Get to know more about why they chose Opera as their personal browser.
