Music Player in Opera browser Sidebar

Without relying on Chrome’s Media Controls, Opera now built their own player that allows to access and control following music services
  • YouTube Music
  • Spotify
  • Apply Music
To use the player in the Opera browser,

Click on the icon on the sidebar and choose a service to listen to music from.


When if any other open tabs in Opera are playing sound, the player pauses the music automatically and resumes once the sound from other tab stops or is paused.

When the Player is playing music, its sidebar icon turns blue. If the player is inactive, you’ll see the default icon.

Opera says the feature is still being developed and they’ll fix the bugs when they notice.
