Opera Mini Becomes The First Browser To Introduce Offline File Sharing

Published

on

Opera Mini

People can now send and receive files without the need for dedicated file-sharing apps.

The popular Opera Mini browser is now the first major browser with offline file sharing. Hundreds of millions of Opera Mini users can now transfer images, videos and audio files between nearby devices at super-high speeds, without being limited by slow mobile networks or using their mobile data. With the new, fast and secure offline file sharing feature in Opera Mini, there is no longer any need to download a dedicated file sharing app.

The native file sharing feature in Opera Mini can transfer files at Wi-Fi speed which is up to 200 times faster than Bluetooth.

“Opera Mini is the mobile browser of choice for more than a hundred million people, ” said
Krystian Kolondra,, Head of Browsers at Opera. “With the new offline file sharing feature,
Opera Mini users can now choose to share files at high speeds with people in their proximity,
without worrying about low speeds or expensive mobile data”.

How offline file sharing works

Offline file sharing and its accelerated file transfer speed are made possible through a direct
Wi-Fi connection which Opera Mini establishes seamlessly with nearby devices. This means
that Opera Mini creates a temporary private network which provides a fast and secure transfer of files between devices.

To start sending or receiving files, go to File Sharing on the menu and choose to Send or Recieve. Opera Mini will display a QR code for the nearby device to scan, connecting the devices.

Once a file is successfully transferred, the sender will be notified and the receiver will be able to access the file in the Received tab shown in Opera Mini.

Downloads ready to be shared

Opera Mini features a unique download manager located in the browser menu. The download manager helps users identify their downloads from various websites, and accelerates the download speed. The new offline file sharing feature provides Opera Mini users with a unique combination of faster browsing, faster downloads, and faster sharing.

Opera Mini – The world leader in data savings

With its small size, unique features and data saving capabilities, Opera Mini is the popular browser of choice for more than one hundred million people. Its data compression is capable of reducing the amount of data used when browsing to as little as 10% of its original amount. This means faster browsing when on slow networks and fewer data consumed than with any other browser.

The latest data compression test presented by Opera, in the State of Mobile Web 2019, revealed that the extreme mode of the data compression technology in Opera Mini is capable of saving up to 90% of mobile data. These results mean that people are able to browse up to nine times longer on the same data package with Opera Mini compared to other browsers with no data compression.

“Opera Mini is specially crafted for markets with limited network conditions and has industry-leading data-saving capabilities. We are proud that it is the first browser to use offline file
sharing, expanding the way people interact with the Opera Mini browser, ” said Kolondra.

The new file-sharing feature in Opera Mini is a great complement to the already popular data compression mode in the browser. People who need to share files are now able to save even more by sharing them offline without any data costs. This means they spend even less of their data package and are able to save more money.

Opera keeps improving your online experience

With the new offline file sharing feature, Opera is continuing to improve your experience on the web by adding new creative features to its mobile browsers. The Opera Mini browser today comes with features like ad-blocker, night-mode, and an intelligent newsreader, all of which are provided in a small download of less than 10mb. Through new features, Opera Mini provides people with faster and safer navigation on the web, major data savings, and access to both online and offline content. The addition of offline file sharing to Opera Mini is part of Opera’s strategy to create tailored mobile products that adapt to the real needs of people across different markets.

Fashion And Music: Teflon Flexx Serves Us Both

Published

on

Music celebrities and designer collaborations have altered the course of fashion, though good examples of this relationship are few. The effects of these unions have been very significant. Outcomes include Jean Paul Gaultier’s whirlpool corset dress worn by Madonna on her 1990 Blonde Ambition tour, which subsequently contributed to the trend for wearing bra tops and less clothing. Grace Jones’s collaborations with the art director Jean-Paul Goude, who in the 1980s rendered Grace Jones’s body a fashion object, made groundbreaking music videos and advertisements for various products. However, Grace Jones’s haircut became a major trend; it became known as a “high top” when copied by young black youth. Here in Ghana reigning Unsung Artiste of the year at the VGMA 2020 Teflon Flexx also known as the SOG is gracing our screens with his beautiful traditional apparel.

Teflon Flexx a Ghanaian-based Afrobeats artist, who hails from Sandema, Wiaga in the Upper East Region is gradually gaining his grounds in both the music and fashion space after starting music two years ago with his debut EP ‘Village Boy in the suit.’ He is distinguished from other northern artistes due to his strong fashion sense and style of music, which has earned him the name ‘Sound Of Greatnes’s (SOG).’ The relationship between fashion and popular music is one of abundant and mutual creativity. Reciprocal influences have resulted in some of the most dynamic apparel visualizations ever created in popular culture. The culture of dressing is inextricably tied down to a person’s identity and gives spiritual, intellectual, and emotional distinction from others.

Fashion and music have had and still have a tight relationship. As music is becoming more mainstream, it is inherent in Ghanaian/African artists not to drift from their cultural heritage but position themselves in a strategic position to synergize the Ghanaian fashion heritage in the way they dress. Ghanaian musicians just as their counterparts will continue to have such a close relationship with fashion, these two will not separate anytime soon.

What has always been missing in our Ghanaian music industry is the fair sense of musicians propagating their local cultural heritage forgetting it has tremendous rippling effects on all facets of the local economy of their Country. Kanye West, Drake, Rihanna, Pharrell Williams, and several others have actualized the American fashion sense and today own popular brands that have influenced the world in their sense of fashion. Today, not only do they earn billions of dollars from endorsing popular brands, they have succeeded in corrupting the style of dressing of African/Ghanaian artistes.

There is beaming hopes of the upliftment of the Northern Ghanaian culture, kind courtesy of the fastest rising Ghanaian Musician Teflon Flexx with brand name STEW GANG who is obviously enthused with his culture. What makes him different from others is despite his rich international fashion sense associated with his brand, he equally slays in his fitting traditional outfits on most occasions. Teflon Flexx showcased the rich Northern culture at the just ended VGMA and also for winning the Unsung Award category, he was all glammed up in his recent music ‘Oluwa’ visuals. He has been on major platforms with trendy designs and looking dapper at events.

Teflon is equally a music gem whose hard work in the music studio spreads wide across the globe when dropped, he has served music lovers with bangin music projects like, ‘ No foreplay’, ‘ Eskebelebe’ which he featured DopeNation, ‘Madina’ featuring DJ Wobete.

The artiste and the music pride of the North is getting us deets on his forthcoming banger which features AMG Medikal, the title of the song has not been communicated yet but judging from the musical history of the dapper artist the speculation is, it is going to be a club banger.

We can’t wait for the hot tune coming from the leader of the stew gang.

Greatness is coming 🤞🏽
