Opera’s Latest Browser Features WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger & Telegram Integration
If you are tired of picking up your phone just to reply to a simple message, then Opera’s latest Reborn browser for the desktop might interest you in a lot of ways.
Opera Bakes WhtasApp, Facebook Messenger & Telegram Right into its Desktop Browser
Apart from a solid set of features, Opera is expanding itself on the social media front by baking in essential IM outlets right in its browser. Namely, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Telegram, users will be able to chat away straight from the sidebar without having to pick up their phone.
Browsing and chatting simultaneously is cumbersome and inefficient now, as you need to switch between tabs when responding to a message. We believe this needs to change. That’s why we bring you Opera Reborn, the first browser to allow messengers to reside within your browser, without the need to install any extensions or apps.
This is a rather interesting move from Opera, given how much we spend our time inside a Web browser when we are using our notebook or desktop computer. To explain the motive behind this move from Opera even further, here’s a quick little video from the company itself.
If you are unaware, the new Opera Reborn browser takes a lot of cues from the concept browser the company released a while back, called Neon. Basically, Opera wants your browser to be the one place you should go to have all your needs sorted out. But back then, Neon was only a concept browser. Now though, with the release of Reborn, it’s clearly evident that Opera has serious plans to give its browser a massive boost on the desktop.
Coming back to WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Telegram, all these services can be accessed straight from the browser’s sidebar, as mentioned above. But the great thing about it is that you can drag and drop files and images into the IM window to send them over to someone else. This way you can rest assure that everything is streamlined, and you are not pushed out of the browser at all in any given time.
