The browser is called Opera R5 and its video calling tool supports Zoom, Google Meet, and Microsoft Teams.
The Opera browser has released a new version of its browser that will allow users to make video calls from a pop-up window.
Its name is Opera R5 and it was launched on Thursday, June 24. It is a browser that not only brings the option of video calls but also other new features such as greater integration of music or ‘pinboards’ to organize, save and share content.
Since the pandemic began, the use of video calls has increased progressively in the last two years, something that the browser will try to take advantage of so that its users use this form of communication through its platform.
This information was released by Opera through a statement in which it explains that 65% of users have spent more time connected during the last year.
According to data provided by the company itself, 57% of users have accessed video call platforms in recent months through their browser, which is why it decided to incorporate the tool into its browsing service.
The new Opera R5 will allow making Zoom, Meet or Teams video calls through the browser
The browser’s video call window works independently and extracts the video from the navigation tab so that users do not have problems when switching from one window to another and the video remains visible, something that will make multitasking much easier.
In addition, the tool allows configuration settings and one of the options is that the floating window becomes transparent, allowing users greater ability to maintain contact with the call while having greater visualization.
Other Opera R5 features
Video calls are not the only new feature in this new version of Opera. Another feature is ‘pinboards’, a virtual wall where users can visually collect web pages, links, and notes and share them with others.
To share a ‘pinboard’ you only need a link so that others can see everything that the owner shares and they can react to the content using emojis.
