Opera Software announced plans to integrate AI-generated content services, including the ChatGPT chatbot, into its web browsers for desktop and mobile devices
Opera enters the generative AI market with new features in browsers and content apps
Opera Software today announced the upcoming integration of AI-generated content (AIGC) content services into its desktop and mobile browsers. The company is also taking steps to expand its existing artificial intelligence program at AIGC for its browser, news and gaming products through in-house solutions and new as well as existing partnerships.
New AI-based services are changing the way we interact with products. Interest in AI services has skyrocketed, with the number of ChatGPT users recently surpassing the 100 million mark in record time. Opera’s upcoming AI integration will complement current capabilities that provide direct access to the most in-demand platforms on the web, such as TikTok, Telegram and WhatsApp.
Opera co-CEO Song Lin said:
In our more than 25 year history as a company, we have always been at the forefront of innovation in the browser industry. Whether it’s inventing tabs for the browser or giving our users built-in access to generative AI tools, we’re always pushing the limits of what’s possible on the web. After a wave of mainstream interest in generative AI tools, we believe it’s time for browsers to step up and become the gateway to the new AI-powered Internet.
Per Wetterdal, Head of Strategic Partnerships and AI Ecosystem, said:
We view the rise of generative intelligence as the beginning of a new future in which developers of consumer applications such as Opera can create new experiences based on AI platforms. We’re excited to see solutions like Google Bard roll out quickly, and we’re starting to build and implement new web browsing experiences that were unimaginable until recently.
New features of Opera powered by AI
Opera plans to add popular services with content created by artificial intelligence to the sidebar of the browser. In addition, the company is working to enhance the web browsing experience with features that will interact with new experiences powered by generative AI. Among the first features tested is a new “Shortcut” button in the address bar, which will be able to use AI to create short descriptions of any web page or article.
Internet users are constantly surrounded by content in quantities that cannot be processed. Thanks to generative AI, which will help to create written materials faster, content will become more and more. In addition to providing its users with access to AI services such as ChatGPT, Opera also decided to look at this possibility from the other side and develop an AI solution that filters all content and summarizes it for users in an appropriate way.
Krystian Kolondra, Opera’s EVP of Browsers and PC Games, said:
Opera believes that with the advent of artificial intelligence solutions for text, image and audio generation, and in countless other forms, we are on the cusp of a new era of creativity on the web. That’s why we’re changing the browser so that our users can take advantage of all the innovative resources and reach their full potential.
