OSLO, Norway, Aug. 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Aria, Opera's [NASDAQ: OPRA] new browser AI, is now available for all users of the Opera browser for iOS, making it accessible across all major platforms. A product of Opera's collaboration with OpenAI, Aria offers users a cutting-edge generative AI service for free. This service is enhanced by Opera's own Composer architecture, granting users access to real-time web results. Seamlessly integrated into the browser, Aria introduces an innovative paradigm for the future of web browsing.

"Aria, our newly-introduced and free AI solution, has already exceeded 1 million users," shared co-CEO Lin Song. "We're witnessing enthusiastic user engagement with AI tools, especially Aria. As a result, we are delighted to extend Opera's AI tool to our iOS users."

Aria amplifies users' creativity and productivity by leveraging the potential of AI. Based on Opera's own Composer infrastructure, Aria connects to OpenAI's GPT technology – further enhanced by additional capabilities, such as adding live results from the web. As an expert in both web navigation and browser functions, Aria facilitates AI collaboration in tasks such as information retrieval, text or code generation, and product inquiries.

With successful launches on Opera for desktop and Opera for Android, Aria's accessibility now extends to all major platforms, encompassing Mac, Windows, Linux, Android, and now iOS.

As AI arrives on Opera for iOS, it's essential to emphasize that the AI experience within Opera is entirely user-controlled. Users have the autonomy to opt in based on their preference for engaging with AI services. Once activated, Aria offers intelligent insights, innovative ideas, and responsive voice commands.

To use Aria – available in more than 180 countries worldwide, including the EU and the US – users must log in using their Opera account. If they do not have one, they can register here for free. Once done, users simply have to open the browser AI in the main menu and start exploring the new way of browsing.
