Opera’s Aria Now Summarizes Web Pages on Android Devices

Opera has enhanced the functionality of its in-browser AI assistant, Aria, by introducing a new feature that allows the tool to summarize text-based web pages on Android devices. This development was announced on Monday, May 6th.

The summarization capability is designed to condense content such as news articles, blog posts, and research papers into brief summaries that typically fit on a single screen, aiding users in quickly grasping essential details of a topic.

The process to activate this feature is straightforward. Users need to navigate to any text-based web page within the Opera Android browser, tap the three dots located in the top right corner of the interface, and select the “Summarize” option adjacent to the Aria icon. Following this, a chat interface with Aria will appear, providing the condensed summary of the content.

To utilize this new summarizing tool, users are required to update their Opera browser to the latest version available for Android. Additionally, they must either log into an existing Opera account or create a new one to access the feature.

Since its launch last year, Aria has functioned comparably to other AI search companions, featuring a chatbot-like interface that serves as an alternative for users seeking answers without having to search the web manually.

Opera has continuously developed Aria, enhancing its capabilities through the AI Feature Drops Program. This initiative allows users to gain early access to new AI functionalities being integrated into the browser.

The most recent updates to Aria include the integration of Imagen 2 by Google, which enables the AI to generate images, and a feature that allows the assistant to read text answers aloud, further enriching the user experience with advanced AI-driven interactions.
