Opera has released a new version of its news app called Opera News Lite. The app, which is available on Google Play Store here, was developed for low-income markets like Africa where mobile data is expensive and smartphones have limited storage and memory.
Said Opera on the launch of the app:
…we are launching Opera News Lite, a lighter version of the popular Opera News application, designed for devices with limited data storage capabilities. With a download size of less than one megabyte, we are making Opera News Lite a fast download for everyone, even those on limited mobile networks.
We developed Opera News Lite as per requests from other Opera users like you. The app is highly responsive under all network conditions as it minimizes the use of data and resources to deliver content faster.
What we noticed about the app is that its much cleaner than the regular news app. We certainly recommend it.
