Opera Mini for Android updated with new QR system

Opera-Mini-Icon

Popular third-party browser Opera Mini has today received a rather beefy update via the Play Store. The upgrade transports compatibility for a number of additional languages, improvements for the download manager, a new QR-code reader and a whole host of other alterations which have been designed exclusively to improve a user’s overall experience when using the application to surf the web.

The most significant modification this update bears is for the integrated QR system. Once users have successfully installed the upgrade, they will be able to not only scan and open QR codes from within the app, but also have the facility to generate their own unique identification tags, which can then be shared with friends by way of social networking sites or saved for use at a later date in the format of a standard PNG file type.

If you’re an Opera Mini user and would like to install the update on your smartphone or tablet, simply open up the Play Store, toggle the hamburger menu by swiping in from the left-hand side of the screen, select ‘My Apps’ and click on the application, then tap the update button.
