GX is the gaming-oriented form of the Opera browser that has attracted downloads in their millions since its initial 2019 early-access release. Now, its maker has debuted the mobile version of the same. It is obviously not a complete one-to-one remake of the desktop variant; however, it has the same general look, as well as some features specific to the GX build.

They include the Fast Action Button (FAB) navigation mode, which involves device haptics for feedback, as well as GX corner, a dedicated homescreen zone with a curated feed for "the latest gaming news, deals and a game release calendar".

Opera GX Mobile also features its own version of this browser's Flow in order to sync it with GX on a user's PC via a QR code. This sets up an "encrypted" channel through which files, links or memos can be swapped between the phone and computer in question. This new browser version is available from now as an Android or iOS app, both of which are in beta at present.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
