Opera Mini for Android has got a just new update with enhanced data saving and some exciting new features.

Speaking of the Facebook notification bar, it is a live updating slide showing all your notifications from the popular social media. To initiate this new feature, first you need to login to your Facebook account from the Opera Mini Android browser. Then you will be able to see your friend requests, messages, mentions and other notifications directly from the pull down menu of your Android smartphone.

The latest update of Opera Mini also comes with a state-of-the-art AI (Artificial Intelligence) assisted newsfeed which studies a user’s reading habit and suggests related news. Unfortunately, this feature is still undergoing testing in some selected countries including India.
