Opera Browser is set to integrate AI-generated content (AIGC) services into PC and mobile versions of its web browsing software. In a recent blog post, the company announced that it will be introducing ChatGPT-powered AI content services to the browser, allowing users direct access to popular platforms such as TikTok, Telegram, and WhatsApp.
The first feature to be added to the browser sidebar will be “Shorten,” a tool powered by ChatGPT that will summarise articles and webpages, helping to create written information faster. The company also plans to develop an AI solution that will filter through all content and summarise it for users, expanding its AI program into AI-generated content for its browser, news, and gaming products.

The announcement comes shortly after reports that ChatGPT has recently crossed the 100 million user mark in record time. Opera hopes that the integration of AI technology will augment the browsing experience for users, providing quicker and easier access to online content.
While there are currently no details on how the integration with platforms such as TikTok, Telegram, and WhatsApp will work, Opera has demonstrated a feature called “Shorten,” which will be available in the address bar and summarise articles or web pages using AI technology.
This move by Opera comes as Google recently unveiled its conversational AI service, Bard. Currently being tested by selected users, Bard is expected to be made available to the public over the coming weeks. It is said to be a combination of the “power, intelligence, and creativity of the company’s large language models.”
As AI technology continues to advance, it is becoming increasingly integrated into various products and services, making them more efficient and user-friendly. With the integration of ChatGPT-powered AI content services, Opera is poised to take advantage of this trend and provide a more innovative browsing experience for its users.
