Opera Max – data saving Android app launched in India
Opera has announced the launch of the Opera Max app for Android users in India. The app, which was announced early last year, boasts of compressing cellular data across all contents such as videos, photos, media, almost all apps and websites. It offers timeline of app usage and how much data is saved in a day or month. It also shows the data savings by individual apps.
The Opera Max app operates by compressing and rerouting data to the data-savings cloud using a Virtual Private Network (VPN). However, all non-encrypted data requests (excluding websites and apps with HTTPS connections) are sent through Opera Software’s compression servers, which optimize video, images and websites to use less data.
