Using Opera’s “Composer” infrastructure, Aria will leverage OpenAI’s “GPT” technology, along with additional features such as the ability to search for what’s new on the web, generate text and code, and answer product questions. is realized. For example, knowledge of the entire database of support documents combined with knowledge of current products can assist users in need of support.
Aria, like the new Bing chat powered by OpenAI’s GPT-4, uses ChatGPT-like technology and is able to reflect Opera’s own information and information from the Internet.
Aria is the company’s own native generative AI assistant, added to the Opera browser sidebar alongside ChatGPT, Facebook Messenger, TikTok and WhatsApp. The new assistant has Internet access, similar to the ChatGPT Plus version (the free version of ChatGPT’s knowledge is limited to content before 2021).
All in all, this generative AI is the latest move in the company’s plans to integrate the power of generative AI into Opera’s browser experience, following the ChatGPT integration and the recent development of Opera One.
To try Aria
If you’re using a desktop OS, just download the latest version of Opera One for developers and you’ll be able to use Aria. And if you’re using an Android device, download the beta version of Opera (“Opera beta web browser”) from the Google Play store. Access to Aria requires an Opera account, but anyone with a valid email address can create one for free.
The Composer infrastructure also allows Aria to connect with other AI models. In the future, Opera plans to integrate more features, such as search services from multiple partners.
While Aria is currently in the early stages of a project being pursued by Opera, the company hopes to further integrate Aria with the browser experience, eventually enabling it to help with cross-browser tasks.
