With the start of IPL cricket season in India, Opera has introduced a new Opera Cricket feature for all cricket lovers. The Opera Cricket service is available inside the Opera Mini browser for Android. Users will need to update the Opera Mini browser to its latest version and then tapping on “Get Started” banner will activate the feature.
Opera says that the Opera Cricket feature not only provides lightning fast cricket scores, commentary, video, and notifications, but users will also be able to keep a track of their favorite teams & players without the need of any other app.
The Opera Cricket service keeps users updated during on-going matches with live ball-by-ball commentary. It uses Opera Mini’s cloud technology for real-time information. The company says that users can subscribe to each upcoming match to get a notification when it begins. All they need to do is toggle the button to the left of the selected matches and Opera Cricket feature will start pushing the notifications. Also, within the Opera browser, users can watch cricket video highlights, so there is no need to download multiple apps.
“We Indians live and breathe cricket, and we don’t want to miss out any match,” says Sunil Kamath, VP of South East Asia Pacific, Opera Software. “Opera Cricket embedded inside the new Opera Mini browser offers instant access to all the cricket updates. This is the fastest way for millions of Opera Mini cricket fans to stay on the top during this cricket season.”
