Opera has recently tried various functions of its browser products. First, it launched a game browser called opera GX, and then allowed users to quickly access social networking sites such as twitter, WhatsApp, instagram, Facebook messenger and messenger from the sidebar.
At present, all kinds of innovation attempts have not stopped. The development team opera 73 development version has integrated the music player into the sidebar. The player currently supports Apple Music, spotify and Youtube music services.
Web browser involves multimedia, it is easy to think of the global media control function of chromium browser, but so far it only works and runs in chrome and edge browsers. Opera browser does not enable this function by default.
But opera has developed its own player. To enable the player, you can simply click the play icon on the sidebar and select an online music service to call the relevant service.
It should be noted that when any other open tab in opera is playing sound, the player will automatically pause the music. Once the sound of other tabs stops or pauses, the player will resume.
When the player is playing music, its sidebar icon will turn blue. If the player is not active, the icon will return to the default state. If this is not useful, the user can choose to turn off this function in the settings page of the sidebar
