 Opera Press:

Oslo, Norway, May 28th – Opera, the browser innovator, today announced a collaboration with Google Cloud to integrate Gemini models into its Aria browser AI. Aria is powered by Opera’s multi-LLM Composer AI engine, which allows the Norwegian company to curate the best experiences for its users based on their needs.

Opera’s Aria browser AI is unique as it doesn’t just utilize one provider or LLM. Opera’s Composer AI engine processes the user’s intent and can decide which model to use for which task.

Google’s Gemini model is a modern, powerful, and user-friendly LLM that is the company’s most capable model yet. Thanks to this integration, Opera will now be able to provide its users with the most current information, at high performance.

Our companies have been cooperating for more than 20 years. We are excited to be announcing the deepening of this collaboration into the field of generative AI to further power our suite of browser AI services,” said Per Wetterdal, EVP Partnerships at Opera.

We’re happy to elevate our long standing cooperation with Opera by powering its AI innovation within the browser space,” said Eva Fors, Managing Director, Google Cloud Nordic Region.

Opera has been tapping into the potential of browser AI for more than a year now. Currently, all of its flagship browsers and its gaming browser, Opera GX, provide access to the new browser AI. Opera also recently opened a green energy-powered AI data cluster in Iceland with NVIDIA DGX supercomputing in order to be able to quickly expand its AI program and host the computing it requires in its own facility. To stay at the forefront of innovation, the company also recently announced its AI Feature Drops program, which allows early adopters to test its newest, experimental, AI innovations in the Opera One Developer version of the browser.

The newest AI Feature Drop is a result of the collaboration with Google Cloud: as of today, Aria, in Opera One Developer, provides free image generation capabilities by utilizing the Imagen 2 model on Vertex AI. Starting with this feature drop, Opera’s AI will be able to read out responses in a conversational-like fashion. This is thanks to Google’s ground-breaking text-to-audio model.

We believe the future of AI will be open, so we’re providing access to the best of Google’s infrastructure, AI products, platforms and foundation models to empower organizations to chart their course with generative AI,” added Fors.
