Opera GX now lets you stream music directly from its sidebar

Opera launched Opera GX in June 2019 as a dedicated gaming browser for the desktop with all the key features of its regular version. However, it didn't have the Player feature onboard for music streaming.

That changes now as Opera GX adds support for that feature. Opera announced today that you can stream music through Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube Music directly from the Opera GX sidebar. The new integration unifies the music streaming experience in a single location on the browser without needing to switch between different streaming platforms.

Player also includes the ability to quickly access playback controls in different ways. You can either click on the Player icon in the sidebar to pull up its navigation panel or simply hover over it to view pop-out controls so you won't have to leave your current app or tab. In addition, you can use the standard keyboard buttons for playback to control your music streaming.

Opera GX's new integration marks the latest improvements to the browser. Late last year, it added support for Razer Chroma RGB Lighting Effects after previously gaining new themes and a junk file cleaner, among other features. Opera GX is available to download on Windows and macOS.
