Opera Max app reduces data using streaming audio on Android




Opera has released a new version of its data reduction application Max. What is new is that there are now data can be saved when listening to streaming music. This is done by transcoding of the streamed files to AAC +.

On his website gives Opera explain the functionality. Since the recent update of the Max application is support for several services for streaming music. These involve YouTube Music, Slacker Radio, Pandora, and the lesser known Gaana and saavn. Streamed audio files are converted via transcoding to AAC +, a format that uses less data than MP3 for example. The dates savings would thereby be able to walk to about 50 percent. Opera wants in the future will support more streaming services, but what they are is unknown.

For the transcode audio files to AAC + makes Opera using the so-called Rocket Optimizer, a technology which would hold the company through the acquisition of Skyfire in 2013. Earlier Opera this year incorporated the technology already in the Max app from YouTube video files and Netflix to reduce.

Opera Max can be freely downloaded and is currently only available for smartphones running on the Android operating system. Tablets according to Opera are not yet supported, and other mobile operating systems either. When the support is extended is not known.
