With the introduction of Hype chat service into the Opera Mini mobile web browser, Opera is redefining the concept of mobile browsers, providing users with a personalized, engaging browsing experience that enables seamless chatting, surfing and sharing – without compromising speed or driving increased data consumption.
Hype Chat in Opera Mini is the first African-inspired chat service built into a mobile browser, allowing users to easily set up an account and start chatting with secure end-to-end encryption right away. This means users can now browse the web, chat with friends, and share self-created memes, stickers and GIFs with other Hype users, all in one app. It also sync with your phone to let you see who’s on Hype and invite more friends.
Hype users can use the unique built-in meme creator to make chatting with friends even more personal and fun. Moreover, users can join interest-based channels i.e Opera Mini Hype Clubs to chat with those who are on the same wavelength. Series of stickers created by African artists such as Okolo Chibuike and Mayowa Alabi from Nigeria can also be used in Hype chat in Opera Mini.
Hype also includes WebSnap, a feature already known from the Opera desktop browser, allowing users to take snapshots from the web. Once a websnap is captured, users can edit it by adding colors, text and emojis, making it fun and entertaining before sharing with others. WebSnap also allows users to smoothly share the link of the original website from which they took their snaps, so users no longer need to switch between apps to share the content they want.
How Do I Get Hype?
Hype is exclusively available as an integrated feature in the Opera Mini browser, available on Google Play. So, download Opera Mini, launch it, tap the Hype logo at the bottom to register and login to Hype in Opera Mini.
Opera Mini Hype Registration
To activate Opera Mini Hype account, users should have an Opera Mini application. Users set up a Hype account by tapping the Hype logo at the bottom of the Opera Mini browser, or through the O menu. Next they choose their name and take a selfie or upload a personalised photo, which will become their profile picture and will be visible for other Hype users. Once this process is completed, users sync Hype with their phone contact list to start chatting with others.
Get Free Data in Opera Mini Hype
To help familiarize people with the concept of an easy-to-use chatting service built into a browser and as a response to the high cost of data in Nigeria, Opera has partnered with the leading carriers in Nigeria to enable free daily browsing and chatting for those using the service. Users of Opera Mini and Airtel, MTN and Globacom can activate the free data anytime by opening the Feedback Bot in Hype, sending “Unlock my free data” in chat, then clicking the link in the reply message. The free mobile data will be activated when the page is loaded.
Hype was first launched in 2021 in Kenya as a pilot market, and it is already showing impressive results so far in Nigeria.
