Opera has now discontinued its Opera Max app, which was launched back in 2014 and offered both data savings across applications apart from free VPN features. As a consequence, there will be no further upgrades for Opera Max moving forward. The application has also been delisted from the Google Play store catalogue.
While the company has clarified that the Opera Max service will remain intact for existing users for an unspecified period of time, it also says that it will inform the users about the termination of server-side support in due time.
To recall, Opera Max received an update in May this year that brought along a new UI and data savings for Facebook. The update also brought along certain useful security improvements.
Separately, the company has introduced a new Gold service within its Opera VPN app for iOS that offers ‘enhanced speeds’ and a choice between 10 regions. The Opera VPN Gold service, which has been introduced with version 2.0 of the Opera VPN app for iOS, has been presented as an all-in-one VPN solution and has been claimed to provide enhanced speeds by the company.
The new service gives the option of choosing region between the US, Canada, Australia, France, Netherlands, Germany, Singapore, Spain, the UK, and Italy. The company is also offering a dedicated customer support for the Opera VPN Gold service.
