Back in 2016, Opera introduced VPN support for its browser that gave users the ability to use VPN without downloading third-party apps or paying for expensive VPN subscriptions. Now the company has started working towards bringing the same feature to Android devices as well.

The feature was announced by Opera in a blog post today, where they explained the use of VPN as well as confirmed that they are now beta testing the feature for Android users. The VPN will allow users to connect to three broad geographic locations namely, Asia, Europe and America. Not only that, but Opera has also added an Optimal Location option for users who don’t want a specific location and are more concerned about the speed.

The feature is currently rolling out to the beta users and will soon roll out to the public. Opera is currently the only major browser that supports VPN on Android. Unfortunately, the company didn’t disclose a timeline for iOS. If you want to try the feature right now then you can head to the Google Play Store and download the Opera beta app.
