Flow file sharing

The Flow file sharing feature in your Opera browser is a simple and easy way to connect devices and share information. With one click you can send a webpage, image, video, note or even share files with Flow - the encrypted and shared space between the Opera browsers on your devices. You can instantly access your shared file or information on any device you connect. It's quicker than using google drive, and you don't have to use up your cloud storage space or send yourself links via email. Plus, it's free file sharing, so you don't have to pay for other file sharing services.

Sending content to Flow

Sharing content and file sharing is incredibly easy with Flow. Send a webpage link to your phone by simply tapping the Flow icon to the right of your address bar. You can also highlight text on a page and click the popup Send to My Flow option. Want to send yourself a reminder? Open My Flow with the icon on your sidebar and use the text field at the bottom to send notes to yourself. There, you can also click the Upload Files icon to send files, pictures, or documents - or even drag and drop a file into Flow.

Receiving content in Flow

Receiving files, images, notes and other content is fast. When you send it, a notification badge will appear on your devices. The shared file or content is shown in Flow along with information on the device it was sent from and a timestamp of its arrival. Interact with shared content directly in Flow - play videos there, preview pictures, or open file transfers in a new tab. Also, you can easily copy a file or content to your clipboard and use it wherever you want. Shared content is automatically deleted after 24 hours and you can clear your online file storage at any time.
