Benefits of integrated messengers
Having built-in messengers in your browser makes your online life just that much easier.
The most popular messengers - Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Telegram, and VKontakte - are available in your Opera sidebar.
The messengers in Opera are fully-integrated, so you can message, chat, and share photos as you would in a separate extension or messenger app.
You can get messenger notifications right in your sidebar and never miss a message, unless you want to. Mute or log out when you need to.
Pin your messenger chats to browse and chat side-by-side, seamlessly. You can pin or unpin your messenger with a single click.

It's time to switch to Opera
You know when you don't want to do something, like go out, but a friend makes you and then you're really glad you did. This is one of those situations.
Make your online life easier
The modern browser is your control center for navigating the web. At Opera, we are developing our browsers to include the features and tools you need, all in one place. It’s all about making your online life a little bit easier, and much more convenient. Integrated messengers are a great example, simply because we use them so often. And those who don’t are just missing out.
The best part about having Facebook messenger, WhatsApp, Telegram, and VK in Opera, is that you don’t have to switch back and forth between different apps, or download a separate messenger app. And since they are right in your sidebar, you don’t have to keep checking whether you’ve missed a message. Instead, messenger chat notifications will appear in the sidebar of your browser, right in your peripheral vision - which makes it easier to focus on what you are doing.
If you want to actively use a messenger and browse webpages at the same time, like most people, you can pin your chat in one click. Pinning it will divide your browser window so that there’s no overlap between your messenger and your tabs. You can adjust the size, unpin it with one more click, or even mute it or log out easily. The Opera browser comes with built-in features for convenience, and gives you control over them. For more ways to organize your internet control center, learn to use Opera’s Workspaces, as well as the Video pop-out feature.
