Opera, maker of the well-known browser of the same name, announced today that it has successfully integrated its AI assistant, Aria, into the iOS version of the browser, making it available for the first time on all major platforms.
According to a company announcement, Opera’s seen rapid growth in the use of Aria, boasting one million users as of today. The AI assistant, like many in use now, is based on a collaboration with OpenAI, giving users access to that company’s large language models without creating a separate user account. An Opera account is required to use Aria, however. Aria also uses Opera’s in-house Composer architecture for access to real-time web results, grafting a layer of live information onto the chatbot’s responses.
