Opera Max Audio Compression Feature saves 50% data on Gaana, Saavn & YouTube Music



This year we have seen tons of music streaming apps getting popular while many have been in the market for a long time. But have you ever wondered that how can you save data while streaming high quality audio content on apps like Gaana, Saavn, etc. Just like there are apps to reduce the data usage on browsing the websites, there are is an app for optimizing the audio files you play on these apps.

Opera has come up with an Audio Compression technology that would save you as much as 50% of mobile data. Company’s latest Opera Max is now capable of flattening those audio files you play on selected music streaming apps. It is claimed to first of its kind service provided by the Opera Max, and we like the idea of saving 50% mobile data.

Opera Max - Percentage Savings

The generation in the country is obsessed with latest technology and apps, and this might actually be a very interesting app. A study suggests that there are more than 97 million people in urban areas in the country those listen to music online and staggering 75% of them stream on their mobile phones. Listening to music online is the third most preferred thing by mobile users in India, after the mail and social media.

After one-month of introducing video saving for YouTube and Netflix content, the latest version of Opera Max now offers data saving for music apps, it is one step forward in revolutionizing the streaming services in India. The country where 4G services started only recently, such data saving services would play a key part in empowering Indian smartphone consumers to listen to music on-the-go without worrying about their mobile data.

You might be wondering how it optimizes the content. Well, this app uses the rocket optimizer technology to compress the audio traffic, which is the same thing done on video optimization of YouTube and Netflix content. And remember, it would affect the quality of the content. The technology can deliver high audio quality content over a low bitrate connection; it supports both MP3 and MP4 formats, as well as it can convert the streams to the more efficient AAC+ codec.

Lossev adds, “We keep fine tuning the streaming-audio-optimization technology in Opera Max, so people can save more data while enjoying good audio quality. Pandora, Slacker Radio, Gaana, Saavn, Mix Radio and YouTube Music are the first six apps that passed our quality-assurance test, but we will support more music-streaming apps in the near future.”

This is relatively useful for users having limited data plans, and meanwhile they also don’t have to look out for free Wi-Fi coverage to stream their favorite music while out of their home network. You can monitor and keep count of how much mobile data or Wi-Fi these apps have been using as well as how much you have saved by enabling the service. It will also allow you to control your data plans according to your needs, as you would have more understanding of your data needs.

Opera Max is available for Android users with the version above Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 and above. And moreover, it is available to download for free from Google Play Store. In other news, Opera is planning to integrate Opera Max on around 100 Million Android smartphones by 2017.
