To help you convert your site visitors (using Opera browser) into a targetable audience, we have now extended iZooto to support Opera Push notifications. Opera is now the third most popular browser in India, after Chrome and UC Browser.
With this update, the users browsing your website using Opera browser can subscribe to web push notifications. Push notifications support is for both Opera Mobile and Opera Desktop. This widens the opportunity to create a larger subscriber base and then reach out to a new set of audience. This increases the chances of building a larger audience and driving user engagement and retention.
What is it that you need to do?
You don't need to make any changes at your end for the opt-in to start appearing on the Opera browser.
Note: Web push notification support on the Opera browser is currently in private beta and we are on-boarding select customers only. You can get in touch with us to join the beta list.
By including yourself in the beta list, your visitors coming from the Opera browser will see the subscription prompt when they visit your website.
