Opera users can also get Aria to read aloud their text “in a conversation-like fashion”, thanks again to Google’s text-to-audio model. Gemini’s integration will allow Aria AI “to provide its users with the most current information, at high performance.”

Previously, Opera One became the first browser to integrate local AI models. With the new integration, Opera’s homegrown Aria AI gets more options for it to choose from. Aria AI uses a “multi-LLM Composer AI engine” which gives it access to multiple AI models. Depending on what a user wants to do, it can pick out the best model for the task.
