Play audio in background – Vivaldi Android Browser snapshot 2925.3

Today’s snapshot presents two new options – play audio in background and set Vivaldi as default browser.

Two new settings

* Allow background media playback – users can listen to their favorite music videos even when Vivaldi is in background.
* Set as default browser – the Vivaldi browser can be set as default from the settings now.

Take a look at the changelog for a full overview of the changes and let us know what you think.

Differences to Final

The purpose of these snapshots is to allow our users a chance to preview upcoming changes, and to help us ensure the quality of our latest fixes and improvements, before we add them to Final. If you would prefer something that was already widely tested, stick with the main Vivaldi Android package.

When testing a Snapshot, it is a good idea to review the changelog (below). Try out the changes and let us know your thoughts in the comments section or directly in the Play Store. When commenting in the Play Store, remember that it is helpful to mention the version you were testing with.
