Here are some of the changes that have been made:
- With this update, Vivaldi has fixed the issue where content lists in the panel wouldn’t scroll back once they reached the end. It applies for both bookmarks and notes.
- Another bug in the panel that has been fixed is the issue where the button wouldn’t work while focusing on the address field on some model phones.
- Vivaldi has added a new feature that prompts users to rate the browser. This feature will encourage users to provide feedback, which can help Vivaldi improve its product. It can be found on the bottom of the settings, or it will be triggered if a user browsed websites (opened at least a tab) 5 days out of 7 days.
- In landscape mode, the view in the menu settings was getting cut off, making it difficult for users to access the options. With this update, Vivaldi has resolved the issue, so users can now use the menu settings without any issues.
- Vivaldi has fixed several crashes related to logging into Sync, Tab Switcher and Panels.

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 (above). 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.
