Here are some of the changes that have been made:
- We’ve moved the new folder button to the Floating Action Button (FAB) in the editor(VAB-7998).
- We’ve updated our UI icons to match the style of our desktop and iOS versions, providing a more cohesive and recognizable visual experience across platforms(VAB-7836).
- We’ve rearranged the onboarding flow to introduce Vivaldi as the default option earlier. This ensures that you can quickly make the most of our browser’s features from the moment you start using it(VAB-7616).
- In this update, we’ve resolved also several regression issues.

We are currently offering Snapshots from the Play Store.

Manually installed files can be updated from the Play Store at a later date, provided you installed the one that is most appropriate for your device.

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.
