Vivaldi gets more powerful and works across all devices

The latest version of Vivaldi on the desktop gets more powerful and personal, and ensures secure data syncing across platforms including Android, iOS, and in cars.

Recently, we launched Vivaldi on iOS. This means you can experience browsing that is powerful, personal, and private on all major platforms – Windows, macOS, Linux, Raspberry Pi, iOS, Android, and Android Automotive – making Vivaldi a truly cross-platform browser.

We are thrilled about our cross-platform expansion and to add to our excitement, our new update on desktop – Vivaldi 6.4 – releases with significant enhancements.

You can download the new version on your desktop and notebooks and enjoy the browser’s unrivaled customizable functionality and powerful built-in features.

Browse on desktop, mobile, and in cars

We started building Vivaldi on desktop with a distinctive look and feel with the aim of extending the same design philosophy to multiple platforms.

Today, whichever platform you use, you will feel at home with Vivaldi’s customizable user interface and a familiar set of built-in tools such as the Speed Dials, Desktop-style tabs, Panels, Notes, a Reading List, a Tracker and Ad Blocker, and Vivaldi Sync.

Sync your data, cross-platform

Vivaldi Sync keeps your data accessible between your computers, tablets, and smartphones. Whether browsing on desktop, Android, and iOS devices, or in a car, we ensure that your Bookmarks, Passwords, typed History, open Tabs, Reading List, and Notes are always in sync. You can also sync some settings such as search engines.

Keeping your data safe is our priority. That is why we store the Sync data on our own servers in Iceland. Even though we are using the Sync engine from Chromium, we have modified it to use our own server instead of Google’s servers. This means you do not need to trust Google with your data. We have also added encryption to the data, using an encryption password that we do not have access to on our servers so that only you can access it.

Pop-out Videos and stay in control

We have heard you loud and clear: You need to adjust the volume level on the fly in the Pop-out Video (Picture-in-Picture) player.

In this update, we have added full volume level controls to the Pop-Out Video player.

Adjust volume controls in the Pop-out Video.

Vivaldi lets you pop any video out of its webpage and into a Pop-Out Video player. The Pop-out Video player is a small floating window you can place where you want on your screen to keep an eye on that cricket match you are totally not watching in the background while you work.

Whether you’re catching up on your favorite YouTube channels, binge-watching Netflix, or enjoying live streams on Twitch, Pop-out Video ensures that you never miss a moment. Earlier you could only mute sound through Quick Commands or other shortcuts, and through Tab context menus.

Manage your emails and schedules effortlessly with Mail and Calendar

The combination of a built-in Mail, Calendar, and Feed Reader makes the browser unique.

Vivaldi Mail makes it quick and easy to handle multiple email accounts in a single browser tab. You can see all emails from all accounts in one view or filter and set up your own custom views. You can configure Vivaldi Mail to your heart’s content! Just like the famously customizable Vivaldi Browser.

Vivaldi Mail makes all your emails available offline. You can respond to messages and manage them, and it will sync to your email account when you reconnect. Mails are stored locally on your device which means you can search through them instantly. Your offline message copies also serve as a backup, if you one day were to lose access to your email account.

You can filter messages based on rules you define and save them as folders. Vivaldi Mail also seamlessly supports labels from other clients like Thunderbird and Apple Mail, ensuring a smooth transition without losing your existing organization system.

The built-in Mail in Vivaldi makes all emails available offline.

But that’s not all! Vivaldi Calendar takes productivity to the next level. In this update, we have introduced calendar templates.

You can easily create templates for your frequently occurring events, including your meetings, socials, birthdays, doctor’s appointments, and after-school activities. Templates make it quicker to create common events that may not fit a specific rule of recurrence

The new Calendar Templates help manage complex events with reminders

With these templates, managing your events is a breeze. Head to the Calendar Settings and create a new event in fewer clicks. Simply apply the template, fill in any missing details, and save.

For example, you can create templates such as birthdays that re-occur yearly, a 30-minute-long meeting, or even a reminder for a doctor’s appointment. You can create a new template from scratch or reuse any existing event. This way you can save time and stay on top of your schedules.

Download Vivaldi 6.4

We want you to see Vivaldi as your home on the internet, so it should reflect your personality, preferences, and needs on whichever platform you use.

Whether you’re at your desk, on the move, or even in your car, we’ll continue to adapt to you! And that happens with your valuable feedback and ideas at every step. So keep them coming.

Download it right away if you are a Windows enthusiast, a macOS aficionado, or a Linux lover, and unlock a world of new browsing possibilities.
