Automatic Video pop out
Based on Video pop out, Opera software recently introduced the ability to detach video conferencing tabs. The company later made the automatic videoconferencing pop-out feature available.
Now, with Opera 83, the company added Automatic Video pop out. Here is how the feature works:
- You visit a site like Youtube and start a video
- While the video is playing, you navigate to the next tab, the video then is displayed in a pop-out window automatically.
- When you come to the original tab, the video gets restored and the floating window disappears.
