"More and more people love listening to their favorite music with apps; however, these apps are among the major data hogs consuming users' mobile data quickly," says Sergey Lossev, Product Manager at Opera Software. "Now, we have added audio compression for these music apps so that people will feel free to stream music without having to look constantly for available, free Wi-Fi coverage. This is particularly helpful for users with limited data plans."

Pandora, Slacker Radio, Gaana, Saavn, Mix Radio and YouTube Music are the first six apps that passed our quality-assurance test, but we will support more music-streaming apps in the near future."
