Don't expect Opera Mini for Windows Phone to get updated soon

Windows Phone and Windows 10 Mobile users are not going to get a lot of attention from the Opera web browser team, at least for now. A new message shows that the development team is working mostly on the Android and iOS versions.

In a blog post, Opera offered a statement on the Windows Phone version of Opera Mini:

In short: no major updates are planned for the next few months. This is, of course, not set in stone, and we're hoping to review the platform later this year. But, right now, the small team who were working on the Windows Phone app are now dedicating their time to our other apps on iOS or Android.Having said that, we will continue to make sure the browser on Windows Phone is still secure to use. The developers are also keeping an eye on bugs to fix major annoyances as they can (so keep your bug reports coming in!).

Opera also stated they have no current plans to launch a Windows 10 universal app, saying that it does not "have the resources to work on this." Opera also claims that it does't have the time or resources to port its iOS app to Windows 10 Mobile, using Microsoft's bridge tools:

This is a great solution for some apps, and our teams did look into it as a possibility, but unfortunately it wasn't a good solution. A browser is a much more complex animal than other apps (which is why we enjoy making them).
