Vivaldi is best known for its Chromium-based multi-platform web browser. However, the company indicated last year that it was expanding into other areas.
It introduced a number of new services to compete with Google and Microsoft, including Vivaldi Mail, Vivaldi Calendar, and more.
And after spending a year in beta, It has become The Mail and Calendar app is now officially available through the browser’s stable channel.
The first version of the Mail app is integrated into the browser, and also includes a calendar and RSS reader.
One of the best things about Mail is that it displays all emails from multiple accounts in one inbox. As a result, you do not have to switch accounts.
It also works with any email provider that supports IMAP and POP3, including Gmail. You can use your existing mail service or set up an account on vivaldi.net.
As a result, users should be able to organize emails, manage schedules, to-do lists, feeds, and more without leaving the browser.
The team behind the browser wrote in a blog post: We launched the first version of the new Mail app in the browser. This allows you to handle emails better than before. The functional mail integrates the calendar and RSS reader seamlessly. This gives you greater control over your data and information.
To try Mail, open your browser and go to Settings, then General, then Productivity Features, to enable Mail, Calendar, and Feeds.
Vivaldi also comes with a calendar and RSS reader.
Mail automatically detects mailing lists and mail threads and offers a search feature that allows you to search for any message in your accounts. Additionally, it automatically places your posts in views.
Each mail can be displayed in different views, providing different ways of mailing. Instead of storing a message in a specific folder, a single message can appear in any folder or view.
The Mail app offers both landscape and portrait views. The browser maintains a database of all posts, tags, filters and searches. As a result, everything can be searched offline.
Additionally, if you’ve ever retrieved your messages, it also indexes the entire mail content before you open it.
Each view comes with a search bar and toggles that can display mailing lists, feeds, trash, and more.
It is activated by default. But you can turn it off. As a result, you can disable Show Reading when you need to extract all unread emails to a specific folder.
Meanwhile, your email, calendars, feeds, and more are available as a sidebar that you can quickly return to while browsing the web without leaving your page.
Similar to Google Calendar, you can also use Vivaldi’s calendar locally or online. However, you can also create or edit events by editing events online. You can also add events while browsing the web without leaving the browser using quick commands.
There are also some privacy features, such as the ability to watch YouTube videos embedded in an RSS reader, which Vivaldi says can limit user tracking.
The new mail service with calendar integration and RSS reader is available in the latest version of Vivaldi Browser for Windows, Mac and Linux. But it is not known when these features will appear in the mobile version.
