Scale Vivaldi’s user interface on Android to the size you’re comfortable with.

Usually, mobile browsers are optimized for smartphones but not for tablets. Vivaldi’s user interface is designed to work just as well on tablets, Chromebooks, and screens in cars by allowing you to change the zoom level of the browser interface.

To increase or decrease the size of Vivaldi on Android’s user interface:

  1. Go to Vivaldi menu > Settings > Web Pages > Accessibility > User Interface Zoom.
  2. Move the slider to make the user interface smaller or larger.

Browse with Vivaldi on Android in multiple windows just like on desktop.

Android 12 and up supports opening multiple windows of the same app. This means that if you have a newer mobile device, you can browse with Vivaldi in multiple windows just like on desktop.

Multiple windows are supported better on devices with larger screens, such as tablets. To open a new window on a tablet or a phone with a width larger than 600dp:

  1. Open the Vivaldi menu.
  2. Select New Window.

Though not as convenient, you can open a new window on a smaller screen by following these steps:

  1. Open Vivaldi.
  2. Open your device’s app switcher.
  3. Long-press on the Vivaldi logo above the app preview thumbnail to open a split-screen view.
  4. Search for Vivaldi and tap on it to open a new window in the other half of the split screen.
  5. Exit split screen view, for example, by swiping the divider all the way up or down the screen.

When checking the app switcher, you’ll see Vivaldi listed twice or more, if you’ve opened even more windows.
