Tip #247

Long press on selected text in Vivaldi on Android to do a web search with the selection.

We shared how to search with a snippet of text on a web page on the desktop version of Vivaldi in Tip #8. This time we’re sharing how to do the same on Android.

To search with selected text:

  1. Long press on a word you want to select.
    Drag the little bubbles at the bottom corners of the word to select more than one word.
  2. On the menu that appears, tap on the 3 dot menu to see additional options.
  3. Select Web search.

Results will be shown from your default search engine.
