How do I add DDG as my search engine in Opera? I'm using it on Android if that makes any difference.

Visit, tap and hold the search box, select "Add search engine."
There doesn't appear to be any way to set it as the default (at least from the UI).

Thanks. :) It's a step closer if nothing else. I'll see if it sticks as the selected engine or if that reverts to Google. I certainly hope not.

@bizzare is correct, there's currently no way to make any search engine other than G the default in Opera Mobile (Android).

One other way to add DDG to Opera is to add it to the Speed Dial. Just go to, then click on the + icon on the left of the address bar and select Add To Speed Dial.

I actually wrote a workaround for this a couple months ago:
