Today, we’re excited to announce that Highlighting is available in Pocket for Android!
When reading an article in Pocket on your Android phone or tablet, you can now highlight passages along the way. This is the perfect way to remember passages that you find meaningful, want to share with friends, or revisit later on. All the while, you’ll be creating a treasure trove of excerpts that are important to you and accessible at a moment’s notice.
Here’s how it works:
Simply long-press on any text in Pocket to start your selection, and then expand to include the entire word, phrase, or section that you’d like to highlight. Then, tap the Highlight button.
Highlighting in Pocket has two tiers: Free and Premium. All Pocket users will be able to create 3 highlights per article, and those who subscribe to Pocket Premium will be able to create an unlimited number of highlights.
This has been one of Pocket’s most requested features ever, and we’re overjoyed to finally bring it to Pocket for Android. Highlighting in Pocket for iOS is coming next, and Highlighting support for our entire platform will happen in the future.
We always love hearing from you, our passionate users and fans. If you have any feedback, suggestions, or ideas about how we could make Pocket even more useful for you, please drop us a line.
