Introducing time estimates in Pocket on iOS and Android

Introducing time estimates in Pocket

We know that deciding what to read on Pocket can sometimes feel challenging. Maybe even a little overwhelming. So many great stories, so little time. Which one to choose?

You’ve told us that it would be helpful to know how long it takes to start and finish each item in your list, and now you can! When you open Pocket on your phone or tablet, you’ll see time estimates for every article and video you’ve saved, right below the title.

So the next time you have 3 minutes waiting for an appointment, 10 minutes on your commute, or are unwinding on the couch after a long day, open up Pocket and find a story that suits your moment.

Time estimates are currently available on devices set to English. We will be adding support for additional languages and bringing this feature to Pocket for Web in the near future.

We’d love to know what you think. Is choosing what to read a little easier? Are you reading more? Either way, we hope that time estimates help you read and watch the things that matter to you.
