Last year, we introduced Pocket Listen, a unique way for users to consume their Pocket list while on the go. With Listen, articles are read using Text-to-Speech technology on any Android Phone or Tablet. Each week, users listen to more than 25,000 articles, and the stories are 2.5 times longer than the average article saved to Pocket.
Today, we’re excited to announce Pocket for Samsung Galaxy Gear, the world’s first way to access your saved articles without having to pull the phone out of your pocket. When you are on the go, traveling or during a commute, Pocket’s Listen feature, with Galaxy Gear, lets you hear your articles read out loud, and it’s all controlled from your wrist, leaving your hands free.
Samsung Galaxy Gear features a sleek, compact display that is a convenient extension to your Pocket. With a simple tap on the wrist, you can play/pause, favorite, and archive articles that will seamlessly sync your Pocket list and devices.
Just like last week’s announcement that we’re bringing Pocket to all Kobo e-readers and tablets, with Pocket for Samsung Galaxy Gear we are working hard to make it easy to save and consume your content anytime and anywhere. And we’ve got more in store for you in the coming weeks.
We’d love to hear from you: If you have any questions or feedback, you can always reach us at Pocket Support.
