Pocket 4.2 arrives with Android-exclusive “Listen” feature


Pocket, perhaps one of our favorite Android apps of all time, has just seen its latest version hit the Google Play store.  The big change this time around is the ability to have your saved Pocket materials read out loud to you.  Called (wait for it) “Listen”, it’s exclusive to Android, leverages the text-to-speech engine, and can be changed (speed, style) to taste.  Oh, the 4.2 update also features a few other enhancements and bug fixes…


  • Pocket’s “Listen” feature: Have your articles read aloud to you using Android’s built in Text-To-Speech feature.
  • Manage Site Subscription feature now working on all versions of Android.
  • Improved full-screen animation in Reader.
  • No longer shortening URL when Viewing in Browser, sharing to Evernote, or copying to clipboard.
  • Minor UI updates.
  • ZTE Blade crash when opening an article.
  • Blank help screen on Jelly Bean.
  • After long pressing a link in the Reader and selecting “Read Later,” archiving/favoriting and other actions would occur on the new link instead of the currently opened link.
  • Other minor bug fixes.

If you have not downloaded Pocket yet, then you’re missing out.  Head to Google Play and grab it for free!
