Pocket, my favorite reading app, has announced a new Chrome extension. They already have an extension to quickly save content to Pocket. The new one is a New Tab Page extension that will display curated content.
The new extension, Pocket New Tab, adds popular articles from within the Pocket network. According to an email from Pocket, the content is the result of articles saved by 30 million of its users.
Along with Pocket’s popular content, the extension allows you to keep your popular websites thumbnails. The extension also has a Google search field. This could be making some money for Pocket, but I could not confirm this.
Here is the official features list:
- Discover top content from across the web on your new tab.
- New content gets added every hour, so you never run out of interesting things to read.
- Seamlessly save interesting content to your Pocket, read across devices, even offline.
- Keep up on popular topics of the day, and dig deeper with direct links to Pocket Explore.
- Keep or remove your Chrome’s Top Sites and the Google search bar, it’s up to you!
I have used Pocket’s content suggestions. It is extremely addictive. I tend to add three or four articles to my list every time I open the Explore tab. I installed the extension as soon as I received the email from Pocket. I look forward to trying this out!
