Pocket is the undeniable read-it-later leader, but Google seems to be gunning for a spot in that space. Two Google services have the potential to replace Pocket, but there’s a caveat: right now, they’re still pretty bare bones.

Google Inbox, Google’s optional alternative to the standard Gmail layout Google Inbox Review: A Breath Of Fresh Air Google Inbox Review: A Breath Of Fresh Air Gmail is a household name in the email department, but Google wasn't content with it. Meet Google Inbox, a new way of approaching email. Read More , aims to make sure that you see the most important messages you’ve received. With the Chrome extension Inbox by Gmail, you can save articles from your browser to your Inbox.

Whether in the web or mobile versions of Inbox, saved articles will all appear in one bundle.

Clicking on a link will open up the story on the original website. There is no way to save articles for offline viewing, and it doesn’t have Pocket’s ability to offer a clean, ad-free version display of the article.

Why Use Google Inbox Instead?

    One major problem with the Google Inbox (app) is that, if you have filters set up for processing emails to specific labels (especially those that you have skip the inbox), using Google Inbox (app) nullifies that setting, and your filters apply the required label but do not archive from the Inbox. I have a *lot* of filters set up to whisk emails out of the inbox into 'folders' (aka labeled), but upon trying Inbox all of my filters stopped the archival process, making a huge mess of my inbox.

    Well:
    a) on desktop it works only in Chrome. Not my browser of choice both on PC or Android - and lot of people agree with that.
    b) For mobile devices it doesn't save articles offline. Major drawback.
    c) Lot of people - like me - like to partition. For me Inbox (and rest of googleland) is for 'semiserious stuff' - ie bills,email notifications, tasks, while pocket(combined with feedly) is for more interest-related. Mixing different parts of life in one app is invitation for distraction and creating mess.

    1 more way for Google to become encrusted in your life's fabric. I know, it is appealing to make use of all its integrated, easy-to-use, free services, but at what (future) price?

      so you will never use a good service just because of a thought, that it can be closed?

      and are you sure Pocket (a small startup of several people) will last forever?

    Hi,

    not a bad idea but there is an bookmarklet or an extension to save directly an article to inbox (like Pocket extension)?

    Beste regards,
