With over 3 billion saves, Pocket is one of the most popular options for users to save articles to read later, and as a result, the service has access to a trove of the most interesting articles on the internet. With its latest feature, Pocket has made it possible for users to search through the most popular items saved to the service.
Search results are a combination of trending and popular articles on that topic. At a glance, you can see the title, source, and, for the first time, how many times the article has been saved to Pocket. You can either save items directly to your Pocket reading list right there or click on the link to load the original page.
In addition to searching for articles on just about any topic you can think of, Pocket also has a handy menu with some of the trending and popular keywords for you to choose from, as well as easy access to Pocket Hits — where you can find the articles that have been saved anywhere from 10,000 times and over.
Another way in which Pocket is making it easier to discover good content to read is with an update to its Chrome extension. When you save an article to Pocket, the extension also reveals three related stories that might interest you. (If you don’t like this feature, you can always disable it in the extension’s settings.)
