Pocket Launches Text-to-Speech Feature for iOS Users to Listen to Articles

Pocket today has launched an update to its iOS app to introduce ‘Listen’, its Text-to-Speech feature, which has previously been available to Android users.

Today, we’re excited to bring Listen, our Text-to-Speech feature, to iOS. It’s the hands-free way of returning to everything you’ve saved in Pocket. You can start listening from anywhere in the article, skip paragraphs with ease, and adjust the reading speed for when you want to fly through an article or let it slowly soak in. Plus, it has automatic language detection, making Listen available in all languages.

To listen to articles, all you have to do is tap the three ‘dots’ button in the app’s lower toolbar and select Listen (TTS).
