Pocket releases ChromeOS app with offline reading, streaming video, and more


Pocket, the bookmarking service formerly known as Read It Later, announced their new ChromeOS application today. The app supports many of the same features as the native apps available on other platforms.

The new app brings everything you love about our iOS and Android apps—offline access, distraction-free reading, streaming video, and more—into a beautiful app that’s optimized for your desktop. Pocket runs as a standalone app that will automatically download your saved web content to view offline, and it’s easily accessible on your Windows or Chrome OS taskbar and Start screen.

The app is available on the Google Chrome store now. The app can also be used in Google Chrome for Windows.
