Pocket For Android Reads Your Articles Out Loud

Android: Pocket, one of our favourite bookmark-and-read-later apps, just updated with a "Listen" feature that reads your saved articles out loud to you.

It's hard to find time to read these days, but if you have a long commute or free time to listen to something, Pocket has you covered. The newest update uses Android's built-in text-to-speech engine to read your articles out loud to you. You can choose the speed at which it reads, and it works with multiple languages.

Sadly, Pocket says it has no plans to bring this feature to iOS since that platform doesn't have a text-to-speech engine. Check out Pocket's blog post linked below to read more, or head to Google Play to download the update.

    Try it with IVONA text-to-speech voices. It works great even fantastic!
