Highlighting in Pocket

Highlighting is both a Free and Premium feature. For free Pocket accounts, you can create up to 3 highlights per article. For accounts subscribed to Pocket Premium, you can create an unlimited number of highlights.

Highlighting is temporarily unavailable in Pocket for iOS version 8.0. As we update our new iOS experience to bring back the highlighting feature, you can highlight on Pocket's website or the Android app.

To create a highlight 

Creating a highlight is as simple as selecting text in Article View. When you highlight a passage, the text background will change color so it stands out from the rest of the article.

  1. Hold your finger (or click) on a word that you’d like to include in the highlight.
  2. Expand the selection to include the entire passage.
  3. Tap or click the Highlight button.
