What are the benefits of Pocket Premium?
Pocket is a free service that makes it easy to discover great content and save this content so you can return to it later – on any device, at any time.
While Pocket can be used for free, Pocket Premium is a worthwhile upgrade which adds powerful features and functionality to help you do more with the content you save.
Pocket Premium is a subscription, and you can subscribe to Monthly and Yearly plans. You can cancel anytime, and save money by choosing a yearly plan!

In-Depth Feature Descriptions
Displaying sponsored content is one way that Pocket can earn revenue and sustain ourselves while offering Pocket for free. By upgrading to Pocket Premium, you are helping Pocket’s efforts more directly, and therefore you won’t see any sponsored posts or ads in Pocket or Pocket Hits newsletters.
Pocket Premium subscribers gain access to Pocket’s powerful and extensive search that helps you find your saved content any way you like across your entire Pocket account. You can search by article text, topics, tags, authors, and more, making it easy to quickly find anything in your list.
Additional features include:
- Recent Searches, so you can quickly return to a previous search
- Search for a single Tag, or multiple Tags at once
- Advanced search operators to help you craft and refine your search
- Search All Items (both My List and Archive) simultaneously
Highlighting while reading has enormous benefits. It helps you engage more deeply the text, comprehend dense subjects, and easily revisit to key passages in the future. While the free version limits users to 3 highlights per article, Premium removes this limit.
You can create highlights in Pocket for Android, iOS and Web, and this feature is coming to Pocket’s website very soon.
While you’re subscribed to Pocket Premium, the articles and webpages you save will be automatically copied into your Permanent Library. Therefore, even if content you’ve saved changes or is deleted from the Web, you’ll still be able to access it in Pocket.
With Suggested Tags, you no longer need to type, remember, or search for tags you’ve already used. When tagging an item, a list of suggested tags are shown and can be added with a single tap or click.
The list of suggested tags is inspired by the content and subject matter of the item you’re tagging, as well as the Tags you’ve already used. The more you use tags, the smarter and more personalized the suggestions will become.
Customize Your Reading Experience
Users on iOS, Android, and Web can fully customize their reading experience with adjustable text layout options, and 8 additional premium font options.
