Getting Started with Pocket for Android Beta


This page is for Pocket users who are interested in helping test early versions of Pocket for Android. Please note that the beta is not for everyone - it won’t have the same level of polish you’ve come to expect from Pocket, and may be unstable or include incomplete features. In addition, you will hear from us periodically with requests for feedback.

If you need a reliable Pocket experience, we recommend sticking with the official version that’s available on Google Play.
