Can I save PDF files and images to Pocket?

Pocket has rudimentary support for PDF files and images, but there are a couple of limitations.

  • Like anything else you'd want to save to Pocket, the PDF or image file must be hosted online, and be viewable in a browser with a unique URL. Files that are locally stored on your computer or mobile device cannot be saved to Pocket.
  • At this time, PDFs sadly can't be saved using the Android app
  • PDFs display in Web View and cannot be searched with Pocket Premium's full-text search feature.

What about uploading files from my computer (Word documents, photos, eBooks) forwarding emails, music files or other filetypes?

Pocket does not support uploading files from your computer as the item must be hosted online with a shareable URL.

Pocket does not support file types other than PDFs and image files.
