Pocket Premium: Suggested Tags

Introduction

Suggested Tags is a feature in Pocket Premium. Click here to learn more and subscribe to Pocket Premium

After the save feature, tagging is the second most important feature in Pocket as this is how you can organize what you've added to your account. Suggested Tags takes the extra work out of keeping your list organized — after upgrading to Pocket Premium, you’ll see a list of relevant Suggested Tags (selected from tags in your account) so you can add them to your saved item with a single click.

As you create and use the tags in your Pocket account, the more personalized and accurate they'll become as suggestions. To get the most out of Suggested Tags, you'll want to be tagging whenever you save or when reviewing your items. Suggested Tags can only come from tags you've created in your account.

Suggested Tags are available in Pocket’s apps for iOS, Android, and Web. They’re also available when using the Pocket Browser extension for Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Edge, and more.

Note: you must be online to receive Suggested Tags.

How is this different from free Pocket accounts?

In free accounts, relevant tags are not suggested to you automatically. Instead, you must manually choose the tags you'd like to add from your tag list.

Common Questions

How can I improve the Suggested Tags I see?

The Suggested Tags feature is as powerful as the collection of tags you create in your Pocket account. If you have few or no tags in your Pocket, you may see few or no suggestions for tags when you save a link to your list. This means that you'll want to create and use tags on as many of your saves as possible. Because these suggestions come only from tags already in your account, the more that you create and use for your Pocket, the better Suggested Tags will become.
