Hey gang - I'm the founder/CEO @ Pocket and here to answer any questions about the new releases and Pocket in general. (And thanks @benln for sharing this!) Everyday, millions of people on Pocket are saving and reading what’s interesting to them – helping us build an impressive library of over 3 billion saves that surfaces a unique and truly human view of what’s good on the web. Today, for the first time, we're opening up our understanding of great content and making it so that anyone can search and discover the very best of the Web, on any topic. This is a major step forward in our vision for Pocket and our ability to increase the quality of content on the web. Excited to finally have this first iteration of it out there! Here are some example pages from Explore to check out: Westworld - https://getpocket.com/explore/we... (warning: possible spoilers) Urban Design - https://getpocket.com/explore/ur... Self Driving Cars - https://getpocket.com/explore/se... Please share your favorite searches! -- And the ones that could be improved too :)

@nateweiner Been a Pocket user for years, lovely to see the changes you guys are making. Pretty good UX so far as well. Keep up the great work!
@nateweiner I LOVE LOVE LOVE Pocket. Thank you for being SO disciplined and committed to keeping the app so simple & so effective on what it is really meant to do. Your team has *always* optimized for what really matters for the mindset a user is in when he or she uses the product. Congrats on the launch of new features.
@nateweiner I use pocket on a daily basis, now don't know what I would do without it. Love this new concept of making a curated search corpus - this could be the future direction of search engines.
@nateweiner @benln Would it be possible for you to tell me how to find Pocket on Chrome (in mobile)? Have been struggling with this for quite some time now. I'm not able to find the Pocket icon anywhere on my mobile chrome window.

@andrewett I too am skeptical if this doesn't have an AI & deep machine learning chat bot then HOW does it work? 😱
This is pretty awesome. I'd be lost on Medium if I didnt have options to explore. Now bringing me in to explore on @Pocket - nice Where it asks for my interest I'd love to have some pre-populated general ones to get me started
This is awesome. I miss the days of having a few go-to sources of news/reading. Hoping that Pocket can be it :)
@davegerhardt Deep insight alert! What were your old go-to's, Dave?
@covrter when ESPN and TechCrunch were must-reads first thing in the morning.
