Read-it-later mobile app Pocket announced that it now supports six other languages including French, German, Japanese, Russian, Spanish, and Italian, according to VentureBeat.

Marketing manager Kait Gaiss said in a blog post today: "Already over 40 percent of Pocket's users speak a language other than English, and 60 percent of our users live outside the United States. We are thrilled that Pocket is now available in six new languages, but this is only the beginning of bringing our platform to a broader audience."

Recently, various social network sites have been looking for ways to increase the number of their users. Others want to understand the comments that users are making about them in different languages, the report explained.

According to The Next Web, Pocket has previously supported only English articles. After adding the six abovementioned languages, the mobile and web app is planning to add more to its list of supported languages, the report said.

In addition, Pocket is working on integrations with international platforms and apps such as Russia's Yandex. The latter will have a pre-installed Pocket in its Chrome extension soon, The Next Web reported.
