Feedly Mini for Chrome gets smarter in version 5

April 14, 2019 Edwin K

One million Feedly users rely on Feedly Mini to quickly add new sources to their feeds and save essential articles to their boards.

Saving insightful articles to your boards allows you to share and shine with your team and train Leo. The more articles you save to a board, the greater the accuracy of Leo’s like board priorities.

We are excited to announce a new version of the Feedly Mini Chrome browser extension that makes following sources and saving articles even easier.

Saving an article to one of your Feedly Boards

One of the popular feature requests for Feedly Mini was the ability to add a note to the article being saved to a board.

Quickly annotate and save web pages to one of your Feedly boards

In version 5, if you have access to the annotation features, you will be able to add a note to the article you are saving to your boards.

If you are part of Feedly Teams and have connected Feedly Teams with Slack, you will be able to mention a teammate or a Slack channel directly in Feedly mini and quickly notify your teammates.

Following a new source

We are also bringing the power of our new discovery experience to Feedly Mini v5.

Quickly follow a new source

Let’s imagine that you are browsing the Web and you discovered a new source you want to follow in Feedly.

When you click on the Feedly Mini icon, Feedly Mini will automatically discover the RSS feed for the page you are reading and show you a popup with information about that source.

You can click on Follow in Feedly to preview the RSS in Feedly and add it to one of your feeds.

You can also click on Explore to tap into the collective wisdom of the Feedly community and determine what are the sources that user often co-read with the source you are looking at.

No more having to look at the source page to find an RSS URL and manually searching for that URL to be able to add it to one of your feeds.

This is the first step for us to bring some of the work we are doing with Leo and discovery to Feedly Mini. Let us know what you think by joining the Feedly Lab Slack community and expect to see more in the next three to six months as Leo matures
