Introducing: The Daily Pulse
We’re always learning more about how our community reads the news. We’ve learned that some people enjoy reading Pulse on their phones as they commute to work, while others leisurely browse on their tablets in the evening. Still others use the web app to read news on their coffee breaks. Through our research, we discovered another exciting opportunity for providing our users with the best personalized reading experience.
We’re thrilled to announce that Pulse is launching a daily print service for your news. The Daily Pulse combines the customization of the digital age with the time-honored experience of a newspaper. You choose your sources, and we’ll deliver an individually-printed digest to your doorstep every morning. Enjoy the tactile sensation of newspaper while reading your Facebook feed, tech news, or entertainment updates. It’s the best of both worlds.
The Daily Pulse will be available soon. Keep your eyes peeled on our blog for more.

You can already add Google Reader feeds to your mobile app, but now it’s easy-peasy to add them straight from the web. Just select your Google account and start enjoying more content on Pulse.
