Inoreader’s Features You Don’t Want to Miss

There are several distinctive features that differentiate Inoreader from other RSS readers and news aggregators: These features collectively enhance your content aggregation, reading, and organization experience within Inoreader.

Below, you’ll discover Inoreader’s standout features along with how to effectively utilize them.

Content Display Options

Inoreader provides various options for customizing and displaying your feed. You can easily transform the layout to suit your preferred method of consuming information. For instance, when quickly scanning through a high volume of headlines, you may opt for the List view. If you find your eyes getting overwhelmed, you can switch to the Card view or Column view for a more manageable reading experience.

The core aspect of using Inoreader revolves around consuming content. When you don’t often visit a particular feed, it’s common to accumulate a lengthy list of unread articles. Fortunately, it’s effortless to tidy up this list and focus on reading only the most recent content, if that’s your preference.’

Robust Search Feature

Inoreader boasts a search engine that enhances your content discovery. Every incoming article in your account is meticulously indexed, ensuring comprehensive search capabilities. To initiate a search, simply use the search bar provided.

Once you obtain search results, Inoreader empowers you with various filtering options. You can narrow down your search results based on tags, sources, feeds, folders, content from subscribed feeds, or encompass all known feeds within Inoreader. Additionally, if your initial search doesn’t yield the desired results, you have the option to expand the search scope to encompass all public articles that Inoreader is aware of.

Inoreader goes a step further in enhancing search capabilities by supporting complex searches created through an advanced query builder. This empowers users to precisely filter and access the content they’re looking for, even when dealing with complex search criteria.

With Inoreader, users can establish rules that automatically filter, tag, or categorize content according to specific criteria like keywords or authorship. This feature proves invaluable for efficiently managing extensive feed subscriptions, guaranteeing that users are presented with content that aligns with their individual interests and preferences.

Rules within Inoreader serve as an additional layer of content processing automation. Within a rule, you establish a condition, akin to the criteria used in filters, and designate a corresponding action if the condition is satisfied. For instance, you can craft a rule that stars an article and adds a tag when the article’s title contains a specific keyword.

Rules in Inoreader are versatile, supporting multiple actions, including sending notifications to the mobile application or saving content to services like Pocket. This level of customization allows users to tailor their content management precisely to their preferences and workflow.


Highlighters in Inoreader serve a valuable purpose when reading articles. They allow users to automatically highlight specific words or phrases within the text. For instance, you can utilize a highlighter to ensure that every instance of “Prince Harry” is highlighted in the feed articles list, making it easier to spot and focus on the content that matters most to you. This feature enhances the reading experience and streamlines the process of identifying key information within articles.

Monitored keywords

Keyword monitoring proves highly valuable when you wish to track a specific search term. To utilize this feature, simply perform a standard search within Inoreader and then click on the “Monitor keyword” button. This action will generate a new item in your sidebar dedicated to that keyword. Initially, it may appear empty, but as new articles matching your search terms are published, it will begin to populate with relevant content.

To keep you informed, an unread counter will also be displayed next to this item when new articles become available, ensuring you stay up-to-date with the latest information related to your selected search term.


Inoreader provides the option to create notes at both the article level and the annotation level. When text is highlighted within an article, users can add a note at the top of the article where all the highlights and notes are consolidated for easy access. It’s important to note that these notes are always kept private, ensuring that your annotations and comments remain confidential and personal. This feature allows users to enhance their reading experience by adding contextual notes and insights to articles, making it easier to recall and engage with the content later.


Inoreader allows users to create annotations in two distinct locations: at the article level or at the text highlighting level. Additionally, Inoreader offers a practical system folder that compiles a list of all annotated articles, making it a convenient feature, especially as you process an increasing amount of content. It’s worth noting that all annotations are designed to be private and cannot be shared, although the ability to share annotations could potentially be a useful feature in certain contexts.


As your collection of feeds expands, maintaining organization becomes crucial to prevent chaos. Folders serve as a fundamental tool for structuring and categorizing your feeds. One notable feature of folders is that a single feed can belong to multiple folders simultaneously. This flexibility allows you to group feeds within a folder based on a particular subject while also regrouping feeds from the same source in a separate folder. 

To manage your folders in Inoreader, click the gear icon near the “Feeds” section (as indicated below).

From there, you can create new folders, rename existing ones, and organize your feeds to suit your preferences and organizational needs.

Folders serve as a collection of feeds, and interestingly, they can also be utilized as an RSS source themselves. When you enable the RSS feed link for a folder and share it, individuals can subscribe to that folder. In doing so, users receive content from all the sources within the folder, effectively consolidating them into a single source. This feature is particularly useful for bundling together all your content publishing sources, making it convenient for people to subscribe to and access all your content through a unified source.

Folder properties provide you with the option to configure the number of days to retain articles within a folder. By default, this setting is typically configured to 30 days.


The last but certainly the most interesting feature of Inoreader is Broadcast.

This feature allows you to share articles you’ve read, making them visible on your Inoreader user profile page. To access this page, you need to be a registered Inoreader user. It adds a social dimension to Inoreader, where you can gain followers, similar to a social media platform. This feature can be particularly valuable for team collaboration, as team members can use it to share content they find interesting enough to showcase on their profile pages.

Additionally, your Inoreader profile page displays other noteworthy information, including recent activities, bundles, followers, and connections (provided you have configured them). This comprehensive profile page offers a holistic view of your interactions and connections within the Inoreader community, fostering engagement and sharing of valuable content.

These features are just the tip of the iceberg because Inoreader offers a wealth of functionalities and capabilities that go beyond the typical expectations of an RSS reader.
