Let the Bible App read to you.
Twenty times every second, people from all over the world click “Play” on another audio chapter of the Bible inside the Bible App. Just imagine: listening to God’s Word while you exercise, while you get ready for work, during your commute…or whenever you want.1 You might even enjoy listening as you read along. It’s easy:
Tap the speaker icon.
Inside the Bible App, when you see a speaker icon in the menu above the Bible text, tap it, then tap Play. If you don’t see a speaker icon above the Bible version you’re reading…
Tap the version abbreviation at the top of the app. Select any version with a speaker icon next to it. When you return to the Bible reader, tap the speaker icon.
1 Listening while connected to Wi-Fi does not use your mobile data plan. All Bibles that feature audio have a speaker icon next to them. To see all available versions, just tap your current Bible version.
Even one verse at a time.
Several of the audio Bibles we feature can read to you one verse at a time (many play only one chapter at a time). Try listening to the daily passages from one of your subscribed Plans with one of these audio Bible versions:
American Standard Version
Biblica English NIV-UK
Douay-Rheims Challoner Revision 1752
English Standard Version
Good News Translation
Good News Translation (US Version)

Select Bible App platforms even offer advanced audio playback features:
On your Apple device:
- Select the playback speed you want.
- Skip backward or forward 30 seconds.
- Set the playback Timer, and make God’s Word the soundtrack to whatever you’re doing.
On your Android device:
When you select a Bible version that features audio, a play/pause button appears at the bottom, “floating” above the Bible text, to let you begin listening with just one tap. (Choose whether to show or hide this floating button with the “Show Controls” switch.)
