Bible Lens is Leaving May 31

Bible Lens

So long, Bible Lens.
Thanks for the memories!

Bible Lens

In 2018, we launched Bible Lens to help reveal Scripture in your life’s special moments. And it’s possible that one day this feature could live inside the Bible App.

But, for now, rather than continuing to expand Bible Lens, we’re focusing instead on creating new features that help you seek God every day—like Prayer and Verse of the Day Stories—with more on the way.

Although Bible Lens will be removed from the app stores and will no longer work after May 31, you can keep your Bible Lens moments by saving them to your camera roll before May 31st.

Thank you for being a special part of our global YouVersion Community, and for experiencing this journey with us. We’re so grateful for all the ways you shared each amazing Bible Lens a-ha! moment.

Here’s how you can still create your own

New device? Don’t forget this.


What’s the best app for new devices?

Everyone loves getting a shiny new device during the holidays. They help us stay connected, explore our interests, take pictures and video, even pay for things. As you’re installing all your must-have apps (and helping relatives with theirs), don’t forget the apps that can actually help you and your family draw closer to God every day.

The Bible App lets you read or listen to your favorite Bible versions, learn from great teachers through Plans, and share your journey with others.

Family Time = The Best Time

Train up children in the way they should go [teaching them to seek God's wisdom and will for their abilities and talents]. Even when they're old, they won't depart from it. - Proverbs 22:6 - Family sitting on grass playing Bible App for Kids

Make the most of Family Time.

When you create safe spaces for your kids to play, experiment, ask questions, and most of all — to have fun with you — you build long-term trust and a deeper relationship. Here are some fun, easy activities you can do with your kids to make the most of your time together.

Take a nature walk.

Where you go doesn’t matter, as long as you’re together. Along the way, talk about God’s place in your family, and about your place in His family.

Play “Where are we?”

Take selfies together with fun or mysterious backgrounds, then post them for your friends and family to guess. (Bonus: Try this one with Bible Lens!)

Decorate your Family Verse.

Pick a verse, write it in fancy letters on nice paper, and decorate it together. Examples: Unity, Generosity, Humility, Love, or find your own.

Rediscover why you matter.

You were created in the image of God, and what better day to focus on that than National Selfie Day? Whatever you feel when you hear the word “selfie,” today we want to help you flip the selfie script.

Send a self-portrait through Bible Lens and watch it transform your selfie. See your self(ie) in a positive way, and encourage someone by sharing your discovery on social media. Tag us in your post and use #BibleLens so we can find yours.
