Introducing the Read-Along Feature

audiobook2_0You may have noticed an update last week to the Faithlife app on your iOS device. It was a big one. For a long time, we’ve been working on a read-along feature that allows you to listen to Scripture as well as read it through the Faithlife app. It works with the Lexham English Bible New Testament, and we plan to enable it for additional resources in the future.

How to unlock audio on Faithlife

It’s easy. If you don’t have the app yet, download it. If you do, update through the app store. Then, while you’re at it, tell a friend. They’ll thank you!

How to find the read-along feature

  1. Open the Faithlife app.
  2. Open the Lexham English Bible.
  3. In Read mode, swipe down on the New Testament text to reveal the toolbar.
  4. Tap the speaker icon in the top right corner.
  5. Lean back and enjoy!

Android users and Logos desktop users should see the same update coming very soon. We’d love to hear from you about how you plan to use the read-along feature. Let us know in comments.

Don’t Go Hungry in 2013

Man does not live on bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” (Matthew 4:4).

Don’t just feed your stomach in the coming year, feed your soul. Join together with your friends, your church, or us, and make a New Year’s resolution that will bring you closer to God through His Word. Resolve to read through the entire Bible.


Reading through the Bible is an incredible opportunity to dig into the Word and grow in your understanding of the scriptures. Reading the entire Bible gives you the ability to identify major themes, topics, and ideas that span from Genesis to Revelation. Faithlife makes reading through the whole Bible easy. Just join or create a group by logging into Faithlife.com. Invite your friends, family, or church to become members too! Select the “Read the Bible in 2013” reading plan and dive into the Word. As you and your group work your way through the reading plan together share prayer requests and notes with the Community Notes feature. The digital reading plan will not only notify you about what to read, but if you miss a day, it will find a way to catch you up!

2013 is only a week away. Make a New Year’s resolution that will feed your soul. Read the entire Bible in a year with Faithlife.
