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.

    I noticed the feature on the Logos app on my iPad the other day. Very cool. Haven't had a chance to use it much yet but it would be great if it could follow my bible-in-a-year plan.

    I would love to see a reading out loud feature for all resources. Its already a built-in feature for the iOS on the iPhone and iPad.

    Thanks for the update. I listened to it and it sounds great. I'm looking forward to when it is available for the Bible I use (KJV). I'm an over the road truck driver and it would be nice to be able to use my app to listen to the Bible while I drive (from the phone I can hear it over my BT headset which makes it much easier to listen to).

    Sounds good but the audio does not correspond with what I am reading, for me audio is 6 chapters back from reading. Try to fix it and it will be the best. Thank you. GBU

    I am thrilled to find this! I’m joining a group of ladies who plan to read through the Bible in 4 months with weekly discussions. With by busy schedule this audio Bible will be great!
