How To Use The YouVersion Bible on Alexa

Published by:

The Bible App on Amazon Echo – Verse of the Day – YouVersion

Need inspiration from God’s Word? Just ask. Amazon Echo is hands-free, voice-activated, and always on. When you add the Bible App to your Amazon Echo, inspiration is always just a question away. Speak, and let God’s inspired Word speak to you.

 

Alexa: “Play the Bible”

Alexa is Amazon’s “virtual personal assistant” who responds to voice commands for playing your favorite music, controlling products in your home, giving helpful information, and even, playing the Bible! Almost two years ago, Amazon added the YouVersion Bible app to Alexa’s vocabulary. You can use a voice command to hear a special passage from the Bible, or hear the verse of the day. You can even hear the Bible read by professional narrators. With today’s technology, all we have to do is ask—and we can hear the Bible! Engage with the Bible—in every sphere of its influence!

 

Now you can experience the Bible App on your Google Home or Amazon Echo devices. Just start with the same “Ok Google…” or “Alexa…” that you use to play music, answer questions, or add strawberries to your grocery list.

Google Assistant:
“Ok Google, talk to YouVersion Bible”

Ask for any book, chapter, or verse – here are just a few examples, but you can try whatever phrasing feels most natural to you

“Ok Google…

  • …tell YouVersion Bible to read Luke.”
  • …tell YouVersion Bible I want to listen to First Corinthians chapter 13.”
  • …ask YouVersion Bible to read John 3:16.”
