What's new on Apple TV?
The Bible App.

Let the message about Christ,
in all its richness, fill your lives…
Colossians 3:3a, NLT

Last month Apple announced their all-new Apple TV, bringing the power of apps to your television experience. And just as the Bible App was one of the first to iPhone, and one of the first to Apple Watch, now the Bible App is one of the first to the new Apple TV:

No connection? No problem. Plans go offline with you.

You can use select Bible versions — and most Bible Plans — even when you're not online.

Enjoy Your Bible Plans…

Anytime, Anywhere.

You probably already know that Bible Plans are one of the best ways you can engage with the Bible every day, giving you just a few passages for each day's reading. You probably also know that many of your favorite Bible versions are available for you to download to your device. But did you know that many Bible Plans are also available offline?

That means that even during those times when you're away from Wi–Fi or you can't connect to your service provider — on the subway, on an airplane, or just when you're "getting away from it all" — you can still keep up with your current Bible Plan.

Here's all you need to do:

Sometime when you are connected, download one of your favorite Bible versions (here's how). Then subscribe to one — or more — Bible Plans (here's how). Downloaded Bible versions are stored on your device, as well as the data for any Bible Plans you've subscribed to.* The Bible App keeps track of which days you complete offline, then syncs them with your online account the next time you're connected again — all in the background.

Try a Plan Offline

*Before you can use Offline Bible Plans, make sure you have the most current version of the Bible App installed. Some older versions of Android and iOS may not be supported. Downloaded Bible versions contain only the text. Each downloaded Bible uses less than 0.2 GB of storage on your device. Not all Bible versions are available for download. Downloaded Bible Plans contain only the devotional portion. Most other functions (e.g., search, videos, image files, audio files, etc.) still require an Internet connection.

Our All-New "Can't Miss"
Feature for Bible Plans

You probably already know that Bible Plans are one of the best ways that you can engage with God's Word every day. But what happens when you're subscribed to a Plan — or, let's be honest, to a few — and you see another Plan that you think you might like? Now, for the first time ever, you can save it for later! Here's how:

Tap on the Plan you're interested in, then tap "Save For Later."

That's it! The Bible App marks that Plan as saved and adds it to a new list called Saved Plans on your My Plans page:

You'll see listed every Plan you've saved, each with a "Start" link right next to it. (When you start a Plan, it moves from your Saved Plans list to your main My Plans list.)

Before you can start saving Plans, you'll need to make sure you have the latest Bible App update for your device. So go ahead and find your next favorite Plan; even if you're not ready to start it right now, you can always save it for later.

God's Word.
Your Heart Language.

We Just Added 102 New Bible Versions in 86 New Languages

Do you communicate in a different language with family and friends than you do at school, at work, or in your community? That language — the one you think in, dream in — that's your heart language. We hope you've already felt the joy and life-transforming power of experiencing God's Word in the language of your heart. But did you know…?

More than a billion people today
don't have that opportunity.

Together with our partners from several visionary Bible translators and providers, YouVersion is working to get the Bible to every person on Earth, no matter where they live or what language they prefer. And now, for the first time in the history of the world, together, we have the tools to see this dream become a reality…within this generation.

In the past six months alone, thanks to the hard work and generosity of our partners, we've been privileged to add 102 new Bible versions to the Bible App, in 86 new languages. (The full list is below.) With these latest additions, that means the Bible App now features 1,200 versions in 868 languages. For free. To anyone in the world who wants them.

Here's how you can help:

  1. Check the Bible App to see if your heart language is there yet. Then use it to engage with God's Word every day.

  2. Share the Bible App with your friends, including those whose first language is different from yours. Help them find any Bibles we offer in their heart language.

  3. Learn more about the world-changing work our Bible partners are doing, and commit to help, whether by praying, serving, or donating.
