Amazon-Skills-Store-in-bubbleThe Church has created Gospel Voice, available as an Amazon Alexa skill and a Google Assistant. With this new skill (for Amazon Alexa) or action (for Google Assistant), you can conveniently listen to Church content, such as scriptures; general conference; Come, Follow Me lessons; music, and the Latter-day Saints Channel radio.

Watch this introductory video from the Church, “Gospel Voice: A New Way to #HearHim.”

If you own an Amazon Echo, just say, “Alexa, ask Gospel Voice to read this week’s lesson.” If you have a Google Home device, say, “Hey, Google, ask Gospel Voice to play hymn number 30.”

Get started on your Amazon Alexa devices by:

Option 1: Saying “Alexa, enable Gospel Voice.”
Option 2: Searching for “Gospel Voice” in the Alexa skill store and clicking Enable.

Then anytime you want to access it again, say, “Alexa, open Gospel Voice”

Get started on Google Assistant devices by:

Option 1: Saying “Hey, Google, talk to Gospel Voice.”
Option 2: While on your mobile device, going to the Gospel Voice action in the Assistant store.

Then anytime you want to access it again, say, “Hey, Google, open Gospel Voice.”

  • Scriptures by chapter (specific verses will become available later this year). You can choose a male or female voice. Try these commands: “Alexa, ask Gospel Voice to read First Nephi chapter one” or “Hey Google, ask Gospel Voice to read First Nephi chapter one.”
