iPhone-sized MegaVoice Envoy digital audio player doubles playback duration

Envoy MegaVoice recently announced the release of the Envoy, the newest addition to its line of rugged, solar-powered digital audio Bibles. The Envoy replaces the popular MegaVoice Ambassador Classic, which has been used by ministries to reach an estimated four million people, world-wide.

"The Envoy retains all the best features that made the Ambassador Classic such a strategic tool in the hands of ministries and mission agencies for the past decade,"
said MegaVoice CEO, Charles Cibene. "At the same time, we have doubled the Envoy's memory capacity and reduced its physical size to that of an iPhone."

The MegaVoice Envoy can be loaded with up to 320 hours of audio from any number of sources: radio broadcasts, sermons, evangelism messages, discipleship training, educational materials, Bibles, New Testaments, Bible Stories and more. Organizations and individuals can use their own messages, or they can use pre-recorded content from the MegaVoice Audio Library. The Library carries 8,400 audio titles in 4,615 languages and dialects, all of which is available for use on the Envoy. Search the Audio Library.


The Envoy's navigational buttons are raised slightly so that blind or visually impaired people can easily find what they are looking for. Content is tamperproof, meaning that end users cannot erase or modify your ministry's message.

"Every week, more Scripture titles and languages are added to our Audio Library, so that every man, woman and child will finally have the opportunity to hear the Gospel in their own language," said Mr. Cibene. "Every language we add to the Audio Library brings us closer reaching that goal."

The MegaVoice audio team can load content quite quickly onto dozens, hundreds or thousands of Envoys, for distribution in North America or around the world.

MegaVoice began developing a solid-state audio Bible in 1989, nine years before the appearance of the first commercially available MP3 player. The goal was to help fulfill the Great Commission by reaching more than half the world's population that cannot read, by using digital audio. The result was a rugged, solar-powered audio Bible called the MegaVoice. Today, MegaVoice audio Bibles are being distributed in many languages, world-wide, by partnering Christian missions and ministries.

"The development of the Envoy, with its expanded memory capabilities and smaller size, should help partnering ministries reach even more people with God's Word," said Mr. Cibene. "I encourage anyone who has questions about how the Envoy can help spread God's Word at home and around the world, to get in touch with us through the contact page on this website."
