Bite-size speaker videos and three other innovations for conference this week


Newsroom has reported on four innovations associated with this weekend’s general conference on October 2­­–3.

1. Refocused Saturday Evening Session

The Saturday evening session this conference is for everyone. It won’t have a specific theme, allowing “for more gospel topics to be taught and permit more general leaders to address the conference,” the First Presidency wrote.

2. New YouTube Live Streaming Location

The Church is moving all general conference live streaming to a new dedicated General Conference YouTube channel, which houses over 50 years of conference archives and makes finding and sharing conference videos easier.

3. Conference Highlight Videos

The Church has started publishing short video segments of leaders’ conference talks, enhanced with background music and imagery, on the General Conference YouTube channel to extend the reach of these messages.

4. Conference Notes

This note-taking feature in the Gospel Library has been available in previous conferences, but it’s worth mentioning again. Conference notes is a way to record questions before and impressions during conference sessions right in the Gospel Library.
