Automatic Live View Gone - PLEASE STOP REMOVING FEATURES FROM THE APP!

The “In-App Notifications” setting is completely gone (for the third time) with the last update to the IOS version of the RING app. This is the toggle that allowed the iPad to open a live, full-screen view of the camera when an event/notification occurred… no click of a banner… it just worked. It made for a great setup and use of an older iPad.

RING devs have a terrible record of randomly removing settings from the app. It’s really strange. Their solution in a similar thread was to buy some other product from Amazon that connects to RING devices. The person who started that thread said they bought one for $120 and it didn’t do live view either.

Ditto here. Possibly the most annoying aspect of owning Ring devices.

Thank you for sharing your experiences with us, neighbors! We are always working to add to and improve on our features and devices. We’ve recently made a change to the Ring app that did indeed remove this feature. As we always value our neighbors’ feedback, consider this shared with our team here. :slight_smile:
