Understanding the New Features section in the Ring app

Ring is constantly working on new features for the Ring app and Ring devices to help make them easier to use, more powerful and better able to enhance your security. When new features are added to the Ring app or a Ring device, you'll be able to learn about them on the app's New Features section. 

This article will help you understand and get the most out the New Features section.

What is the New Features section?

New Features is where Ring informs our Neighbours about new abilities added to Ring devices or new things you can do with the Ring App. The New Features page will pop up the first time you open the Ring app after Ring releases a new feature.

Ring is releasing new features all the time. Will I see the New Features section every time I open the app?

No. A new feature will only appear in New Features if you are able to use it. If you don't own a Spotlight Cam, for example, you will never see a new feature being added to the Spotlight Cam in New Features.

Will the New Features section help me find the new features in the Ring app?

Yes. The New Features section lists features on small rectangular "cards" that have a small text message and possibly a video about what the new feature is. Simply tap the card to be taken to the new feature in the Ring app. For certain features, the New Features section may also allow you to turn the feature on without leaving the page.

Can I go back to the New Feature section after it disappears?

Yes. You can always go back to the New Features section by doing the following:

  • Open your Ring app.
  • Tap the three-lined icon on the top left of the screen.
  • Tap New Features.

How long does a new feature stay in New Features?

A new feature card will stay on the page for 72 hours from the first time you view it.

What happens if I need more information on a new feature?

Many features in the Ring app have links to specific articles on our online Help Centre.
