Cloud Video Recording is an optional service from Ring that records and saves up to six months of Ring videos, so you can watch the footage at your convenience—even if you miss an alert. You can view the videos straight from the app, download them for permanent storage, or even share them with your friends and family.
Each Ring device comes with a free 30-day trial of Cloud Video Recording. Here's an introduction to how it works and instructions on how to use it.

The Recent Activity screen, shown below, provides a list of recent Ring events. Tap on an event to view the recorded footage.
Swipe left on an event to view your options. Press the gray button to download, text, email or share the video. Press the red button to delete the video.
