The Rapid Ring app has been designed to allow users to respond to a notification or start streaming as soon as possible.
Ring’s new “Rapid Ring” app is now available for users in the U.S. and Canada.
Rapid Ring is a “light” version of the full Ring app, which lets users access video feeds and answer notifications faster.
The app was released a few weeks back for users in Australia and the UK.
Ring rolled out a “light” version of its full Ring app a few weeks back. While the app was initially available only to users in Australia and the UK, it is now available in the U.S. and Canada too.
Since it is a “light” app, Rapid Ring does not offer all of the features that the full Ring app offers. It only offers the ability to activate a Live View and respond to a motion alert or when someone rings your Ring Doorbell.
As Ring explains in its support page, the Rapid Ring app is more of a companion to the Ring app and not a replacement. You will need to use the Ring app to access the more advanced features, set up a new device, or tweak settings. However, you can still access all the communication functions through the Live View on the Rapid Ring app.
Note: You will no longer receive notifications from the original Ring app after you enable notifications in the Rapid Ring app.
