Arlo/Netgear is a worthless company. I have been unable to access my videos on my personal computer because I do not have Google Chrome and Netgear/Arlo has been working on this issue for over 3 months, with no resolution and now the only way I can access my videos, Arlo app, does not work!!! THIS IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE AND I WILL TELL EVERYONE I KNOW TO NEVER PURCHASE A NETGEAR PRODUCT!!! Called into customer service and was asked to trust and bear with them while they work on it....WHAT A JOKE!!!! BEYOND FRUSTRATED AND OUT OF A LOT OF MONEY THAT I CANNOT GET BACK!!!!

It is maybe the first time I use it on my new phone that has a later Anroid.
My phone before was a CAT S60 and now it is a CAT S61.
So I suppose it is a new crap software problem since previous stuff works??
No testing from Arlo?? Android 8.x is the latest?

 

I had an issue before that is not ansvered. That is your bad battery problem.
Buying this crap as premium and later find out that you use the lowest bidder of crap batterys is to be cheeted.

Wife and I have been unable to launch the Arlo app to view the Arlo Baby monitor since the update to 2.6.3.2300 on 21Nov18 from our phones running Android 8.0.0. Sony Xperia XZ and Xperia Z1 Compact. The app immediately crashes.

We have an older tablet running Android 5.1.1, that does not appear to be affected negatively by the update. Sony Xperia Tablet Z.

Is anyone else having the inability to access?
Thanks all. Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving.

System buggy when I installed it, but functional.  App reporting cameras and base offline (apparently false reports).  2 releases later, now audio messed up and app crashes often.  Its getting worse!

 

Anyone at the helm at Arlo?

Also the camera's are still operational because they are sending alarms to the phone....the phones (hwich are similar Samsung) just can not start the app.  I have never had a problem since I have had these camera's which is just over a year.

Agree... now the latest version in Nov 2018 will not open at all, it crashes EVERY time. Doesn't seem that anyone at Arlo cares about informing its users of their status with this problem.
For now I downloaded the version, just prior to the latest one (the APK file), uninstalled the current version, then installed the downloaded APK file. Now everything works fine, for now. I then turned OFF "Auto-Updates" in Settings so that the current update will not install again.
I will definately consider changing to another camera system if this is. How Arlo treats their users. Also go change your "App Rating" of their software!!

App won't even open on my phone (Android). I uninstalled and reinstalled. It hasn't been giving notifications all day. My husband can open the app on his phone (also Android) and see system is active. All cameras active. No recordings in the last 24 hours. What's going on?

I FINALLY got the update I needed from Oct. 30 installed and the app working. Beginning to think I need a more reliable camera system. 😞 Thank you for assistance.

I am on Android 8.1.0 and the app keeps crashing for me as well.  I am a new user.  I am not able to get either of my two cameras to connect and I've been on hold, in line to speak with support on the phone for 57 minutes now.  I am very under impressed thus far.

To confirm, I am on Android 8.1.0 too, and I'm noticing a lot of others with the problem are mentioning the same. I submitted a crash report so let's hope they have enough to go on.

 

The fact Netgear decided to release a broken update immediately before a holiday is beyond stupid.

The Arlo App quit working on my android phone. Contacted support...but could not resolve issue. Live camera feed can be viewed in lap top, but not on phone. Arlo support informed us they will 'escalate' problem and advise.

Arlo app on phone has stopped working "Arlo has stopped". Uninstalling and then installing again does not resolve problem. It has been working OK when check yesterday now it is stopped. A real pain as I am away and therefore unable to look at base station.

My Arlo app auto updated last night and since then it will not load on to my samsung tablet.
The screen flashes up saying app needs to close.
Tried reinstalling but with no luck.
My whole system is based around my tablet and now its totally useless.
Does anybody else have this problem?
Any suggestions welcome
Thanks
