There are at least 4 other threads .... the MIC icon was somehow deleted in the latest iOS App release the other day for the PRO camera.

It does not effect the PC usage or Android app.

 

It will be fixed ASAP... but it may take a week +/-  due to Apple's app process of aproval

I purchased a mycloud to use with Arlo now with the new updates my files don't transfer automatically and the mycloud device isn't even showing up. I call Tec support and they had to escalate it to another dept. I have to wait 48 hrs do you have any other suggestion to get mycloud back online? With my Arlo.

To be honest , I wasn't aware that Arlo worked with mycloud.... was it working in the past before yesterdays app update

you didn't mentioned WHICH tech dept you called, but I'd also call the second one you haven't.

Anytime you get two diff companies products not working together , it can be a headache fiq which one is at fault

Engineering has deployed a fix that should resolve this issue. Users may need to log out and log back in to their iOS app before they will see fix.

 

Please let me know if you are still experiencing any issues with the microphone icon when live streaming using the Arlo iOS mobile app.

I followed the instructions to log out/log in, but there is still no mic icon. I purchased my Arlo Pro just a few days ago, and apart from this ssue, it's great!  I use it to monitor my dog while I'm away. I would like to use the mic function to talk with him and calm him down if needed.

Mic is back in IOS, I had to go to the profile and then logout and log back in.

I also restarted base station before logging off and back in, not sure if that is what fixed the issue.

Just spoke with support.  The fix is supposed to be sent to each acct.  This is a real failure.  Why would we spend hundreds extra to 'not speak' to the intruder?

Weak response from the company.

A recent update on the iOS App came through.. Delete App & Re-download or loggin out your  account and restarting the App are some of the options to make it work..
