How to Access Live View

Live View provides video and sound directly from a camera to the Blink app, or certain Alexa enabled devices.

The XT2 and Mini cameras have a push-to-talk speaker that you access from the Live View screen in the Blink app. Currently, only the XT2 and Mini support Two-Way audio. To learn more about Live View on Alexa, see the article here.

Generally, the landscape orientation (sideways) provides a full screen image, and the portrait orientation (taller) shows a view that fills the screen width, but you can use 'pinch to zoom' gestures to navigate the image.

To access Live View, tap the Live View icon Live View icon from your home screen for the camera you would like to view.
