Step 4: Click Next.

Step 5: Now that your account is set up, you can check your account configuration or modify it, by clicking on the Settings button at the top-right corner.

Step 6: Adding a device

The multi-device feature allows you to register additional devices to an existing account. Sending text messages to a RingID will send messages to all devices owned by this RingID, the same goes for calling.

In order to register a new device to an existing account on a device, follow these steps:

Step 7: On the device where you already setup the account: Open the ‘Devices’ tab inside the ‘Accounts’ menu. Then click on the ‘Add device’ button. A window will appear, asking you to type your account’s password:

Step 8: Click on the ‘Export on the Ring’ button. This will generate a Pin code.

Step 9: Now on the new device, go to the Settings > Accounts > General and enter the PIN code you got in previous step.

That’s it. Your devices should be connected for communication and collaboration. To make your first call, enter your contact’s Ring ID in the search bar. Then click the telephone-Ring button.
