Dear pet parents, welcome to 2021! We want to thank you for supporting the Barkio app and for making our app part of your daily lives. ❤️

This January, we released a new Barkio update (version 2.0.0) on iOS and Android, as well as on macOS, Windows, and Linux.

To get the latest features, make sure to update Barkio on all your devices. If you don't have automatic updates turned on, you can download the update from the App Store and Google Play. The desktop version (macOS, Windows, Linux) will prompt you to update with the next app launch, or you can download the update from our website.

Let's take a look at what's new. ?

Record a video of your dog

With the latest Barkio update, you can now use the Video recording feature and record short videos of your dog during monitoring.

To record a video of your pet, simply tap on the Menu on the Person Station and select Record. You can record short videos of your dog, save them, or share them with your family members and friends.

You can access recorded videos in the Activity log. More on improvements in the Activity log can be found later in this article.

Capture adorable moments of your puppy

Besides the video recording option, we're happy to introduce you to the new Snapshot feature. You can now capture photos of your dog during the monitoring.


With photos and video recording, you can capture any important, cute, or funny moment of your dog and keep them forever. Puppies grow up too fast, so there's no such thing as too many videos or photos of your puppy. ?

New and improved Activity log

Together with the new video recording and photo capturing features, we've improved the Activity log.

You can now access monitoring from the last 21 days, including the audio, photos, and videos. Activity logs older than 21 days are automatically deleted.

Better Barkio experience

Just like with every new update, we fixed some minor issues and bugs that we discovered in the Barkio app to provide you with a better dog monitoring experience. ?

Do you like this new update? Don't forget to rate Barkio on the App Store and Google Play, and recommend Barkio to your friends and pet owners. ❤️
