Registering for Cloud Sync

Before using Cloud Sync you must install a plug-in for your THETA X and register your THETA for Cloud Sync.

Please read before registration

  • Cloud sync is currently only available for the THETA X
  • Only one team can register to use Cloud Sync per RICOH THETA.
  • To use Cloud Sync, a dedicated plug-in must be installed on the RICOH THETA X.
  • To install the plug-in, the RICOH THETA X must be registered in the mobile app.
  • A Wi-Fi connection is required to upload images from the RICOH THETA X to Cloud Sync.
  • Since the Wi-Fi environment connection settings will be configured after the plug-in is installed, we recommend that you install the plug-in under a Wi-Fi environment that is available to you.
  • Make sure that your RICOH THETA is fully charged.

It is recommended that you always use the latest version of the RICOH THETA firmware.
