Check for software and firmware updates for your Gear 360

A Note20 checking for firmware updates for the Gear 360

Not only should you update the Gear 360 app, you should also update the firmware on the Gear 360 itself. This keeps your Gear 360 performing at its best and fixes any minor glitches. The software and firmware are not always updated automatically, so you should occasionally check for updates for both of them.

Update the software or firmware

Don't worry, you don't need to open up your Gear 360 to update its software or firmware. You can do it right on the Gear 360 app.

Update the Gear 360's firmware

On your phone, navigate to and open Samsung Gear 360 (New). Tap Settings, and then tap Firmware version. Tap CHECK FOR UPDATES. If an update is available, follow the on-screen prompts to apply the update.

Update the Gear 360 app's software

On the connected phone, navigate to and open the Samsung Gear 360 (New) app. Tap Settings, and then tap About Gear 360 App. Tap UPDATE NOW, and then wait for the update to install.

Alternatively, you can use the Play Store to update the Samsing Gear 360 app.
