Best Remote App for Hero 8 and &

[ New ]

All I want to do is with a Android phone is use the remote to turn the camera on and off and view the video while recording.
I have the MYK for Hero 7 but it doesn't display video and it says its not compatible with Hero 8.

Can you recommend a remote app for android that will turn on and off the camera and display video on the phone?

Thank you!

Either GoPro Quik (which is free) or Tools For Hero's (which is paid).

I should have mentioned at first I tried GoPRo Quik (on the same phone as MRK)  but it would not stay Bluetooth connected even with the camera only 3ft away and would take forever to reconnect so it was unusable. Thats why I went to MRK.    Maybe there is an update to Quik that will work better?.

Your camera uses bluetooth to connect to the phone initially, things like wireless earbuds which also use bluetooth can end up competing for the phone's bluetooth connection.  So make sure you have those turned off first.
