Re: Brand new GoPro Hero 7 Black cannot Facebook Live

Hello @redbluff75707. If the case was escalated or submitted for further assistance from the team, Support will notify you by phone or chat of its progress. We checked on the system though but we are not able to pull up any record associated with the email address on your profile. Were you given a case number? We'd be glad to look into the case as well for progress. Thanks!
