I have the same problem. According to the user's manual the camera should stop listening for voice commands 1 hour after it's turned off. It doesn't look like it is.

In so many ways this camera is NOT living up to the expectations . No accessories are available . It doesn’t work with a smart remote and you can’t access settings if and when you guys bring out a water housing into Australia . And by the time everything will be available you will have a new camera design with an all new shape to annoy us once again .

Hey gopro, please make the smart remote compatible with hero 9. I have 3 of them. You say that we need to use our phone for remote control, but that is very difficult for watersports, I use it for kitesurfing. A new remote can be fine but please let the old remote still be compatible. Already have a remo remote that is even not compatible anymore with hero 8. Do not forget, a lot of people line me on tbis forum spend a lot of money on your stuff so pleawe a little bit of respect would be fine

A remote for the HERO9 Black is in development. There's more info on this and other elements we're working on here. Thanks.

Appreciate the info, but is there any projections on when the remote available... Myself like others purchased the Hero 9 specifically because of the availability of the Smart remote, has I known there wouldn’t be one immediately available I would not have purchased until it was.. I’m a retired IT Manager and during my career I made a practice of never purchasing Vaporware (promised Technology)

@jefft We do not need a new remote. I already have 3 of them and one remo remote! This last one does not work anymore with hero 8.

If you bringout  a new remote with more functionality that is great but man, keep the current remote compatible to.

And if you do not have a timeline for that, just add it the current remote now with a firmware update.

Most of us spend a lot of money on these cameras and sometimes it is nice to reuse older accessoires.

( bought the media mod for my 8, but not compatible with the 9, because other dimensions for example)

Just sold my hero 6 for the 9 and was planning to sell my 7 for a second 9, but will keep my 7 and skip a second 9.

For me the hero 9 is the most unusefull camera now for me because I need the remote for my watersports and a phone is not an option then.
