Hero 8 FB Page Live - Android

@GoPro The Android app doesn't have the option to stream live to a Facebook page that we administer. It can only stream to a Facebook account. But this option is available in the IOS version of the app. Pretty strange.... Am I missing some settings or something ? TIA!

@vamsik1256, with the current version of the GoPro App for iOS, the "share to" section has the option to Live Stream to a Facebook page that you manage. If using an Android mobile device, several users were able to live stream to a Facebook Page or Group via RTMP URL. Check out this thread for more information about their workflow: https://community.gopro.com/t5/Cameras/Hero-7-Black-live-stream-to-Facebook-PAGE/td-p/241196/page/2

I understand you can use the RTMP URL method. But why do I have to go the extra mile to do the same thing that you can easily do in the IOS version of the app. Why can't they just implement the same feature in Android version too?

Please add the option for Android users to have the same ability as IOS users when it comes to facebook live and facebook pages we manage.

Please update Android options soon. many people are looking to stream baseball and softball games to live video because college coaches cannot attend tournaments as of right now.
