Smart remote compatible with new Gopro Hero 2018 coming in the next update?

i just got for my b-day the new hero 2018 and with bunch of acceosries (from friends dont really know much about GoPro) and the smart remote was one of them inlcuing selife stick with attachement for it which is really cool. but as per the research i did its seems that there is no option to connect to the camera.

my question is: will there be an firmwire update where that option will be added (i beleive is software lack since it has WiFi already) in the coming future?

Hi @adamdxb

 

We're not yet sure about the updates for HERO2018 but you can send your suggestion to our feedback site. 
https://gopro.com/feedback

For now the only way to control that is through Voice command and GoPro App. 

Best Regards,

I’m a bit pissed off… I was told when I purchased the Go Pro smart remote control that it was compatible with the Hero 2018. What a waste of money. I won’t be buying any more Go Pro products.

Hi @bevz76

 

Where did you purchase the Smart Remote?

If this is a recent purchase, you may refer to the same store/channel.

 

For controlling the camera remotely, you may have it paired with your phone through the GoPro app instead.

Pair Your Camera with the GoPro App

 

Thanks!
