It's not rated for it, but some have reported it working. It's best to stick with the list of recommended SD cards.

If you do have issues with your camera, GoPro will request that you test with a recommended SD card and manually update the firmware. If you purchase a card not on the list, it's just going to be another expense if you experience camera problems and seek assistance.

It's also best to not store your media on the card. Rather, you should offload your media after each shoot and format the card in camera before each shoot. Storing large amounts of data increases the likelihood of issues, corrupt data, and loss of media. In general, half of a terabyte of storage capacity on a microSD is a waste of money for a GoPro camera. Considering the camera will give between 1-2 hours of continuous recording (depending on resolution, frame rate, and features used), having a card that will record more than 12 hours of video doesn't make much sense. Even for extended trips where offloading media isn't convenient or possible, having several 64 GB cards is a safer way to ensure your media isn't lost in case the SD card fails or gets damaged. What are you going to do with 12+ hours of media anyway? That's a lot of footage to review and edit!
