Hero 8 using iPhone Hotspot.

I have a strong Verizon signal, turn on my iPhone Personal Hotspot. I do a live stream with Facebook Live. I can do a FB Live with my home network but when I choose my iPhone Hotspot, it does recognize my personal hotspot and it does not work. I've udpated the software/firmware.

Re: Hero 8 using iPhone Hotspot.

@rtcheroblck8, sorry to hear about the trouble. We'd like to gather a few more details to help us further isolate the issue. What's the phone model used and the iOS installed? Also, what's the GoPro App version?

Hello @rtcheroblck8

 

We have recently released an update for the GoPro app both on Android and iOS.

Please make sure to restart your phone before pairing it with the camera again.

Let us know how if the update sorts out the issue.

 

Thanks!

Re: Hero 8 using iPhone Hotspot.

Hello Everyone!

 

We have received reports regarding Hotspot not being available when live streaming on an iOS device.

Our team is aware of this and we are waiting for updates.

We'll post back once new information is available.

Wi-Fi connection should still work.

 

Thanks!

Ej

Re: Hero 8 using iPhone Hotspot.

Hi,

 

Are there any updates?  I'm attempting to live stream using my GoPro 8 & 7 and my iphone 11 pro as the hotspot and the device with the GoPro application on it.

 

Thank You,

Joe Anderson
