Re: Hero8 Android app

The APP you're refering to does not have an option for the Hero8. It stops at Hero7. Do I just sellect Hero7 and hope it works?

Re: Hero8 Android app

Please update your app @epicwave41462

 

 

HERO8 should be available. 

If update is not available, just uninstall the app and then reinstall it.

Can you please send a screenshot? @epicwave41462

 

 

We'll check on that.

Also we just need to know the brand and model of your phone. 

 

 

Thanks!

Re: Hero8 Android app

My phone is a Moto X Second Generation running Android 5.1.

I see a note that the Gopro APP Isnt compatible with 5.1.

Great! I need to buy a new pohone to use my gopro?

This is terrible news!
