How to upload to GoPro cloud within the app / download media faster to the app?

I am sorry, but I am new to the GoPro ecosystem and just got my Hero 7 Black today. 

 

1. Is there a way to upload from the GoPro app to the GoPro cloud?

I know that I could let the camera connect to my home wifi for automatic uploads, but on the go when I have only access to different hotel wifi’s I like to save everything in the app and use the GoPro cloud.

 

2. Another thing that bothers me is that loading media files in the app takes a long time and is sometimes clunky (saving them in the iOS  photo library works fast though). Is there a way to improve loading media to the app?

 

thanks everybody for the help. Really appreciate it!

Hi @rene81,

 

Yup you may use hotel Wi-Fi to save or trigger auto cloud backup. 

You just have to configure or set it on your GoPro App cloud settings. 

Just tap on the cloud icon and you'll see that option. 

 

Then make sure your camera is directly plugged in to a wall socket.

 

You should be subscribed to GoPro PLUS to access cloud. 

 

Speed depends on connectivity and SD card transfer performance. 

Best way is to transfer them to your storage instead. 

 

 

Regards,

Cheers!

 

So I suppose there is no way to upload directly from within the app?

I have to use the auto upload or my computer, right?

 

Can I change the auto upload WiFi settings as often as I want to?

 

With best regards,

Rene

Yes @rene81,

 

You can change it.

And there's a way to initiate upload on the app.
