Hi GoPro Forum,
I recently saved up a bunch of money to buy a GoPro fusion since I will be traveling around and want to begin making 360 content. While I can fairly easily export a 360 video to either facebook or youtube in many cases I just want a quick tiny planet photo to throw up on instagram or to twitter. This is where the problem happens, while iOS gets a bunch of options for exporting photos and framing up a shot in android the only option is a share button that only shares a 360 image to Facebook. I find this a bit odd since it seems like such a core feature that would be needed.
Now in order to post a cool tiny planet shot I take to instagram I have to first bust out my laptop, import the images, render the image, transfer the image to my phone and then post. This seems a bit odd since GoPro really seems to push the whole ability to share experiences quickly. I know I am one of the few lucky android users who has a compatible phone so I should probably stop complaining about a simple export button but this is a major inconvience to have to face after buying a 700+ dollar camera.
I talked to 3 lovely GoPro support agents as well and each gave me a different option. My favorite answer being "I don't know sorry". The most close to helping told me to go into the files of my phone. I had already done this unfortunately and while the images are there they are stored as two seperate domes since the stiching is done In-App when you view the photos and videos. If the GoPro app team has any timeline on when an export button will be introduced I would love to know. Also if anyone knows a way other than having to buy an iphone just to post a photo to instagram it would be much appreciated.
Sorry for the long post,
Joe a guy who just wants an export button.
Also attaching a screenshot of what the andoird you can see there is no option to export unlike iphone

Thank you for choosing GoPro to capture great moments.
We understand your insight when it comes to Fusion's functionality and shareability especially with Android devices.
To achieve "tiny planet", Fusion files needs to be rendered via Fusion Studio or GoPro App (currently available for IOS users).
We acknowledge and appreciate your feedback. We are continuously working on the improvement of the Fusion system.
Please continue to check our website for updates.

I have been using this but I feel it doesn't produce as high image and also I want an option to do this for video. Thanks for the suggestion though! Its better than being told by GoPro reps - "Hey check out our website constantly for updates praying we will update this to the level that iOS has had". Its just a bit bothersom to have to use work arounds and have limited features on a 700 dollar camera.
Thank you Hector!

What might make this problem easier to handle would be to have access to the Fusion 360 files in our android phones. They can be saved inside the GoPro app, but is there a way to use another 360 editor app to manipulate them in Android?
