I have two GoPros (Hero4 Black and newly acquired Hero8 Black) and yes ... a Samsung A50 as all of you. I have all the latest Gopro Hero8 1.20 firmware and Android App installed and Android 9 Kernel 4.14.62-16641116.
Interesting to see that:
- the Hero4 Black connects perfectly
- the Hero8 Black does not whatever I try (and yes I have read everything and I have tried everything and still doesn't work). It connects via Bluetooth and says "we found your GoPro" and all that but then it will not connect via WiFi. I tried manually connecting the WiFi but the Hero8 doesn't even appear on the WiFi list. Why make things so complicated? Why can the Hero8 WiFi be easily visible? Surely that is not just a problem with Samsung, it looks like a combination of problems from both sides.
Also, WHY do I have absolutely no issues with the Hero4 Black but with the Hero8 Black nothing works?
If I cannot connect my phone to the Hero8 Black I cannot upload anything easily to the net and the GoPro Plus subscription is no longer so interesting....
Alixhavz, similar to you, the GoPro App on my A50 still does not connet to my Hero 5 after the update. However, unlike boldpeak578, I did not uninstall and re-install the app. Good to know it worked for him. It remains incredible that the App on my old Samsung A5 continues to connect without problem to the Hero 5.
