Turning on preview automatically on ios app

Earlier preview used to be turned on automatically, every time I connected the cam to GoPro app on my iPhone. Recently, it has changed to a manual process. There’s a “Enable preview” option that has to be tapped on to start preview. Is there a setting to make this ON by default? Thanks in advance.

Thanks @mariustanya for the update. While I understand the benefit of the change, I think it would be better if there was an option in the app/cam to toggle this setting ON or OFF based on user preference.
