changing app selection of camera to google photos?

Trying to create a story using GoPro app on iPad Pro. When asked for pictures and I select tablet, the only option for pictures is what I have on the tablet "camera".  I want the app to give me option of selecting the google photos I have on the tablet as well.  
thanks - bernie

Re: changing app selection of camera to google photos?

hey @berniek,

Make sure you also have enabled all the required read/write permissions for the app. Otherwise the app won't be able to access the photos from your device. See the attached screenshot.

You can verify this in Settings > Scroll down to the App section > Tap on GoPro > Photos > Enable Read and Write.

Give it another go, and post feedback ^^.

Cheers,
aarlekk

Hi @berniek  you have to start from the FEED PAGE instead of the MEDIA page, from the feed page you'll also have access to phone media.
Some help here: https://gopro.com/help/articles/how_to/how-to-create-a-multi-clip-edit-in-the-gopro-app

Haindash -

thank you for your response.  But using my iPad or iPhone I still don't see how to change fo the FEED page from the MEDIA page.  I followed the link but my devices dont allow me to switch.  Any suggestion?

Hello @berniek. Just so we are on the same page, will you be able to post a screenshot of the page or screen that you have on your iPad? Thanks!

@berniek 

When you open GoPro App - bottom bar shows CAMERA / FEED / MEDIA / SETTINGS

Under the FEED screen you will see a blue clapper icon in the bottom right corner, that's where you can access your phone media.
