Hi @danielr15 @rockycreek64566

 

The Smart Remote will work with the HERO8 Black. 

 

Thanks!

At this point we don't know for certain (this is a member to member support community), but the two button remote uses the same communication as the newer Smart Remote, so it shouldn't be a problem. The older two button works fine on the HERO7 Black and there isn't a whole lot of difference hardware wise between it and the HERO8 Black.

@aragon1006
Awesome to hear!

So just for clarification to @rockycreek64566 question, is it safe to assume that since the HERO8 Black will work with the Smart Remote, it will also work with the original 2-button remote (the one that came out with the HERO3+)?

Hi @danielr15

 

We no longer provide support for the Wi-Fi Remote in terms of compatibility with the HERO8 Black.

 

Thanks!
