GoPro Hero 8 Black and GoPro Max 360 are launched on October 1, 2019. This new GoPro action camera Hero 8 Black gets many new upgrades and features, compare to the Hero 7 Black. Many new customers may not familiar with how to operate GoPro Hero 8 Black. For example, how to pair it with a mobile phone. Now, follow the below steps to capture your wonderful moment.


Pairing your GoPro Hero 8 Black with your mobile phone via the GoPro App lets you control your camera more easily. Once connected, the smartphone starts showing everything that the action cam lens is capturing, dispensing with the use of the LCD Touch BacPac accessory on models that do not have an integrated display. The feature is available for Android and iPhone (iOS) free of charge.

In addition, the application encompasses various functions, such as changing the mode of capturing and sharing photos and videos directly with Instagram Stories. In the next step, learn how to pair your GoPro Hero 8 with the app.

Step 1: Intall GoPro APP in your mobile phone

Step 2: Press the "Get started" button on the home screen. Then tap on an email address to continue accessing the application;

Step 3: The GoPro App will fill in the "Email" field with the address you selected in the previous step. Click "Create account" to log in from the email or "Connect to Facebook" to use your social network credentials;

Step 4: The GoPro App asks you to create a unique password for it. Enter the code, check the box "I confirm that I have read and agree to the terms of use" and click "Create account". In the sequence, choose whether or not to accept sending customization data;

Step 5: Press the "Connect Camera" button to start the pairing process. On the next screen, choose your GoPro model;

Step 6: The app will indicate the procedures you should do with your camera. First press the "Mode" button on your GoPro 8 to turn it on and tap "Continue" in the app. Then press the Wi-Fi button, located on the side of the camera, and click "Continue";

Step 7: The GoPro App will find the Wi-Fi network and start connecting to the camera. A box for entering the password created from Hero 8 will appear. Enter the code and press "Continue". If you have not created any passwords, it will be "goprohero" on Hero2, Hero3 and 3+ models. On the GoPro Hero4 (Session, Silver and Black), Hero+ and Hero + LCD, you must enter the PIN displayed on the camera screen. For other versions, refer to the manual to see the default password for Android (iOS does not require a password);

Step 8: The network name of your GoPro will be displayed on the screen. Tap on it, wait a few minutes and that's it: the app will be paired with the camera, showing everything that is being captured by the lens.
