The GoPro Hero 8 and GoPro Max 360° cameras require a special pairing process for activating the camera’s WiFi adapter. This tutorial shows how to enable the WiFi network using the WiFi Connector for Hero 8 app. The app pairs your device with the GoPro camera over Bluetooth and enables the camera’s WiFi network. You can then use the WiFi network for live streaming or camera control (e.g. with the Camera Suite or Camera Controller apps).
The app is available for several systems and can be downloaded here.
The following sections show how to enable the WiFi network on each platform. This step has to be done each time you want to use the WiFi network. It is also important to apply each step in the same order as shown in the video.
Microsoft Windows 10
Apple macOS (10.10 or newer)
