With the GoPro app, your HERO6 Black footage automatically moves to your phone and transforms into a QuikStory™ — an awesome video with effects and music. You can also use the app to control your GoPro, create short clips, share your favorites, and more.


Connecting to the GoPro App for the First Time

1. Download the GoPro app to your mobile device from the Apple© App Store© or Google Play™.
2. Follow the app's on-screen instructions to connect your camera.
Note for iOS: When prompted, be sure to allow notifications from the GoPro app so you know when a QuikStory is ready. For more information, see Creating a QuikStory (page 12).


Connecting to the GoPro App after the First Time

After connecting to the GoPro app for the first time, you can connect in the future through the Connections menu on the camera.

1. If your camera’s wireless is not already turned on, swipe down, then tap Connections > Wireless Connections.
2. In the GoPro app, follow the on-screen instructions to connect your camera.



For details about connecting HERO6 Black to the Smart Remote or Remo (Waterproof Voice Activated Remote), see the user manual for the device at



You can connect your GoPro to Bluetooth devices that track statistics about your activity. That data is then automatically added to your video to create a more engaging record of your activity.

1. Connect your camera to the GoPro app. For details, see Connecting to the GoPro App
2. In the app, open the camera’s settings, then tap Bluetooth Devices.
3. Follow the on-screen instructions.



By default, your GoPro uses the 5GHz Wi-Fi band to connect to other devices. This band provides faster transfer speed than the 2.4GHz band. The transfer speed affects how long it takes for your video and photos to be copied to your phone to create a QuikStory.


To use the 5GHz band, your phone and region must also work with that band. Otherwise, you can change the Wi-Fi band on your GoPro to 2.4GHz.
1. Swipe down, then tap Connections > Wi-Fi Band.
2. Tap 2.4GHz.
