Controlling Your GoPro with Your Voice

| Home | User Manual | HERO6 |



You can control your HERO6 Black with your voice using a set of specific commands (see list below).


Note: Voice Control performance may be impacted by distance, wind, and noisy conditions. Keep the product clean and clear of debris.



Voice Control works best when you and your GoPro are in close proximity.
1. From the main screen, swipe down.
2. Tap [] to turn on Voice Control.


Note: You can also turn Voice Control on or off from the Preferences menu. Tap Preferences > On Camera Voice Control, then select an option.


3. If this is the first time you turned on voice control, confirm or change the voice control language.
4. Say a command from List of Voice Commands.
5. To turn off Voice Control manually, swipe down on the main screen, then tap []. Voice Control also turns off when your camera automatically powers off. For details, see Auto Off (page 24).


PRO TIP: To extend the voice control of your camera in windy and noisy environments, use Remo (Waterproof Voice Activated Remote). For details, visit



Two types of commands are available with Voice Control:
• Action commands let you immediately capture video or photos. For example, if you just stopped recording video, you can say the command to take a photo or begin capturing time lapse — without having to first change the mode.
• Mode commands are useful if you want to quickly select a mode and then use the Shutter button to capture.


Your camera does not need to be in a specific mode to capture video or photos. You can use the action commands from any mode. Your camera captures video or photos based on the settings you previously selected.
