How Do I View My GoPro Photos and Videos on My Phone or Tablet (Outside of the App)?


How do you play back videos or photos on a phone or other mobile device?

Where does it apply?

  • GoPro App


In order to play back videos or photos on your mobile device outside of the GoPro App, you must first download the files to your device via the GoPro App. There won't be anything in the GoPro Album on the phone unless you download the files with the GoPro App first. There is no automatic sync functionality.

Here are a couple of images showing how to download files from the GoPro App to your mobile device:

Once you have the file downloaded onto your phone you can find all your downloaded content in a "GoPro Album" in your phones default photo application, typically this is in the "Gallery" application on Android devices, and in the "Photos" application on iOS devices.

From this point you can go ahead and share your photos and videos out to the world however you'd like.
