'GoPro HERO12 Black' can be remotely controlled by connecting earphones and microphone via Bluetooth

The GoPro series is equipped with a voice control function that allows you to start and stop shooting or switch shooting modes with voice commands such as 'GoPro, video start'. With

the GoPro HERO12 Black , which was released in September 2023, it is now possible to connect Bluetooth earphones and send voice commands remotely, so I actually tried voice operations using Bluetooth earphones.

With GoPro HERO12 Black, you can listen to operation sounds and send voice commands via the earphones by connecting the earphones with a microphone function via Bluetooth. Let's try connecting AirPods Pro to GoPro HERO12 Black.

First, tap 'Pairing' from the GoPro HERO12 Black menu.

When the earphones are ready for pairing, put them into pairing mode.

For AirPods Pro, press and hold the button on the back of the case to enter pairing mode.

When GoPro HERO12 Black detects the earphones, 'BT Audio' will be displayed on the screen, so tap it.

Pairing is complete when 'BT Audio' is displayed in blue. From next time onwards, just turn on the GoPro HERO12 Black and it will be connected to the earphones.

Once you have established a Bluetooth connection, you can operate your GoPro HERO12 Black by simply speaking voice commands such as 'GoPro, video start,' 'GoPro, video stop,' and 'GoPro, power off' while wearing the earphones. The list of voice commands that can be used is as follows.

Below is how to actually perform voice control with earphones connected to GoPro HERO12 Black. Even in situations where the voice cannot be heard directly, voice control is possible within the reach of the Bluetooth connection, so it seems useful in situations such as ``operating the GoPro HERO12 Black attached to a helmet.''

Although AirPods Pro is used in the above movie, remote control was also possible with Sony's earphones ' WF-1000XM4 '.

In addition, GoPro HERO12 Black is available on the official website and electronics retailers. At the time of article creation, it is available at Amazon.co.jp for 63,800 yen including tax.
