GoPro App is the software you have to use to access all the media footage from your camera. It also allows you to edit and share the video and photos instantly to any social media connected.
But if you are a new GoPro camera user and want to link the camera with your phone, the first thing you will do is search for the GoPro App. But you cannot find anything named GoPro App. And wondering why can’t find the GoPro app in app store.
Well, GoPro App changed its name to Quik, by GoPro. After adding a bunch of new features and rebranding the Quik by GoPro, it is way nicer than the GoPro App.
What is Quik by GoPro?
In 2021, GoPro changed its entire app and named it Quik. GoPro added tons of features and made it more user-friendly than it was before. GoPro didn’t aware any of their customers that the app is fully rebranded and the name is changed.
That is why the new GoPro users get confused searching the GoPro app.
Here are some key features of Quik:
- You can import photos and videos from your phone, GoPro, or any other camera that can be connected wirelessly
- Offers unlimited cloud storage with 100% quality assurance
- Edit photos and videos quickly
- You can use your phone to control every GoPro camera. Tweaking settings or changing the color saturation is easier than before.
The GoPro camera’s user manual says to download and install the “GoPro App”. The 1-year-old GoPro Hero 9 also has the manual with the instruction to manually tweak the settings by the “GoPro App”.
So customers get very confused when they don’t find the app in the app store.
Can You Still Download the GoPro App?
No. If you search for the GoPro App, you will end up finding the Quik by GoPro.
