GoPro Hero5 Black voice activation demo Review


One of the big new features of the GoPro Hero5 Black is the voice activation, you simply speak one of a number of terms and the GoPro does as you request.

Having used and been amused by Siri for a good couple of years, I was half expecting the GoPro to order me a taxi rather start recording, but annoyingly all the commands I tried (it was the full list) appeared to work.

As exciting as a ten minute video of me shouting at a GoPro would inevitably be, here’s a quick abridged version!

For those of you interested, here’s the full list of commands. Just a warning, these only work for the Hero5 and not the 4 unless you shout really loud! Please, if you do decide to shout at your Hero4, tweet us your videos and tag #shoutatgopro
