Reasons to use voice commands on a Hero 9

Voice commands are convenient- You can start and stop recording without having to fiddle with buttons. This is great when you’re in the middle of an action packed moment and don’t want to take your hands off what you’re doing to reach for the camera.

They’re fast – When you’re in a hurry, voice commands can be a faster way to control your camera than button presses.

They can be helpful when you’re wearing gloves- If it’s cold or you’re wearing gloves, voice commands can be a convenient way to operate your camera since you don’t have to take them off to press buttons.

They are convenient while mounted- If your GoPro is mounted somewhere, you can use voice commands to start and stop recording without having to reach for the camera. This can be helpful if you’re shooting from an awkward angle or don’t have easy access to the camera.

Voice commands can be useful in low light situations- If it’s dark or difficult to see the camera’s buttons, voice commands can be a handy way to control your GoPro.
