On the back of their recent drone releases, DJI has announced a new app which is compatible with the Phantom 4 Pro (and Pro+), the Inspire 2 and the Mavic Pro. The DJI GO 4 app has been released on the Google Play store for Android users and will be available by the end of 2016 for iOS device users. There are two DJI GO apps for Android right now, so it’s important that those with newer drones remember to download the GO 4. According to DJI the new app will also support their hugely popular Phantom 4 drone.
The original DJI GO app is still required for older models (apart from the Phantom 4 which is compatible), but those with newer drones will need to download the ‘new and improved’ GO 4.

DJI’s new GO 4 isn’t just an update to their existing GO app functionality, it’s an entirely new app. There are plenty of similarities to the original GO app v3 when it comes to its user interface and to make matters a tad confusing even has the same icon (albeit with the addition of a small ‘4.0’. However, this isn’t just a reskin of what has come before as there are numerous new features to improve the experience for DJI drone pilots. There’s also an updated home screen with shiny new graphics.
One of the most interesting new features you’ll find is what DJI are calling ‘Near Real-time Video / Image Transmission’. This allows the app’s users to receive quicker image transmission to their smartphone or tablet when using FPV mode. While it may not be fully real-time, it’s definitely an improvement.
In-keeping with DJI’s statements which claim they are listening more intently to their customer base, the GO 4 app has functionality for mid-flight control of the camera, which many have been calling for. There’s also a streamlined sharing capability letting you show off your best footage to a global audience.
Apart from the above new features, the DJI GO 4 app also has a better suite of video editing settings. Pilots can use videos recorded from their drone and add in a range of royalty free music and snazzy templates to it with several new songs and templates available at launch with the GO 4.
