    I've not updated my firmware to the latest because the DJI GO App isn't yet available for Android devices, which quite frankly I think stinks. Is it common for them to make upgrades to only half the supported platforms (iOS v.s. Android), while the other half has to just sit & wait? Does it take significant time between platform releases?

    I agree...what is DJI's definition of "coming soon?"

    Apple guys had to wait when the P3 first came out. And no, it doesn't take significant time. You can, however, update the FW and use the existing Pilot app w/o a problem.

    I'm not DJI person, but I believe it's "soon." :)

    Basically it's not so different from DJI Pilot app (but the name), especially "camera" menu... And old Pilot app has no problem with newer FW. Video editing method may have big difference. I think. :p

    Should be any day now.. Don't know what the hold up is.. Last beta version I ran was pretty darn stable.

    Ironically, the video editing stuff is of the least interest. I have no desire to try and edit video properly on the tablet... I'll stick with Premiere and AfterEffects on the computer.

    I've read approx 70 posts here and on rcgroups of guys who have upgraded without the go app.

    Ok. Thanks. I guess all of them are positive post? No problem arising. I took your last words to make a search by string "upgrading without the go app" Just to have a clear mind about it. Thanks again.

    I heard from a beta tester that it's in its final phase of testing and we should have it within a week or so.

    We heard next week. Even within this very thread it's been said to be "any day". Not sure of you are also looking for the hour and minute.

    There is no hurry here for the android version of GO. The FW upgrade didn't add anything of noticeable value, so the GO app isn't going to give you any features that you don't already have.

    A lot of the iOS users are reporting their devices running less hot, which leads to lagginess and crashing. Also one of the beta testers said the app ran more smoothly on his Android device compared to the current pilot app.

    So I would say that definitely adds something of noticeable value.
