    Is there a difference between the Go app when downloading from DJI directly vs getting it from The Google Play store?

    Don't the links @dji just lead you to the Apple Apps, or Google Play, anyway? ;-)
    What makes you think there would be a difference?
    There is a difference between iOS and Android apps, but not for the site where you download them.

    When I scanned the QR code it just downloaded the app to my phone. I thought it would send me to the Play Store. I am using the app from the Play store currently.
    I am asking because I have seen some people say that there is a difference between getting the app from DJI directly vs from an app store.
    I did realize that there are differences between iOs and Android. Annoying, but whatever

    One major difference, is the Android version is missing the flight SIM.
    NOT a deal breaker, but it is a nice option, on a cold or rainy day. ;-)
    Also, with the recent Go app and firmware updates, there was some camera functionality, that came only to the Android version. The Phantom 3 Pro, now also has 2.7k video, along with it's amazing 4K and 1080p. The Phantom 3 Pro' iOS version will also get this update soon.

    In the past, the google market did not update and have the latest version as soon as the DJI website.
    That's the only difference.

    The download link on DJI's website is sometimes more up-to-date than Google Play. That has been a common occurrence when DJI releases a new version of the Android DJI GO app. For that reason, I'd recommend you always download it from the DJI downloads page. Notice that they link directly to the app -- and, not to the Google Play listing.

    That's what I was wondering then, thanks.
