The new version of the brings the following new features and upgrades:

  • Updates the display logic for battery and flight time alerts.
  • Adds Advanced Gimbal Settings (for Mavic Air 2).
  • Fixes app crashing issues and improves overall stability.

Curious to hear if any of you already had a chance to update your and try out these new improvements. Also, I wonder what DJI means with ‘Fixes app crashing issues and improves overall stability,” might it have anything to do with closing security flaws in the app?

    • Thanks for sharing. I tend not to edit on my phone so I have not yet experienced that. The DJI app for sure seems to be the way forward and I’d expect DJI to keep improving the app.

  1. I updated the app for my Mavic Air 2 and somehow i cannot play with my camera (photo & video) settings like i use too. I am stock with the possibility the choose between photo or video and only able to use the basic settings!!?? Also the new zoom feature doesn’t appear on screen beside the the « record » red icon??? i am suddenly very limited!! Any answer ? I deleted and re-download the app and the problem still occurs.
