What is DJI Mimo?

Apple (iOS) Users 

The DJI Mimo app can be downloaded for free for iPhone through the App Store. Currently, Mimo requires an iPhone running iOS 11.0 or later for compatibility. To take advantage of all features including stereo audio recording, it's best to ensure your iPhone is running the latest version of iOS (iOS 14+). 

Android Users

Unfortunately, the DJI Mimo app is no longer available for download through the Google Play Store. However, the app is available for easy download through the DJI website. DJI Mimo for android can be downloaded here. Downloading through the DJI ensures that you will always have the latest version of the app ready to go. 

Connecting DJI OM5 to Mimo

Before connecting your OM5 to DJI Mimo, make sure your smartphone is securely attached to the OM5 and has Bluetooth enabled. Power on your OM5 and open the DJI Mimo app. A notification should automatically appear on your screen prompting you to connect to OM5. If this prompt does not appear, visit your smartphone’s Bluetooth settings. If this does not work, power-cycle the OM5 and try again. 

Still have Issues?

If you’ve read this guide and are still having issues, it’s a good idea to check whether your phone is compatible with the latest version of Mimo. It’s possible that you are attempting to connect an unsupported smartphone. You can view the full list of OM5 compatible smartphones here.
