Mevo Mic (legacy) deprecation!
The Mevo Mic app is being replaced by Mevo Go. Using your mobile device as a remote microphone will require a Mevo Pro subscription beginning April 1, 2023. You can learn more about Mevo Pro here.
We've developed an additional free app called the Mevo Mic app. This will allow you to bring in audio via a separate mobile device over Wi-Fi and mix it with other audio sources in the Mevo app.
How it works
The Mevo Mic app communicates with camera the same way the Mevo app can. You can either connect to the cameras Wi-Fi hotspot, or you can connect to the same local Wi-Fi network to which both the camera and the device running the Mevo app are connected.
Using this app on a supported mobile device, you can bring in sound from another phone's built-in microphone, a supported external audio device, or any Bluetooth audio device (provided your phone or tablet supports it).
You can add up to three (3) mobile devices as audio sources via the Mic app. This would be in addition to the built-in microphone on the camera itself and any audio sources you have plugged into your mobile device or Mevo Boost.
Installing and Configuring the Mic App
Search for "Mevo Mic" in the App Store or Google Play and download the app. Once the app finishes downloading to your device, you can launch it.
In order for the app to work, you will need to allow it to access your mobile device's microphone. Tap the Allow button to prompt the permission request message to pop up.
After granting permission, the app will prompt you to connect to the same network as your camera if you haven't done so already. Navigate to your device's Wi-Fi settings and connect to the same network the camera is currently using (either the Mevo Hotspot or the same local Wi-Fi network). This will allow all devices to communicate with each other.
Once the camera and the Mic App are on the same connection, the Mic App will indicate if any cameras are detected and prompt you to connect the mic to the Mevo app and configure additional settings.
