The Avatour Host app works with several different mobile devices and 360° cameras to enable real-time remote presence. Reference below to see which devices are compatible.
Android mobile devices + Insta360 action cameras
Avatour can run on most modern mid-to-high-end Android mobile devices running Android 10 or later, with Snapdragon 840 or equivalent chipsets. The Avatour Host app for Android can be downloaded from the Google Play Store.
For real-time 360° capture, you need a compatible Insta360 action camera along with a cable connection. Compatible cameras include the One X, One X2, One R, and One RS. Note that the Insta360 Pro series cameras are not directly compatible with Avatour for real-time capture.
Caution: Insta360 uses a non-standard specification for the cable connection between their cameras and mobile devices. As a result, only Insta360-branded cables can be used. These may be ordered from Avatour, direct from Insta360 or from Amazon - but watch out for counterfeits if not buying direct from Insta360!
