How do I connect an external microphone to the Action One?

2020-10-21, 0:01 AM

I have recently purchased the Motorola Action One phone with the purpose of shooting videos for YouTube. I have an external shotgun microphone. I purchased a TRRS to TRS conversion adaptor. Unfortunately, it only worked with my old Samsung Galaxy J3. The Action One did not recognize it. I purchased a second TRRS to TRS adaptor that specifically advertised "CTIA", hoping that maybe I just got the wrong adaptor. It still does not recognize it as a microphone being plugged in, it just thinks it's headphone. Any help is appreciated

Hi Scott. First, I apologize for not seeing your post. As for the external mic. Are you trying to use the mic with the stock camera app on the phone? If so, then that's why it's not working. The stock Moto camera does not support external mics. You can however use a 3rd party camera app like Open Camera. In the settings of that app, there is a way to set an external mic. Let me know.
