[] [ifelixit] Turn your Mi Band 4 as a remote shutter for your phone camera

Hei Mi Band 4 Users,

The new Mi Band 4 has stormed the market and more capabilities added to your wrist. In a short span of time having the Mi Band 4, it has thoroughly impressed me in many ways, like the music playback control feature, but still lacking the Remote shutter feature, although the script to add the Remote shutter for the camera function on Mi Band 4 is small. Hopefully the feature will be available for the next release. Hence, for the time being we still need a third party app to execute this function. There are a few third party app that does this task, but this is my preference.

Mi Band 2/3/4 & Amazfit Selfie app has been around since Mi Band 2, and since have upgrade itself to cater for Mi Band 4 needs a couple of days ago.

Mi Band 2/3/4 & Amazfit Selfie
Head over to Google Play store and download it or click below, and install it on your device.

Mi Band 2/3/4 & Amazfit Selfie

Launch your Mi Fit app, Go-to your Mi Band 4 profile, scroll down untill the Bluetooth address and long press to copy the Mac address. Next, launch the Mi Band 2/3/4 & Amazfit Selfie app and paste the Mac address onto Mac field. Next tap Connect button down below to pair it with your Mi Band 4. Once connected it will send a notification and vibrate to confirm the pairing. Now you are all set to take your wefies via a tripod.

Using Open Camera
Before, we go on, the rude shock is, it is limited to a few Camera app as listed below with their links:-

This time, I am using Open Camera. Once you install any of these Camera apps, just launch it and now you can click away with your Mi Band 4 just by sliding it to the Music function where you will see the Camera app notification and it automatically click the shutter button on your camera app.

Mi Band 2/3/4 & Amazfit Selfie app does the specific task well, just it needs to refine the upgrade to avoid rampant clicking which may lead to the force close of the camera app and the app itself. And of course, limited support of camera apps and upmost pity not the stock camera itself, without the need of others. Lastly, I appreciate the author for the work to bring a simple task to use our Mi Band 4 to the fullest.
