Microphone options for Pro Videos on your Galaxy phone

Galaxy S22 Ultra with camera app pro video feature

Your Galaxy phone’s Pro Video feature allows you to adjust the microphone when filming to get the best audio possible. Sounds can be recorded from different directions with the Multi-source microphone options, making your videos' audio crisp and clear. The microphone will capture sounds from behind you, in front of you, or all directions at once. Or, you can connect an audio device to capture sounds instead.

Note: 8K video sharing on a TV is not supported through an HDMI USB-C connection.

Change which microphone is being used

Note: This feature is available on the Note20 5G, Note20 Ultra 5G, Z Flip series, Z Fold series, S21, and S22 series.

Not only can you record and edit in 8K on supported devices, you can also choose additional Multi-source microphone options to make your videos’ sound quality clearer than ever before. Play around with the input options when you’re recording videos in a crowded area so only individual voices and sounds will be heard.

  2. Tap MORE, and then tap PRO VIDEO.
