We are also waiting DJI to release the SDK to Litchi to support the MA in the Litchi App.

Waypoints are a Pro model feature. I don’t think the Air will get them, or it would have it already. Where is it advertised as a feature?

It's not advertised any more. So I wouldn't buy one now with the expectancy it will be implemented later on.

Just because the SDK is coming out does not mean waypoints will be available for the Air. The SDK will be released as we get closer to the MP2 release as I’m sure they share many components and the SDK is being developed for both of them.

You will probably need to do waypoints like the Spark where the remote must always be connected as the software is flying the mission. It never gets loaded to the AC.

Of course I could be wrong and hope I am, but DJI has not had waypoint missions on anything without Pro in the name.

The spark has limited flight time/range so does not make sense to have autonomous mission capabilty. The air is closer in specs to the pro so waypoints via rc is an insult to air owners imo.
BTW it doesn't need to have pro in the name, my old P3 standard had proper waypoints.

The early phantoms were made in an era when DJI had just 1 consumer line.
Now they 'need' to diversify their products so owners are tempted to upgrade to a more 'pro' model.
Just like al lot of the tech companies are doing.

I think they will add it because it was advertised as having this feature and many of us bought it knowing it was part of the product offering:

I have a phantom 3 Advanced.... no "Pro" in the name and it supports waypoints.

The SDK is for Litchi app to incorporate the Mavic Air into their platform. Once DJI releases it, Litchi will support the MA with all the features Litchi provides to the full line of DJI Drones including advanced mission planning (way points). Agreed it will probably not be available in the Go4 App (if it were going to be offered it would have been included in the latest FW update, no need for a Software Development Kit (SDK) to accomplish the added features ) as this is a marketing tool to sell the Pro & PP.

Well, from that mail it looks like waypoints were not intended for SDK too

Having it in litchi is fine anyway

Yeah.
Litchi is using the DJI-SDK. So why shouldn´t it be possible to have it within the dji go app except that they do not want to add it.

I just tested the beta and it worked fine. I will try to get the Autopilot beta for testing too.

I purchased MA because WP were advertised. When I received (I live overseas) one month later, it did not have it. Now they say, it will, but with unknown when.  
I suspect that when they see this page https://www.autelrobotics.com/evo/ will be the time. Otherwise Mavic Air will be death.

Litchi just added Mavic Air waypoints into their latest beta app ;)

I'd be afraid to use a beta app. I will wait until the real thing comes out, hopefully the DJI go app adds this feature in the next coming weeks.

Drone Harmony also now supports the Mavic Air with waypoints. It is available in the Google Play Store as an unreleased (beta) application.  I flew 3 mapping missions with it today with no problems before the wind picked up.
