I'll actually be in focus at an arms length with selfie mode. That was so disappointing about the original osmo which was heavily advertised as a selfie camera that is out of focus within 3 feet :-/ Waiting for my Osmo mobile to arrive, my (poorly supported) original osmo is for sale on eBay right now!

So you're saying selfie mode is the best feature?

A lot easier to do a selfie without osmo mobile, a €350 selfie hopefully you get a good price for your osmo on ebay

The Osmo Mobile is not a selfie stick, if your main purpose is selfies then inexpensive selfie stick attached to your phone then you can get that with a $10 stick.
The Osmo Mobile does have a selfie mode with 3 trigger presses but that's the least important features of it.I think the most notable features are Active Track and Motion Timelapse.

Hi Ken, I will ask the question again, can we get motion time-lapse for the standard osmo in the future please!

Well, I'll help him answer this. Unfortunately, no.  Sorry, we tested that function, the hardware limitation of the original Osmo prevented it from functioning well, so it's decided not to add this function.

I can think of a better use.  You can use a tripod and put Osmo Mobile on it, then it active tracks your face, and you can walk in front of the camera

The original Osmo is heavily advertised as a selfie stick with selfie mode etc but it is only capable of out-of-focus selfie stills and video without a $55 "extension rod" which is ridiculous! When referring to selfies I'm talking about walking selfie videos which would be shaky on a normal selfie stick without the Osmo mobile, at least I hope the Osmo mobile will be capable of stable walking selfies at an arms length or it will be the next DJI device I list on eBay. Yes, Active track and Motion Timelapse will be great, it's a shame DJI has so poorly supported the original Osmo that's still lacking such features!! Yeah yeah I know, he hardware isn't capable blah blah blah.

I'm ok with taking a hit on eBay just to get rid of it now before it loses more value and take the best offer I can get for it. The original Osmo has not lived up to expectation. The battery is terrible, out of focus at less than 3 feet which is not only bad for selfie pics and videos but close up artistic shots, DJI has shown no support for it, WiFi connection kills my phone battery incredibly quick, setup takes a long time when turning on and off between shots, there's a bob in walking footage ... need I go on. The original Osmo is really only good at one thing and that's stable stationary (not walking) handheld footage of wide subjects.

I don't think it will be an option. BUT, I'm not in R&D so I can't say for sure as it may be unable to be possible.

Is Active Track feature available for Android users? If not, will it be implemented anytime soon?

Yes, it is. You need a reasonably recent phone to make it work though, at least quad-core
