Hello and good day Huawei De Guzman. Thank you for reaching out and for the inquiry. The DJI Osmo Action supports an external microphone and can be connected to a third-party microphone via the DJI official 3.5 mm Adapter. Please note that the 3.5 mm Adapter for the DJI Osmo Pocket could not be used for DJI Osmo Action. Currently, this accessory for DJI Osmo Action has not been released yet. Please pay attention to the update on the official website at www.dji.com. Thank you for your valued support.

Thank you DJI Stephen for confirming that there will be a 3.5mm Microphone Adapter specifically for the OSMO Action.  Looking forward to seeing this accessory along with so many other accessories advertised on your website for the OSMO Action as well.

So far we just keep getting the "Soon", or "We don't have a date yet" responses to this question.

Any news about that precious adapter ? When will be released ? If you can't create the adapter update your firmware in order to work with all normal adapters...

It's been over 6 months now with no external mic capabilities. Im about to sell my Osmo Action and go back to gopro because the sound out of the action is abysmal and not usable for my vlog videos. At least I can purchase an adapter for gopro. Jeez... As usual DJI rushes out a product before any of the must have accessories are ready. Y'all did the same thing with the pocket. Waited an entire year before you released an underwater case. This isn't rocket science. It's a 3.5mm adapter. Come on DJI. I love this camera, but you're forcing me to sell it.

Will it require a TRRS mic or TRS mic like the Osmo Pocket?

I think I would use a whole external recorder and just replace the camera audio in post production.
