When using Remote live view shooting via the Camera Connect app on my 6D Mark ii, the external flash won't fire. I believe this is because Live View is automatically enabled on the camera. Is there a way to enable the speedlight while in liveview?

Are you using a non-Canon, non-ETTL flash? Is the flash in the hotshoe? I am not sure if the Camera Connect app is causung your problem, but disabling "Silent Shooting" may help.
All Canon cameras default to "Silent Shooting" in Live View, and this disables flash shooting.
Canon brand flash units, and many 3rd party ETTL flash units, will automatically "Disable'" Silent Shooting but many radio triggers and other flash units will not.
You might fix your problem by going into the "Silent LV shoot" menu and then selecting "Disable".
