Beta Testing Application For Google Home

Maybe try asking “Hey Google, sync my devices” if those cams don’t show up in the Home app. If they do, perhaps try taking the cams out of the beta program?

If you are talking about streaming to a Google/Nest Display or Chromecast, this is a well-known, well documented issue and syncing devices will not fix it. A lot of finger-pointing from Wyze, but no solutions.

Having the same issue. I unlinked and relinked a bunch of times. Living in the US. I like the cost of Wyze products and they are growing their company well, but their smart home integration needs a lot of work which it seems that they don’t want to admit to.

The most up to date information was posted in the thread I linked below, there are also some detailed posts by WyzeFrederik in that thread about the challenges they are having. Currently they are implementing something called WebRTC and Google has informed WYZE of a codec issue being worked on. If you read the 3 or 4 posts by WyzeFrederik in the linked thread you will see what I am referring to.

I want the engineering team to look into your problem.
Could you please do the following:

  • Reconnect your account.
  • Note the time
  • Send me a PM with your Wyze account and the time you reconnected?

Also, would you mind telling me if you have other devices and are they showing up in Google?

Thank you,

Is tbis supposed to work?
I haven’t been able to get my WYZE cameras to display on Google Home for a long time. Even when they used to work they took a very long time to show then wouldn’t display very long.

I reconnected my Wyze account today (10/1/2020) at 16:55 EDT. All 10 devices (9 cameras and 1 door sensor) load into Google Home, but I cannot view any cameras on my Google Home Display or Google Home Max Display. The display just shows “Smart Home Camera” then times out after a 30-60 seconds. I can cast the cameras to a Chromecast.

I get the same rrsponse. I thought it was the ssme for everyone.

We set up a Google Hub today, Connected it to our Wyze account. Our Wyze plugs work great, but we get a black screen when trying to view the 3 Wyze cameras. We can view the cameras in the Wyze app, but not on the Google Hub. Please help!

Welcome to the forum.

As far as I know WYZE cameras don’t work with Google Hub.

I mean… They are supposed to. But I’ve never had luck with it streaming properly

WYZE has been saying that for two years but in real life they don’t.

We’ve been working with the Google team to figure out why it works with Chromecasts in many cases but not the hub and we’ve recently identified the problem. We’re working with Google to identify how this can be solved and we are sorry for the poor experience.

I saw another post that theirs was working. I just tried mine and still no joy. Hopefully we will see an update from Wyze and/or Google that resolves this. If I don’t see a renewed commitment from Wyze to “work with” Google, I will probably be looking for other alternatives.
