I love the Google assistant integration but it would also be nice just to open the app and cast a camera feed to a Chromecast or Google smart display.
With Google Assistant all you would need to do is say “Hey Google, show front drive on TV” . Opening the app would be unnecessary.
Furthermore if you had a Google Home device you would not even need to find your phone or tablet.
Have a great one and enjoy becoming Wyze.
This is coming soon!
Thank you for the clarification and I apologize for any confusion that I have caused by forgetting that I was one of the lucky few that got in early. There’s a lot to look forward to.
In Youtube, netflix, or just about any video program that works with chromecast, there is a button that you can press that automatically makes it stream to your chromecast from your phone. (Rectangles, with some arcs on the top right corner.) Since I can already ask google assistant to put the video on chromecast, this seems like something that should be fairly easy to implement. I shouldn’t have to verbally ask my phone to cast it when I’m looking at the video on my phone.
I think this is practical, since its already implemented via Google Assistant I think it would be easy to implement this on Wyze app just like YouTube, Netflix, etc… with the cast button. Because when you’re already viewing on Wyze app and would like to see it on a larger screen, I think its practical to have this cast button instead of opening/launching Google Assistant just to tell it to cast what you are already viewing on Wyze app to a Chromecast device. Will also be useful in cases such user with speech disability or if you just don’t want to wake up others while you command Google to cast your camera on the TV.
add my vote for a cast button. While integration with google assistant is nice, there are 2 other things to consider …
- google assistant integration is spotty, and does not always work. and
- sometimes it is easier to cast
finally, a third issue
- showing my wife how to use google assistant is time consuming, especially when google assistant is not working at the time - so my wife thinks google integration is stupid because it doesn’t work reliably.
Please add the cast button to the app. I constantly get “the stream is not available” through Google Assistant, but go to open the app and everything is working just fine. Almost literally all video streaming services include the cast button in their apps these days.
I can View my cameras on phone Google Assistant can’t cast to my TV. It says the Stream from front door cam is unavailable.
Anyone have an answer from Wyze?
I works on the TV for me but I have to say it a few times, first couple of times it plays YouTube videos, I say the exact same thing every time, on the hub & phone it actually shows you what it heard and it hears the same thing each time
I think it’s the Google end with the issue
Google CEO Rishi Chandra Nest’s product boss says it’s time to rethink what it means to ‘own’ a tech product:
“We’re not going to allow the owner dictate how our products work”
