Landscape View For Tablets

Please please please implement this. It seems like table stakes for having an app for ipad so would have assumed it was already done.

I too am interested in landscape support. I use my iPad on a stand and it annoys me having to remove it and turn it 90º, and then turn it back to continue using it with other apps.

This is unbelievable, who at Nintendo signed off on this???

I’m glad that we have fixing this in the plan.

That said, what the heck Nintendo? Wouldn’t that be one of the most important things for a mobile driving game?

I too would like landscape support. Do you have an ETA on the update?

If this topic gets moved to #roadmap, and the tag changes to “in-development”, then you know Wyze is working on it. :slight_smile:

No, I’m sorry. But I know it’s on the list.

The application, not the camera displays, should properly respect the physical orientation of the device. These are orientations such as inverted portrait or landscape. Presently this does not happen, most applications on iPad and Android devices do this, why is it that such aa simple thing is NOT done for your applications?

Maybe you can add the Wyze app to Fire tablets too?

Do you realize this it is relatively simple to add Google Play Store to many of the Fire Tablets, and then add the Wyze app?
It’s not supported but many of us do it, including some Forum mavens.
And if you want it “native” you might want to hop over to this #wishlist topic and vote:

OK thanks

Thanks for the tip, works great and nice way to get landscape on my Galaxy tablet!

I installed and opened the Wyze app on my iPad for the first time and was shocked, I thought I was transported five years into the past when most all apps opened on the iPad sideways (locked in portrait mode) surely I had an old version of the app. Deleted it and re-downloaded/installed; same results. That brought me here and then reading virtually the same response from Wyze every few months for the past year. This obviously will not be happening any time soon. Beyond disappointed.

Agree. Am really hoping that we eventually get landscape mode. Of the 75+ apps installed on my iPad, Wyze and Wemo are the only two that don’t support it. Must have something to do with the letter “W”.

Can we make this not only for tablet but also for Android TV and even on mobile that you can mirror on TV? I think it’s more convenient and more camera can be viewed simultaneously when laid out on landscape mode.

I would also recommend checking out this #wishlist topic. You can VOTE for it at the top-left. :slight_smile:

When I am in landscape mode on my tablet the wyze android app doesn’t respect the screen orientation until i select one of my 5 cameras and view its live feed.

Can you please change the android app to respect the screen orientation when it starts?

Thanks

I had these same issues on my old Samsung Tab 3. It is annoying.

A couple days ago, I bought a 2019 Tab A. The Tab A works better so I can at least watch the live stream as normal. Still acts odd in other Wyze options. The old Tab 3 is unusable with Wyze unless I lay down sideways.

It is very annoying that the Wyze software does not respect device orientation… there’s no reason for that… PLEASE Fix this finally – iOS.

What is the latest on this feature request? It seems to have been in the current “researching” status for a long enough time to spec out what it would take to implement. As most have commented, the Wyze app is one of a very few that does not work natively in landscape mode.
