Just voted for this feature! I bought a sweet Wyze webcam for my 80±year-old parents who only have Amazon Alexa devices and an Amazon Kindle to run them. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make a Kindle app!
We split the #roadmap category into #wishlist and #roadmap a while back so better differentiate requests that are actively being developed vs just possibilities. I think that’s what you noticed. You can read more about the categories here:
I can say “Alexa, ask wyze to show dining room camera” and it displays on my Echo Show 5. So I am wondering if your have the Fire Tablet 8 or 10 and use the Echo Display stands, if it will work there as well. Should basically be an Echo Show with an 8 or 10 inch display at that point.
This is an example of the case:
Now if I could only tell Alexa to show a Wyze Camera Group then I would be good to go.
Another vote for the Amazon/Kindle app store support! Purchased a kindle for dedicated support for the camera to use as intercom.
You guys are amazing though. Rave about you all the time.
Amazing. Thanks for this.
Yes this needs to be on the kindle amazon store. Im using the wyze cameras as a baby monitor and the 10 minute timeout on my echo show or fire tv is terrible. Would like to leave an app running on my Fire 7 tablet on my Nightstand instead of leaving my phone running the app all night long.
What is the status on this? Crazy cheap amazon tablets for Black Friday. I would like to use as a baby monitor and keep the app on at all times. Wyze any updates?
I don’t see it mentioned here, but the WyzeCam app works fine on any recent Fire tablet that has support for the Google Play store added. I have it open on my 9th gen (2019) Fire 7 as I type this.
If anyone wants to go this route, these are a good set of instructions for doing so:
These are a slight improvement on the instructions I’ve used on several Fire tablets, as they include the tip about disabling auto-updates for apps that exist in both the Amazon Appstore and the Google Play store (such as the Alexa app).
If the WyzeCam app doesn’t use any Google services, it should also work if sideloaded alone (although then updates are something of a problem).
What’s the status here? Not everybody wants to mess with G store.
It is marked as “Maybe-Later.” This means they are not pursuing this wish at this time.
You can install the Google play store by following the instructions on this website https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.howtogeek.com/232726/how-to-install-the-google-play-store-on-your-amazon-fire-tablet/amp/
Once it is installed you can simply download the wyze cam app and run it. I have done minor testing on my device and it has been working great.
I have loaded Play Store and the Wyze app but get a 20 second delay as well as it frequently returning to the Home screen and not staying on the video screen. (Pulling the same feed up on an Android phone at the same time results in no delay at all yet 20 second delay with the Fire tablets)
I have multiple Fire tablets as dashboards in my home and so far its not working out too well… I too hope for a native Amazon App to get better support/bug fixes…
So here we are almost 18 months after my first post. Looks to me like there is significant interest in this. And that’s not counting people who are interested but don’t post. How about a beta version at least? You could pair a Wyze Cam with a $30 black Friday Fire tablet on Amazon.
YES PLEASE! Really waiting for a native Amazon app for this camera. Thanks.
How about Wyze do it for free, as a gesture of goodwill for exposing our personal data on the Internet.
Yes, please add the app to the Amazon App store.
Mine kindle is main computer now.
you can add google play store on Kindle h8 and 10. Then you get to use the android apps.
But I try fire stick and it can’t.
Consider using the tinCAM Monitor PRO app, available today in the amazon app store, for both firestick and firetablet platforms. This app supports showing you live stream from all your wyze cameras.
Personally, this is great when wanting to use a fire tablet as a live-stream-screen showing one or multiple wyze cameras. Additionally, I think the experience is even better for this on the firestick app (shows multiple cameras at once, can scroll through each cam after X sec., can use remote to switch between cameras with ease). Its a powerful app, worth the few $ to buy it.
Because Window Phone is 100% for right now for Microsoft so I got a unbrand android phone.
I as ways want a Star Trek tablet and got it in the kindle HD8. The Kindle is base on Andoid but Amazon lock it up. But there is a way to unlock it and putting on Play store. I can use the Wyze app and Nest app on the kindle like mine phone. I got Google Voice where I can make phone calls if needed. Pay bills on it. Can watch cable tv fast then turning on the tv. The only thing about the tv it a 36" bigger then mine Kindle. Kindle is faster then tv booting up and the remote only good for movie.
Down the road I will get a blue Kindle and put a pin lock. Just this one kindle is for pay bills only. If I added a 4k camera it has it own app too.
The only thing about tinCAM Monitor PRO I saw on Youtube is watch many camera at the same time. The problem with that the data plan I have on the phone.
I am looking in to a Blue Iris where a computer record all the time.
I would love to see the app on Amazon so I could view on my fire 10 he thanks
