The Wyze app we use is actually a phone app, and is not optimized for tablets. Some screens will allow you to rotate them to landscape, but not all. Even the ones that allow rotation often start out in portrait mode until you physically rotate the tablet to portrait and back again.
You can vote for a proper landscape optimization here. Looks like they plan to do it:
What I saw on your video link is new to me, though. Looked like when you rotated it it was always in the opposite mode?
I wholeheartedly agree that it’s not how it should work on a tablet. I’d submit a ticket, but I’m pretty sure it’s already been identified as I read it here somewhere and I think it’s a Wishlist item. Will check this functionality on a Samsung Tab tomorrow.
Side note that this is why I prefer iOS to Android’s fragmented market. Haha. There are too many niche issues that are specific to devices, which is understandable since no company can reasonably test 1000 different devices to discover every minor issue specific to a single device
I don’t fully understand the difference between a large phone and a tablet as far as rotation is handled. The app rotates and works fine on my phone and my wife’s. It also, I believe, works fine on my Amazon Fire HD 10.
That being said I recently purchased a Onn 10.1 Tablet (Walmart), which behaves incorrectly when rotated. It rotates when you rotate the tablet, but it has the orientation wrong. This may be a problem with Android 10? I’ve noticed one other application I have is confused as well. I’ve also noticed that a number of applications are not available yet for the tablet, when they work fine on the Amazon HD, or the older Samsung tablet we have.
Either way, it’s certainly not fixed and it seems like it could be due to changes in Android 9 or 10? At least other people are having similar problems so I don’t think it’s this specific tablet (which works fine for all but two apps).
The same happens on two of my tablets. I’m used to it now. Although the initial menu comes up incorrectly, the video reverts to landscape viewing and is okay till I go to any menu. Unfortunately, getting used to it is no solution.
