Android beta app for Wyze Cam Outdoor Firmware test 10/22/2020

Android app version:


This app is for WCO beta firmware 4.17.0. 181 & base station 4.16.0. 183 test. If you ARE NOT a WCO user or already updated the firmware, you don’t have to upgrade this app.


Is the apk available for download somewhere?

App store currently showing 2.14.35

I confirm the same.

Play store shows 2.14.35 but it let me update (I previously had 2.14.35)

In app shows 2.14.36 and WCO firmware is updating now.

Its worth noting that WCO still doesnt show up on the person detection services page with this update.

Got the new beta update and the WCO showed back up under cam plus services but they are greyed out like they don’t have an active subscription and person detection on the WCO is not working.

I’ve updated the WyzeBeta app this morning to the new version. Updated the firmware on the base station without issue, but I’ve never had an issue with that. Then failed to update the WCO firmware. Powered it down, removed the MicroSD card, powered it back up. Still failed to update firmware. I’ve also tried leaving it powered off for a long time before powering back up and trying to update firmware again. No go.

The Play Store is now showing the new version.

I had already updated my WCO and the Base a few days ago.

Someone mentioned Person Detection, which is only available on WCO if Cam Plus is subscribed too

Are you still not able to update to the WCO beta firmware?


I am still unable to update my WCO firmware. Here is a video of it failing, and showing the firmware versions of the WCO and the base station, as well as the app version.

Thanks for the video! Can you send me an app log and let me know the log ID number?
An alternative way is to flash the camera with an SD card. Once we take a look at your log, I’ll send you the instructions.

So I just received 2 WCO cameras that I pre-ordered and I have updated the cameras and base station to the current versions with no issue. I was looking to add the person detection that is being tested but it does not seem to be available to add under services. I can see the cams in the list but they are greyed out. Not even a free 14 day free trial like indoor cameras?

Log submitted, 53067 is the ticket number it provided.

How about a dark mode beta??? Please!!! Soooo many people want this!

Please make a dark mode for the app!!! I have my phone facing me every night to watch my 1yo on the camera. It is a real pain when I already have blue light off and the brightness all the way down. Still bright in my dark bedroom when I’m trying to sleep.

On Android 10 and up you can force dark mode in the developer options.

Does this change every app to dark mode? Also I don’t see it in developer options on my Galaxy Note 10+. Is there a trick to make this option appear?


The option is available under the “Hardware Accelerated Renedering” section in the developer options on the Note 10 +

It will also change other apps to dark mode.
