I do not like the beta version

How do I opt out of the beta version. I am very unhappy with it.

Account, about, beta program, leave beta…or some similar thing.
Wait a couple days, then uninstall app. Reinstall from app store to the non beta version.

Are you on iOS or Android?

Profile says Android.

Yeah, if they were iOS, there would be no reason to ask how to unenroll from Beta, it’s a separate system (Testflight), and you can run both Beta and production at the same time, so the easy solution for iOS is to just delete the testflight beta and the production is still there.

On Android you have to unenroll and are stuck with either just Beta or just production through Google Play.

Thank you! I did not know that about iOS. I’ve been on android for almost a decade now so I know very little about the current version of iOS. It would definitely be nice to have both versions available on Android for comparison that it seems iOS has.

Summary

@ssummerlin Thank you, I will make note to check profiles for that type of info in the future

Me too. I only know a little about iOS because a year or 2 ago I bought an old iPhone from a friend solely so I could use it to help people on this forum. I pretty much never use it and sits on my office desk, turned off, until someone on here says they’re having an issue with the app on iOS and I need to try to confirm it or help walk them through what to do. :slight_smile: Other than that, I use Android basically exclusively. :slight_smile: But that’s the only reason I know a little bit about iOS. I’d never even touched an iPhone before that. :joy: I only do so to help people on here a little better now.

I was sadly forced to quit the beta for this version as all my camera stopped connecting:(

That’s not correct. On iOS if you download the production version it will replace the beta one and vice versa. You can’t run both, ask me how I know :wink:

Really? I swear I had both. But I admit I am a total iOS n00b.

At least you can tell by whether it’s in test flight or not, and as you said I guess if you installed the production it automatically removes the beta.

Shows how much I know about iOS I guess. Lol

Thanks for The clarification

At least you try. I won’t even think of using an iPhone. :grinning:

I had to “leave beta” while viewing the app in the play store . Then uninstall and reinstall.

@peepeep , have you done a poll on whether beta testers like the new, upcoming UI?

This app needs a ton of help. I have to go back out of the beta app now.

Going back was the best thing. Sorry but the beta app should be an alpha. It is extremely irritating. Now everything works fine again.

I agree.
I used to be extremely happy to help with the beta apps and firmware, and used all beta in my setup to truly test everything in my daily real world situations. But lately I have held back because of so many issues that didn’t seem to have been tested by anyone that actually knows what the devices and apps are supposed to do. It feels like even less than alpha testing, it seems like the coder makes a change to the code, then tries it out to see if it works, except they skip the trying out part, and just have us try it for them while they go on to the next task on their list.

I have another phone and a tablet, and tried it on those, then after all the problems, I went ahead and dropped out of the beta program on my main phone to stop having to choose not to update from the Play Store.

That is correct. If you are using the beta, the name under the app icon says “WyzeBeta” and if you are using production it only says “Wyze”.

As much as I love Apple, it won’t let you run two instances of the same app. Wish it did.

Also, what was Wyze thinking when they redesigned the app icon :scream:

Common now, you are just hurting my feeling :rofl:

You are totally right. First, Wyze should’ve fixed all the issues with the old app before jumping on a bandwagon and releasing a new app that honestly feels like a bloatware. They haven’t done anything new, just adding to the old buggy software…

No. It feels like the coder steps out to go the washroom and someone else takes over while he/she is in a washroom, then walks away just before the original coder comes back to the station. It’s like one hand doesn’t know what the other does.

Leaving the beta is done on Android by going to Apps> Wyze > view in Play Store > Leave beta. Then Clear Cache > Clear Data > Uninstall.

Then impatiently wait for a while because if you reinstall right away the Play Store will keep giving you the Beta for a while.

How long that ‘while’ is… don’t know yet. :frowning:
