Newer Wyze Cam v3 hardware with latest firmware 220.127.116.1179 do not work with Alexa Live View.
it appears that the latest batch of v3 cameras update to a higher firmware version (18.104.22.16879 ) than my slightly older v3 cams purchased 1 year ago (which only update to a maximum firmware version of 22.214.171.12454). All 4 of my recently purchased V3 cams update to a higher firmware version 126.96.36.19979 and do not work with Alexa Live View (which means you cannot stream video to any Alexa smart devices).
Something happened between firmware v 188.8.131.5254 and latest 184.108.40.20679 firmware that broke Alexa live view on the latest V3 Camera hardware (I ordered 4 new cameras in May, 2023)
I have updated my Amazon review of the newest Wyze V3 Cameras to inform everyone that the latest camera hardware and firmware do not work with Alexa live view. Se below for more details on my troubleshooting results :

Alexa live view is unavailable in the Alexa app for all newer v3 cams that are updated to latest 220.127.116.1179 firmware. (I am using Alexa app on Samsung Galaxy S20+ phone and Alexa on Firestick 4K)
My Older v3 cams that will only update to a maximum firmware version of 18.104.22.16854 all work fine with Alexa and live view. I have recently purchased 4 new v3 cams and none of them worked with Alexa live view, while all of my older v1 and v3 cameras do work.
it appears that the latest batch of v3 cameras update to a higher firmware version than the older v3 cams and the latest 22.214.171.12479 firmware and latest v3 cam hardware do not work with Alexa.
I have tried all troubleshooting steps from Wyze in the multiple trouble tickets I opened with Wyze support, and all tickets have been closed with no resolution.
Something happened between firmware v 126.96.36.19954 and latest 188.8.131.5279 firmware that broke Alexa live view.
I am posting an Amazon review detailing the problem with my last 4 purchased V3 cameras and recommending that everyone avoid purchasing the latest v3 cameras until the Alexa live view issue is fixed by Wyze.
