Picture-in-Picture (PiP) Feature

It shouldn’t be too difficult to develop - as some competitors with overall less features than WYZE- in fact have this availability.

Really looking forward to this.

When I want to do that, (Android) I swipe up from the bottom of the screen, drag the Wyze app to the top until it “sticks” to the top half of the screen, then tap the app that I want to see on the bottom of the screen.

Many thanks-

Swiping from the bottom does not move the camera viewing window for me on the Galaxy s10+ ( nothing happens with swipe up)
Are you stating that you are able to view a camera - while at the same time read and write emails etc?

Android split screen mode.

Many thanks.

What we are looking for is a pip thumbnail that can be viewed and moved anywhere on the screen.

Lesser developed cam companies have this for a while already. (even tinycam has pip though only for one camera at a time)

Really hoping wyze will complete this for all of us…

HINT: Android allows only 1 PiP window. However in tinyCam you can use floating windows feature and have 4 PiPs at the same time. In tinyCam app go to Settings - Developer Settings and change ‘Floating windws & PiP’ to ‘Floating windows’. You should allow tinyCam app drawing on top of other apps then.

We were able to view the 4 cameras as pip in tiny cam. however- we had to do it 4 times to effect it, once for each camera.

Is there a way to effect all 4 with one action rather than 4 actions?

Additionally- if Wyze would have the pip availability- all 4 cameras ( as displayed simultaneously on the screen currently ) would ALL be view-able simultaneously in the pip mode.

Kindly continue to revert back with suggestions options.

Many thanks

You can do that via Tasker (Android app for home automation). tinyCam has Tasker plugin and allows opening floating windows there as well. You can create a task which opens 4 cameras as floating windows at the same time.

Many thanks

How do we add sound to the floaters?

as of now there is no sound.

Enable ‘Background audio’ in app drawer. Not sure if it works with floating windows though.

Many thanks-

Where may I locate that- please?

See the bottom of app drawer.

Many thanks

That was already selected on and no sound when in floating mode. ( sound shuts off, comes on for 2 seconds, and then shuts off )

What else can you suggest?

Good evening

Kindly advise when you have a moment as we would like sound when in floating mode.

No way to fix that. No audio in floating windows at the moment.

It looks like it should be fixed in tinyCam 13.1.6.

Pip on ios would be amazing as would a catalyst app on Mac

The ability to have a mini floating camera viewer to multitask would be nice.

This would be very beneficial for my wife while she does homework. She could still see me while working away. Great idea!

We are using one of our wyze cameras as a replacement for a baby sleep monitor. I would like to see an ability to soft close the wyze app that results in a small video overlay on Android devices. This would function similar to how YouTube, Netflix and YouTube tv function on an Android device. This would allow me to continue browsing on my phone while keeping the video stream up.
