Google pushed out the May 2020 update to Pixel phones this week. Immediately following installation, I have a perpetual notification stating “WyzeBeta is running, Tap for more information or to stop the app.”
I am unable to dismiss the notification and a solid circle stays in the notification bar.
I also have the may update, the persistent notification is due to the Wyze app, not the may update. You can temporarily get rid of it by long pressing the app, then app info, notifications, then turn off “downchannelservice” then turn it back on
I started seeing this today on my Moto Z3 Play with android app 2.10.36, and on my wife’s Moto X4 with 2.10.72 Wyze android App. If you long press it, you can minimize it.
Neither of our phones are running beta versions, so it just says:
“Wyze is running Tap for more information or to stop the app”.
Is this a bug or a feature?
You can also force close it, but I doubt that is the right thing to do.
