Swipe between screens in portrait and full-screen (e.g., swipe to switch cameras, back navigation)

Swipe to switch cameras

I’m very surprised this isn’t a feature. When in either landscape or portrait mode, I should be able to swipe left/right on my device and go to the next camera. Right now, you have to tap ‘back’ then tap new camera, then rotate device again to get landscape view. Such a pain. Make it easy. Just give us swipe abilities.

I requested this a few years ago. They don’t want to do it.

Can we please have the ability to swipe from cam to cam in the app (like an Instagram or Snapchat story). It’s very clunky to have to go back and then hit on the next cam. I have 11 cams. I want to check them all quickly. There also needs to be a thumbnail grid page that shows them all, rather than in a boring long list.


How do I vote for this?

Scroll up to the first post and vote using the button in the upper left

IOS Swipe from left side of screen to go back.

Most apps on IOS allow you to swipe from the left side of the screen to the right in order to go back. This is very convenient, rather than hitting the back arrow. This would be great if it could be added to the app!

Swipe to go back on iOS

I would like to PLEASE ask the team to consider support for “swipe to go back” on the iOS app. This gesture is standard across almost all Apple apps (probably because back button is very difficult to reach the back arrow for most users). Wyze is the only app I regularly use that doesn’t offer this gesture — I’m not sure why Wyze doesn’t use this when the vast, vast majority of iOS apps do. It is only a few lines of code to implement.

Here are some reddit/wyze threads of others who are wishing for the same:

And here is generic example of the code to implement in the source code:

self.navigationController.interactivePopGestureRecognizer.delegate = self;
//and then implement
extension MyViewController:UIGestureRecognizerDelegate {
func gestureRecognizer(_ gestureRecognizer: UIGestureRecognizer, shouldBeRequiredToFailBy otherGestureRecognizer: UIGestureRecognizer) → Bool {
return true

It really doesn’t take much effort. But it will significantly improve the lives of almost alll iOS users.

Thanks very much for your consideration. And have a good day :slight_smile:

This is probably my most request feature from the IOS app.

I desperately need the back swipe gesture.

It’s driving me insane having to do finger gymnastics every time to reach that back arrow button to go back to the previous screen.

Using the Wyze app 24/7 and adding more devices means I use the app more and more every day .

It’s absolutely annoying and frustrating that this simple back swipe gesture isn’t enable in the IOS Wyze app… that’s how important it is to me

3 years later and it’s tagged as “maybe-later”

I think this will only be achievable once the new Wyze app update comes…

Any help here as to why this hasn’t been enabled.

Please and thank you

I feel and share your pain. :pensive: Mods and Mavens can’t answer your questions as we don’t have insight to Wyze’s task prioritization, scheduling and reasoning behind either.

Understandable but maybe one of you could poke the bear and ask the question…? Thanks :slight_smile:

If they choose to share that type of info, they’ll do it publicly here in a forum wishlist topic. :+1:

If I had to venture a guess, I would say that this is something that will not be considered until app version 3 which is in the planning stages. That’s only a guess, not based on any specific knowledge. Unfortunately, we don’t know any more but the timing of app v3 other than that is is being planned.


Smart visions new pages do this :eyes:

Swipe Between Cameras

Would be great to be able to swipe between cameras while in live camera view.


Swipe through Camera images

In the app allow for the ability to swipe through all camera images without needing to exit each camera view.

In WYZE app, the Back button “<” at top left corner of Camera view is too small to tap. Please follow iOS user behavior to add support of swip to right to exit to Home page.


Slide left to right for cameras…

Both my Amazon Cloud Cams and the Eufy Cams I was considering along with Wyze as their replacements had/have the ability to slide your finger across the screen to move between live view cameras.

It’s something I am reminded of how convenient it was, every time I have to back out of a camera into the Wyze list. Please consider implementing this.

Feels like this feature request is getting ignored :frowning:

One of the reasons I switched to Android was for the back swipe gesture, if wyze can add dark mode then I’m sure they can add a back swipe gesture.

C’mon wyze !

Hi folks,
The ability to easily cycle through the single camera views by swiping left and right is an absolutely basic/ must-have user experience functionality.
Swipe on the camera video/photo itself.

Swiping right outside of the camera video/image must continue to get the user back to the previous screen, with the camera list.
This sort of navigation is absolutely basic and a very surprising miss for this stage of development.

What’s the hold up? I see that your competitors have this functionality and the functionality has been requested for a long time. Come on Wyze…
Looking fwd to getting such functionality. Thank you

The Maybe Later status is very nearly Probably Not, imo. Third party Android app tinyCam (free or pro $5) provides this functionality and many others worth checking out.
