Wyze app 2.41 is releasing soon! We finally have a Wyze-specific notification tone so we won’t blend into general notifications. We also added snooze for notifications, can show the same SSID for combined bands, and improved UX.
I’m not a fan of how the new notification sound over rides the selected tone on my Samsung GS10. I had separate tones for the Wyze notification, which were different from all other notification sounds. Now the Wyze app seems to play the new sound and not the sound that I have selected (under phone settings). Give us the choice to use the new sound OR the phone’s notification sound.
@WyzeJasonJ I am glad this was released. Now I have turned off MacroDriod, where I had specific notifications for person, pet, and vehicle detection sounds. For example, when a person is detected, Macdriod will trigger, and my custom mp3 would say Person Detected on the front door.
I have a Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro; where in the app information do I manually change these settings? Or is this located in the rules? I tried searching, but I could not find it. My app is on version 18.104.22.168 as of this morning. I also cleared my cache, signed out, and signed back in with no luck. I tried following the below steps that I found in the forums and I cannot find it.
To those asking about the notification sound, there is not a way in the Wyze app to change it. We had many complaints that users could not differentiate the sound due to it being the same as every other app. There are two ways to deal with this, change the sound for the app or build a way in the app for users to control the sound. One is easy and one involves a lot more work. We chose to make the sound different and are still looking into ways to achieve the other one.
Android users may be able to change sounds in the Android settings for the app itself, iOS users will not be able to do this.
Making this default notification is a horrible idea. If it is the tone/sound that is in the beta app, it is terrible, long and extremely annoying… I don’t get to use notifications anymore because of the notifications choice/lock down. I love the Camz and would hate to have to change brand all over a stupid notification tone…
The sound before was whatever phone default was. We just changed the Wyze default. If you were able to change it before you should still be able to. That being said we do hear the feedback and are looking into options to fix this since many are not liking it.
The new ringtone is a complete disaster. I have an Android (Pixel 7 Pro) and I can’t change back to the tone I had before. The Wyze app won’t allow a change. Please fix this ASAP. This seems to be something that was solved that had no problem.
I will assume by your last post that you are an iOS user.
Some time ago, iOS removed the ability for users to modify app notification tones. As such, there isn’t any way for you to change it unless there is a way for an iOS user to remove the app and install a prior version. This can be done on Android but I don’t use iOS so I can’t tell you if it is possible or not.
