Wyze App Runs in Background After Closing App

I noticed today that after I closed the Wyze app, and cleared it from my app switcher/running apps, the sound from the video was still playing over my car’s Bluetooth. I had to force stop the app to get it to stop.

I’m running Android 11, pixel 3, Wyze beta app.

It makes me wonder if this is possibly why some outdoor cameras are experiencing battery drain? If the app sound is still playing in the background, then the camera is still obviously awake.

Closing the app and removing it from the running app switcher should stop all video feeds. It should not require a force stop.

This is something that Wyze Support is better equipped and has the tools to investigate.
