Yay, everything is working and now I can use my voice to see my camera!

But, I noticed some problems with the implementation 🙁

Let's talk about them...

Problems with Wyze Cam and Chromecast

As soon as I asked Google to stream my Wyze Cam to TV I notice the problem.

It took a long time to start streaming... around 40 seconds, and that's a lot.

I also noticed some delay in the video, usually more than 15 seconds 🙁

So, I got it working but it's not as good as the Alexa working with Wyze Cam.

It takes about 30 to 40 seconds to load the video from the Wyze Cam on the TV.

Perhaps because my Chromecast is a little bit old (about 3 years or so).

I tried to update the firmware but it didn't work.

I'm also using the last firmware on the Wyze Cam, so the problem is not there.

Conclusion

Yes, I have my Wyze Cam ready to communicate with the Google Assistant but to be honest I'm not that happy with the implementation.

It's an alternative to Alexa but it could be annoying because the video stream is sluggish and freezes a lot. Not good 🙁

Well, perhaps it cold work better for you depending on your devices,

Anyway, now you know how to cast wyze cam to chromecast.

Good luck and please share this article.
