What have you done? It used to work perfectly. I remember when I could just download this on my phone and Wear OS device then I could just broadcast my phone camera to my watch with the screen on or off and no notification on the phone would show up (creepy but cool). Now, a black square appears in the bottom-right side of my phone screen and if I'm lucky enough to receive an feed from my phone's camera that isn't frozen, I can't change camera. Just revert this back to an early-2019 version.

EDIT: App used to work perfectly but since the update is of no use. Insists on overlay authorisation puting a black square in the corner of my phone even when the app isn't 'loaded'. I have to restart my phone to get rid of it. As for actually functioning - unfortunately it no longer talks to my phone properly and only accesses the selfie camera. All the developers do when users point out the errors in the update is try and send you to a web link. Please mend, rewind or refund this app ASAP.

Hi, despite all the rave a about this app, it didn't work or connect my ticwatch pro to huwaei mate 20 pro phone. The one star has more to do with not receiving a reply when I emailed the developer asking for support. Is there a fix for this issue or am I just going to accept that I've wasted money for something that doesn't work. Michael

What's new

This is a complete rewrite to meet the latest Android security constraints.
Priority has been given to reliability so for the moment the choice of resolutions for taking photos and videos are no longer accessible.
The choice of resolutions is determined by your device and represents the best compromise.
