James,
can you provide an update on the issues with Android 10 and the Amcrest View Pro app referred to in your post from October 2019 please. I have a Motorolla G7 Play Android phone currently running Android 9, but has a pending update to Android 10. I have the current Amcrest View Pro version 4.2.0.10 downloaded from the Google Play store now running successfully with my IP2M-841 cameras (after some effort with networking, router & firmware setups to cure 'Login Timed Out' and 'Connection Failed' issues) and do not want to mess this up in going to Android 10.

If there are any remaining issues/limitations with running Amcrest View Pro on Android 10 phones could you please list them.

Thanks

@AndrewH Hello and Welcome to the Forum

So I can't say about your phone or setup.. I can say that I am using the Samsung S9 Phone was on droid 9 and now is running 10 and things are going well with the App I have not had any issues outside the normal everyone once and a while missing camera to find out I have it on wrong View... Other then that it seems to work better then it did before the update to 10...

4.2.008
10/10/2019 build date for the Amcrest View Pro app...
Try to Avoid CCA Networking Cables They are JUNK PERIOD!

Upgrade to Android 10 on my phone completed and I can confirm everything appears to be working fine with Amcrest View Pro v 4.2.0.10.
