I was only able to see this in the Wyze App. I could only find the WyzeBulb description page on the site.
Short Version: 4 bulbs $29.99 + $7.99 shipping (and possibly tax)

Sharing this as more FYI for those that might be interested.

They are currently doing the pre-order for the WyzeBulb. Its a 4 pack for $29.99. From the video it is all controlled through the Wyze app, no hub required, can connect to Alexa, Google Home and IFTTT. It can be setup to work with the Wyze Sense and setup in groups for same on/off and color settings.

Specs:
Color White
800 Lumens
60w equivalent
9.5 watt rater power
2.4GHz 802.11 b/g/n support
2700k-6500k Color Temp Range
20,000 hour life expectancy
Indoor use only

Wyze bulb description page [wyze.com]

I do like my WyzeCams and have had good luck with their support when needed. I don't have the Sense, but am considering it (missed the pre-order). The bulb is an easy choice for me.

Shipping per for 1, 2, or 3, 4 packs (for me anyway):
1 $7.99
2 $10.51
3 $12.49

For me 2 4 packs was just shy of $75 (with tax and shipping ~$9.40/bulb). It beats recent TP-Link bulb pricing and I like Wyze so I'll support them, but I know this isn't support the companies you like dot com, so I'll leave it to you to decide if it's slick.
When they go on sale later this year they will run $7.99 each (possibly a 4 pack for $29.99, I don't know)

I don't know if you have to have any products registered or if this is only select people. I know the Sense package was US only, I don't know if this is the same. As of posting this there are 13 days left of pre-order, they are at 28% sold, and it ships in June (18 June for me).

I can't use these since in my home we have mostly recessed lighting. Curious to how these turn out though!

I haven't seen anything confirming this, but I hope they can be configured to automatically tune the light to the time of day, mimicking F.lux functionality.

Also, if Wyze releases a remote (for control from a couch or bed) I'm all in. Unlocking a phone and waiting for an app to load and connect is too much hassle for something like a lightbulb.

maybe Wyze should focus on making an outdoor camera (for real moisture protection) before making yet another silly WiFi bulb... really no need for this on the market.

I've had 4 of the existing Wyzecams mounted outdoors (even through sub-zero days this past winter) for over a year with zero issues. Even if they released an outdoor version, I don't think I would pay extra for it.

i have 7 outside, under overhangs, in chicken coops and runs, even one on a barn in an in-use electrical box i modified... but i've broken 2 in my duck run, there's just too much moisture and the temperature changes to freezing break them instantly.
i'd pay for an external of a few for those types of uses.

Thats what you use google home/Alexa for.

I saw this last night, didn't seem slick to me, just a preorder. They're not even on sale. FWIW, if I pay ten bucks for one light bulb, it's going to be full color, not just shades of white.

i agree about the outdoor camera, it's been in their pipeline since November 2018 but they don't provide any updates [wyzecam.com]

I currently have the Wemo plug with a light connected on a schedule. When I got my Wyze Sense Motion detector, I linked the two with IFTTT. Now when the motion is activated, my light will turn on. Pretty cool, so I may pass on the $10 bulb for now.

Fwiw in the video they show someone that setup their bulbs to turn on when they walk down the basement stairs and all of the bulbs are in recessed cans in a drop ceiling. I don't know safety ramifications of it, but it's on their promo video

i'm sure the same as every other WiFi bulb out there... they're probably rebranded, just like their cameras, maybe with some infrastructure/FW changes.
nothing special here, including the price, nowadays ~10$/bulb isn't a good price for WiFi stuff.

It's been prototyped and is in localized testing. Bulbs are faster to make than testing moisture advoidence devices.

You should watch their YouTube channel, it talks about all the items in development and time lines.
