Audio messages in Conversations app are distorted and play slowly

Hi sailfishers,

I am running Sailfish OS on a Sony Xperia 10 Plus and
the Conversations Instant Messanger app ( version 2.9.10.

Audio messages recorded on my Xperia are corrupt, as you can find out about Erasure’s “Always” song (this was recorded from my HiFi audio system, I could have recorded my own voice as well…)




  1. Running Conversations (same version) on a pure Android™ phone gives excellent results.
  2. Running Conversations version 2.9.1 (latest version is not compatible with Android 4.1) on my Jolla 1 phone (Sailfish Pallas-Yllästunturi) gives again excellent results.

This means that the problem seems to result from version 4 of Sailfish.

It would be great if any of you could please verify, thank you,

Same with Signal, deeply irritating, just popped up as an issue with 4.0.1

Currently recording with the Sailfish audio recorder app and adding to signal as a file.

Same problem here with audio playback on:

  • WhatsApp Calls (during the first 5 seconds)
  • Unplayer from Storeman (every couple of minutes for more than 5 seconds)
