Hi all,

I don't know if it's a bug and if, if it's jolla or wire related. But If somebody sending me pictures I can only see the frame of the picture but not the picture itself. Is somebody usin this messenger and experiences similar problems? whatsapp and signal are working fine. Or any idea how to debug?

Same problem here, no pictures are visible. No background, no profile-pictures. Video-Calls are working. Wire version 3.0.366 downloaded from here: Sailfish OS on Xperia X.

Edit: after some testing I noticed that pictures send by myself are visible. I reported this also to wire-support, maybe they can help.

I have the same Problem... the App (3.2.373) is running fine. I also can send Pictures but the Pictures I receive are not displayed or can not be saved (unable to save file). Any ideas/Solutions for this bug?

I haved issue with both versions: 3.2.373 and 2.37.349

Yes, I have noticed this too. It would be great to have a native SFOS version (and this has been suggested somewhere or other), but I don't know who would develop it. AFAICS most of the SFOS crowd seem to be using Telegram

well - since wire seems to have quite some funding (it reads like rhat) i meant wire team themselves should offer a sailfish build. they do the same for all the other versions, dont they? at least on github it looks like almost all commitments are done by peiple involved/working for wire. so basically i just meant if anyone asked for a sailfish version on github or so - so we can all say "yes please" on there, or wherever users can get on developers nerves with feature wishes ;)
