The WeChat app seems not to be compatible with Sailfish X, or its version of Alien Dalvik.

After installing the app via Aptoide, and attempting to make video calls, I've found that the microphone seems to be permanently muted within the app (with no way to unmute via settings). The recipient of the video call can be heard. The camera feed is also distorted very badly with visual anomalies. Please see attached screenshot. Both Skype and Slack also seem to have video and microphone issues respectively. I've had no such issues with similar apps such as Whatsapp, which must be better supported by both Sailfish X and its version of Alien Dalvik. Why is this?

Of course, this is rather frustrating when you can receive successfully audio clips from contacts, but not record any of your own. image description
