Skype is (so far) the only Android app that can use the microphone on my Jolla.

The following apps report either that they didn't find a microphone or that they can't access it:

  • Shazam
  • SoundHound
  • Easy Voice Recorder

Android apps are already allowed to use the microphone ... I have already used shazam to discover Music.

Did you update to last SailfishOS release and last Android Support Version ?

I have also successfully used SoundHound.

Yes, SailfishOs version is . Android support app is in the "up-to-date" list (don't know how I can see the actual version).

Strange, suddenly Shazam started working on my Jolla as well. I don't know what fixed it. Anyway, I'll close this question.
