What was not tested

Video calls were not tested because it would not recognize the built in video camera.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

If it would pickup the video camera it would get a gold rating. 

When typing in Korean (Hangul) a character must be completed before it will display. Makes editing hard.

Apart from video calls it works as well as my Android version.

Fixed in Wine 7.2; if enough people consider this fix as critical, we can propose backporting to stable Wine 7.0.x.
