Fix Bad Distorted Audio And Sound In Geanymotion

Geanymotion is a great product. As soon as I knew about this, I've been using this for my Android development. One problem bothering me was the audio and sound coming from Geanymotion was totally bad and distorted. Not only that any sound playing in my computer would get distorted for few seconds when sound was playing in Geanymotion.

Turns out Geanymotion was using Alsa instead of PulseAudio. To fix this:

  1. Open VirtualBox. Yes not Geanymotion.
  2. You'll see list of all the Android devices you've created from Geanymotion here.
  3. Click on the Android device you want to fix and click settings.
  4. Go to Audio tab in settings.
  5. In Host Audio Driver change from Alsa to PulseAudio.
  6. Press OK to close the settings.
  7. Repeat this process for all Android devices.
  8. Now run your Android device normally from Geanymotion and you should hear problem free perfect audio.
