Hi Alyssa. I had tried this long ago. (Update 13.12). The error occurs in all possible options. Other german users also have this bug. The programming of the app is faulty. Thanks.

For example, everything very small.

Thank you for checking!

Could you tell me what device and model it is you’re using, please?

I’m not Hiltja but I can tell you that I observe the same problem using version 3.31.0 (1306) on a pixel 4a with Android 12, security update of 5 December 2021, build number SQ1A.211205.008.

Thanks and best regards

Das Problem hat nichts mit der Android-Version zu tun. Es liegt an der Übertragung, Übersetzung und Decodierung ins Deutsche. Um alle Zahlen, Statistiken und Werte zu sehen, könnte man die Compagnion App auf die englische Version umstellen. Einstellungen/System/Sprache/Sprachen und Eingabe/Sprache/Sprache hinzufügen. Dort fügt man English (Germany) hinzu und muss English wählen. Die gewählte Sprache steht dann oben, an erster Stelle. Die Apps werden in der englischen Version angezeigt und die Daten sind wieder lesbar. Nach der Ansicht schiebt man English wieder an die zweite Stelle und kehrt so zur deutschen Ansicht zurück. MfG Hiltja😪

Same problem on my device.

Xiaomi Mi 10T lite / Android / 6,6"

Only on German language, please fix it.

Hi from Austria, same issue with Xiaomi mi9, Miui global 12.5.1, Android 11

Same problem

Same here.

Workaround of @Hiltja_Schnell works for me.

Please fix.



I’m having the same problem since I changed the language to German. I saw the same bug on a friend’s phone.

Running Android 11, Companion version 3.31.1 (1311)

Best regards,

Edit: Font size and display size are both set to “Standard”

The same problem here and all friends with the Companion APP! Please fix the problem dear developers and maintainers of this wonderful APP.
It is not a solution to change the system language to be able to read the values.

Please please fix

Hi All,

same here.
Android 12 / Samsung Galaxy S20FE.
But I have again taken the version from November (3.29.0)

on my Galaxy Tab S6 i have no problems.
But is also more space on the screen.

Best Regards,

German Companion App version 3.32.1 (1323) has still unreadable numbers in the activity diagrams.
Why is Zwift not able to correct it?

Sam here, latest version, german localization, Pixel 6, Android 12. Nothing changed in display / scaling settings.
Very annoying…

Yes, please fix the problem. Thanks

Can you provide us with some News regarding this Bug? I now have these problems since December. In the meantime there hase been an Companion Update that did not fix the issue. I know development takes time but this worked before december, so I guess this can’t be to hard to fix. It is really annoying to me on all my devices.

Hi, sorry for not getting back to you. It’s with our development team but I’m afraid I don’t have any timescales for the fix.

Since this bug seems specific to the German language version of Companion in Android and isn’t looking to be a short-term fix, might it be a good idea to modify this thread’s title to help new people coming up against this issue to find this discussion rather than start new threads? (I’ve seen more than a couple over the last few weeks before being redirected here.)
