My built in internal mic on laptop Lenovo Ideapad 320 works fine while using Windows. But when I try to use it in Ubuntu, its performance is somewhat between Properly working and Not working. The microphone records my voice but when I hear my recordings, more that half of the sound is consists of noise which almost makes my voice unclear.

When I use my earphones mic instead of the internal mic, it works totally fine.

When I use a Citrix remote desktop app, it does not detect any mic, while Windows does this fine again.
