According to the FAQ
Is PipeWire ready yet?
It is getting ready for broader testing.
Upstream says it is not ready!
Linux has had a large number of audio systems (OSS, ALSA, ESD,
pulseaudio, and probably some I’ve forgotten), and almost as many
painful transitions from one to the next. Since then audio has become
a vital part of the computer desktop experience. Please make this
less painful and don’t make this the default until it is ready and
The upstream developer of PipeWire is the one who submitted this
Change proposal. Before this proposal was submitted, he talked to us
in the Workstation WG about it and stated that he's confident that
PipeWire is in good shape for Fedora 34 and provides a straightforward
way to fall back to legacy PulseAudio as needed.
