Google Meet brings Noise Cancellation to Android And iOS

Google Meet can now intelligently filter out background noise on Android and iOS.

Last updated:

Google Meet, Google’s premium video-conferencing solution, now has a new noise cancellation feature that will let you filter out disruptive background noise on Android and iOS. The new feature is available to G Suite Enterprise and G Suite Enterprise for Education customers on web, Android and iOS.

To help to limit distractions in your video call, you can filter out background noise. Meet can remove background noises such as typing, closing a door or the sounds of a nearby construction site.

  • Audio capture from screen sharing won’t be affected by noise cancelling.
  • Meet filters out noises that don’t sound like voices. Voices from TV or people talking at the same time won’t be filtered out.
  • If non-speech is an important part of your call, like playing musical instruments, turn off noise cancellation.
