Like other video chatting apps, Google Meet is also upping its game. Recently, it has released a new AI-powered background noise cancellation feature. It has already made the announcement about this feature back in April for its G Suite Enterprise and G Suite Enterprise for Education customers. It is being reported that first, the feature will be available for web and then iOS and later Andriod.
VentureBeat has released a video of this feature which demonstrates a seamless removal of the background sound. Hence, you don’t hear anything crackling, clicking, or glass clinking. Furthermore, the company is working on removing sounds like the barking of dogs and clicking of keyboards.
Reports have emerged, suggesting that Google has been working on this feature for approximately two years. It has utilized its own meetings to train the Artificial Intelligence model. A lot of people who’ve already used the website are giving bright reviews on YouTube. Lachapelle has promised that the app will improve over time and continue to evolve with the times and changing needs. The company is doing everything in its power to make this app a great experience for its users.
Google shows immense gratitude and ambition as it is now using Artificial Intelligence to reduce background noise during calls. However, this move isn’t restricted to Google, as many companies have followed suit.
The new feature is currently at default, so according to Lachapelle, it will not give participants during the call any visual interface clean. You can benefit from this new feature by changing the settings in the audio menu in Google Meet’s settings. The company aims to do better with every passing day.
