Google Meet’s noise cancellation feature is now available on phones


Not every time you have the facility of holding a laptop in case of an urgent meeting. Sometimes we need to attend these meetings using our mobile phones. On the desktop, we can enjoy more privileges in comparison to our mobiles. Desktop computers contain noise cancellation features that make it quite easier to focus during meetings. Google is planning to make this feature available on your mobiles too.

We are getting updates from time to time in Google Meet and its other applications. The latest feature before this one was a 360-degree background during a video call. That background used to move in the same direction as your screen moved. This feature has already been rolled out to the public, and you can enjoy it while on a video call.

Google Meet will now cancel background noise on your phones too

In Google Meet, the noise cancellation feature was only available to desktop users, leaving mobile users behind. If there are both mobile and desktop users present, this might make for a difficult encounter. Mobile users are more likely to be in noisy areas, such as sidewalks or coffee shops, because it is so much simpler to move your phone to different locations.

Google decided to gradually roll out the noise cancellation feature to mobile users. The feature will eliminate background sounds such as typing, noisy streets, construction activity, and room echo.

It especially targets noise that comes from non-human sources, and it frequently succeeds. Techradar points out that since it doesn’t filter human speech from other sources, it won’t filter anything that isn’t human. As a result, background noise such as a radio or a conversation won’t be filtered out.

Since this is a Google Workspace function, not all users will have access to it. Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Essentials, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus, Education Plus, Teaching and Learning Upgrade, and Frontline users can access it.

Google added that users in South Africa, the United Arab Emirates, and the nearby areas are now unable to access this service. We don’t know if the business intends to eventually include those markets in the feature’s scope.
