Like Microsoft Teams, Google Meet teams are welcoming the many employees who are teleworking due to health risks related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Teams just added new, larger-than-life settings to make video conferencing meetings seem more human. This system also makes it possible to restore a classroom or bleachers for NBA games. While Google prefers to play on the quality of the product through its Meet service by announcing the addition of effective noise cancellation.
To use this new feature built into Google Meet, you must have a G Suite Enterprise or G Suite Enterprise for Education account. Mountain View presents this technology in such a way that background noise such as that of a keyboard or a barking dog is muffled when you are on the phone. To better understand the effectiveness of this process, we found the Venture Beat video that featured Serge Lachapelle, Director Product Management G Suite. See for yourself.
Awesome, isn’t it? Google had already introduced this technology for the web version of Meet, but this is a first for mobile use. According to the blog post written by Google, the noise cancellation feature is disabled by default on mobile devices. However, you can activate them while on a call by simply visiting the settings. Mountain View is proud to introduce this update today. So you should have access to it in the coming days. If not already.
Given the current economic situation, this type of improvement could be very useful. More and more people are working from home, like those at Twitter, who can now work from anywhere they want in life.
