Google is rolling out noise canceling to Google Meet for Android and iOS. But unfortunately, it won’t be available to everyone. You must be a G Suite Enterprise or G Suite Enterprise for Education customer to use the feature. This handy feature to cut off unnecessary sounds was introduced for personal computers back in June; and received a lot of positive reviews.
Google Meet app for Android and iOS has received noise canceling feature
The noise canceling function can filter out noises from typing on a keyboard, closing a door, loud music, and other annoying noise. However, at the moment, it will not be able to filter out voices coming from the TV or from several people talking at the same time.
Google’s G Suite Updates blog states that the noise canceling feature is disabled by default on the smartphone. But it can be enabled during a call by accessing the call settings. To enable it, you need to select Advanced and “Enable the function before the video call.”
The feature is being rolled out today and should be fully rolled out within a few days.
Keep in mind that the noise canceling function is not currently available in all countries of the world. But, a lot of countries are included in the list of states where the function is supported. According to Google, noise cancellation is not yet available in the following countries. Australia, Brazil, India, Japan, New Zealand, South Africa, UAE.
