TL;DR: Banish background noise with the Krisp AI-powered noise cancellation app. As of Aug. 5, try Krisp for free with 240 minutes per week of microphone and speaker noise removal.
For obvious and not-great reasons, more Americans than ever are able to work remotely. Working from home is largely favored by employees, who are able to achieve a better work-life balance and lower their stress levels. But employers and even the environment benefit as well. As we look to the future of the workplace, it’s looking more and more like it will remain remote-friendly for many jobs.
Of course, working remotely isn’t always sunshine and rainbows; it definitely has its downfalls. For starters, there are a lot more distractions. Between the humming of the dryer, your dog barking every time the wind blows, and that car alarm outside that keeps going off, it’s hard enough to focus on a simple task. Staying focused during a virtual meeting? Nearly impossible.
Fortunately, there’s Krisp — an AI-powered noise cancellation app that ensures your digital interactions are as crisp (get it?) and productive as in-person interactions. It basically turns your workspace, wherever that may be, into a soundproof meeting room — at least as far as the people on the other side of the call are concerned.
Introducing Krisp: an AI-based noise reduction app
How often do you find yourself muting your microphone during conference calls? Or worse, how many times do you ask others to mute theirs, just so you can hear what the speaker is saying? It’s frustrating, to say the least. With Krisp, however, you can remove all the unwanted noise — from your own mic and your peers’ — and focus on the actual content of the meeting. The app offers automated, AI-based noise reduction technology that reduces background noise on mics and keeps meeting members focused, regardless of where they’re working from.
The tech is based on deep neural networks and is trained using thousands of hours of audio from thousands of distinct speakers. Once downloaded, it essentially adds a layer between your physical microphone on your device and the conferencing app you use — and that layer doesn’t let any noise pass through except for human voices. So, even if your smoke alarm is going off in the background, your colleagues will only hear your crystal clear voice.
How to reduce background noise on mic
While the technology is quite complex, using Krisp is incredibly user-friendly. You’ll simply choose Krisp as your microphone and speaker in your device’s audio settings and it will automatically run on your communication app of choice. It’s compatible with over 800 apps, including Microsoft Teams, Slack, and Zoom, so you’ll be covered no matter what your boss decides to try this week. It even offers full support for any headset, microphone, and speaker. So rather than frantically messing with your computer settings in an effort to reduce background noise on your mic, just turn on Krisp and enjoy more productive online meetings.
All of the audio processing happens directly on your computer, so none of your voice data is stored on the Krisp servers. The company is security-focused and will ensure your private meetings remain private. The noise-canceling app is trusted by big-named companies like GitHub, Discord, Wayfair, and even NASA.
