Noise Cancellation on Google Meet

Filter Out Noise from your Video Calls on Google Meet

To limit distractions in your video call, you can filter out background noise. Google Meet is able to  remove background noises such as typing, closing a door, or the sounds of nearby construction.

  • Google Meet filters out noises that don’t sound like voices. Voices from TV or people talking at the same time won’t be filtered out.
  • If non-speech is an important part of your call, like playing musical instruments, turn off noise cancellation.
