How to use the noise canceling feature in Google Meet for your online meetings


Background noise during an ongoing meeting can be quite annoying at times and to address this issue, Google has recently implemented the noise canceling feature in Google Meet accounts for G Suite Enterprise, G Suite Enterprise for Education and G Suite Enterprise Essentials.

As of now, the feature is currently available only on the web and is expected to hit the mobile app version soon.

The noise canceling feature in Google Meet uses Artificial Intelligence to eliminate non-stationary noises, such as typing, opening and closing doors, and other background noises.

Here is what kind of noise the Google Meet noise cancellation filter filters

Noise canceling feature does not affect captured audio when screen sharing

The feature mainly filters out noises that do not sound like voices from someone else speaking behind you or that voices coming from the TV are not filtered.

If you want to enable this feature on Google Meet, follow the step-by-step instructions.


Go to the Meet home page


Click on the ‘Settings’ icon in the upper right corner


Activate noise cancellation

Disclaimer: The noise canceling feature is currently being phased in in Australia, Brazil, India, Japan and New Zealand. It may take time for it to appear in your G Suite account. Furthermore, all G Suite accounts are controlled by the organization itself, so the availability of the function may also depend on that.
