Working from home? Microsoft Teams now uses AI to filter out background noises when on a video call.

March 26, 2020

Seeing as many people are working from home during the coronavirus pandemic, video conferencing has become the new normal for meetings. Microsoft has revealed a new feature on its popular video conferencing program, Teams, that can cancel out almost all background noises when you are in a video meeting. The program uses advanced AI to filter out any sounds that are not your voice. This means your colleagues won’t hear your dog, kids, your keyboard strokes or the cracking of the chips you are snacking on.
