Tech companies, including Apple, are offering new noise-reduction tools to filter out background noise on phone calls. Apple's Voice Isolation feature can be activated during a call by swiping down from the top-right of the iPhone, tapping Mic Mode, and selecting Voice Isolation.
Multiple Android phones offer similar features, such as Samsung using multiple microphones to remove background noise. Additionally, video conferencing platforms like Zoom, Google, and Microsoft Teams have improved their noise-cancelling strategies during calls.
The high and low settings on Microsoft Teams are ideal for different environments, while Clear Calling on the Google Pixel 7 enhances the caller's voice quality.
