Google Meet, the search engine giant's video conferencing solution that competes with Zoom and Microsoft Teams, gets noise cancellation with AI support. The results are impressive.

The use of video conferencing solutions within your own four walls, which has risen sharply due to the corona crisis and resulting home office boom , has brought up a number of challenges. For example, background noises from the participants' rooms can be annoying during important conversations - be it keyboard clatter, chip bag rustling or nervous clicks of pens. These and many other noises are said to be a thing of the past in video conferencing with Google Meet.

After manufacturing medical equipment, including protective visors for doctors and nurses, the American equipment supplier donated more than 30,000 pairs of Air Zoom Pulse sneakers to American but also European hospitals, notably in Paris.

Google Meet: Voice instead of rustling

The feature for noise suppression announced a few weeks ago works with the help of an artificial intelligence (AI). It filters out the user's voice and suppresses the other noises. Serge Lachapelle, head of product management at Google's G Suite, demonstrated the function in an video chat with Venturebeat - with impressive results. Noises, clicks and strumming were no longer audible after the noise suppression was switched on, but Lachapelle's voice was.

The function should be rolled out gradually and initially made available to G-Suite users (Enterprise and Enterprise for Education). The web version is said to be the first to have the noise cancellation feature; the Android and iOS applications will be supplied later. Since the beginning of May, Google Meet has also been available to non-G Suite subscribers

free of charge . However, the free meetings are limited to 100 participants and 60 minutes in length (from October).

With the new feature, Google Meet Microsoft and its solution is ahead of teams. Microsoft also announced a few weeks ago that it wanted to incorporate AI-based real-time noise reduction into teams. This should come along with other new features in the course of the year.

AI is trained in noise detection

Both the Microsoft solution and Google's are not the longer accessible noise filters, which can suppress noise like a permanently noisy air-conditioning system by orienting itself on pauses in speech. For the new functions

, a KI is trained on a whole bundle of possible disturbing background noises such as chip bags, doorbells or dog barking. In contrast, musical instruments, laughter or singing must not be filtered out.
