Filter out noise from your video calls on Google Meet

Important: Noise cancellation is not yet available in Australia, Brazil, India, Japan, New Zealand, South Africa, UAE, and the immediately surrounding areas.

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

  • Audio capture from screen sharing won’t be affected by noise cancelling.
  • 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.

What you need

Noise Cancellation is currently available to Enterprise Plus and G Suite Enterprise for Education accounts on web, Android, and iOS.​

Noise cancellation is off by default but can be turned on or off during a video call.
