Working at home is now part of our daily life. Including the free and paid service of Zoom, 300 million people participate in daily meetings on Zoom all over the world. In addition, this is a 2900% increase after December 31, 2019.
When we work from home, we often don’t hear important things due to unwanted noise in zoom meetings. Understanding this user problem, Zoom has now brought a new free Crisp tool. It helps you focus by blocking out unwanted noise.
What is a “crunchy” tool
During meetings, prevents unwanted noise from babies, barking of pets, typing on the keyboard and squeaking of ceiling fans, coolers or traffic. This is a free built-in noise cancellation function.
Will also be able to block sound from others
Not only that, Crisp also allows you to cancel noise from other members involved in the video conference. It acts as an intermediary between your microphone input and the video conferencing tool. Uses algorithms to detect and cancel noise. The good thing is that this free tool not only supports Zoom, but also many other popular conferencing platforms including Teams, Slack, Hangouts, Skype, and Webex. If you are not using any of these applications, there is also a “Other Applications” option for other video conferencing application services.
