Google has today announced that it is bringing noise cancellation feature to Android and iOS apps. When enabled, this feature removes background noise such as typing, sounds of a nearby construction site, and more from video calls automatically.

The Noise Cancellation feature was so far available on desktop platforms. Now it is being rolled out to apps as well.

This feature is OFF by default. If you want to use it, you need to enable it manually. For this, tap “More” overflow Menem then Settings, and click “Noise cancellation”.

Noise Cancellation feature is available for G Suite Enterprise and G Suite Enterprise for Education customers, but not G Suite Basic, G Suite Business, G Suite for Education, or G Suite for Nonprofits.

In another announcement, Google has also announced that attendance reports will also be available on Google Meet for Education meetings. It will be available in meetings with at least five (and no more than 250) participants. Reports will include the participant’s name, email, and length of time a participant was on the call.

If a participant disconnected and re-joined to the meeting, the report will show time time he first joined and the finally time he left. The total duration will be the sum of their sessions.
