More people are working from home now than ever, which means that more of us have become painfully aware just how noisy everybody’s homes can be. Online work meetings can be convenient and safer than meeting in an office conference room but not anywhere near as quiet, unless of course the participants in that meeting are using Krisp, an incredible (and free to use) noise cancelling app that uses artificial intelligence to filter out unwanted noise from your online calls and videoconferences, both at your own mic and on the other end or ends of the conversation.
With Krisp, only your voice and the voice of whoever you’re speaking to online will be part of your conversation, and any other noises that might be happening in the background are filtered out. How? Krisp works with hundreds of different online communications platforms, including Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Slack, and Discord, and many more — over 800 in all. Krisp makes communications on these platforms crystal clear and quiet through the power of AI machine learning, analyzing 20,000 different noises on 50,000 different speakers, across more than 25,000 hours of audio, and all that experience is put towards making your calls as close to perfect as they can be.
Eliminating background noise is the central feature of Krisp, but it can also boost voice quality and even works in a low power mode, relieving your PC or phone of heavy CPU usage. And if you have privacy concerns about Krisp, save them, because all audio processed by the app stays on your device, with no cloud storage involved at any point.
One of the coolest things about the Krisp noise cancelling app is that it has a version that’s absolutely free for up to two hours of telecommuting per week. But if your typical work week involves more online video meetings or conference calls than that, you can upgrade to Krisp Pro, which costs just $5 a month when you pay upfront for an annual subscription. If you’re in charge of a team of telecommuters, there are also Krisp Teams and Krisp Enterprise, and you can get all the information you need from the Krisp site now.
GitHub, Fuze, ServiceTitan, and Amplitude are just some of the companies that have sworn by Krisp for making their work-from-home operations quieter, clearer, and more efficient. But since Krisp can be yours absolutely free, you don’t have to take anyone else’s word for how it works — just try it for yourself and hear how this noise cancelling app can turn even the loudest and most hectic part of your home into a quiet, soundproof office, at least as far as the people you’re talking to are concerned.
So if you spend any time at all working from home and have been irritated by noisy background distractions and bad voice quality, there’s no reason not to give the Krisp noise cancelling app a try now.
