Skype’s voice and video-calling app has undergone many improvements since last year’s lockdown. Skype has been all about improving voice and video experience for its users. Skype now offers a desktop version with an AI-enabled noise cancellation feature.

Skype explained in a blog post that the technology was originally developed by Microsoft Teams. Skype announces the release of its latest background noise suppression feature in Skype’s Skype desktop app. It was initially developed by Microsoft Teams. “It is designed to suppress all background noises, except voice during Skype meetings.” the feature states.

What is the best way to activate noise cancellation on Skype

On the desktop version of the app, you can activate the Settings option.

Select Audio and Video from the Settings menu.

Scroll down to Noise Cancellation for Audio and Video.

Click on the arrow at the bottom of Noise Cancellation tab to select ‘High.

This feature is available only for desktop users. This feature is not available on mobile and web versions. For Mac users, this option is available.

How does technology work?

The new function removes background noise from the speaker without any impact. The technology analyzes the audio and determines what it is. It uses deep neutral network to accomplish this. This technology is different from conventional noise cancellation technology because it cannot distinguish complex sounds such as typing, chewing of food wrappers, or dog howling.

Machine learning (ML) is used to differentiate between clean and noise. This technology is also known as artificial intelligence (AI). A representative dataset was created to train the ML model for all scenarios Skype users face. According to the post, the dataset must vary in terms of clean speech and noise type as well as the context from which Skype users make online calls.

The company claims that it has collected speech data and noise data over 760 hours for the training module. The company collected noise data under a range of conditions, such as running water or snoring.
