Microsoft Teams Background Noise

Back in 2020, Microsoft first announced the first AI-based noise suppression feature in Teams. The AI-based noise suppression uses machine learning to learn the difference between clean speech and noise. This feature was first released on Windows and later expanded to Mac and iOS. Microsoft today announced that background noise suppression is now used by 91 million monthly Teams users in calls and meetings.

While we’re excited about the advancements in Teams call quality we’ve achieved through machine-learning and AI, we’re just beginning to realize the opportunities ahead. – Microsoft

After testing this feature with users for several months, Microsoft enabled this feature by default for most calls on Teams app on Windows and Mac.

Microsoft is also working to make ML-based noise suppression available on an expanded range of device types, including support for ARM-based devices and Microsoft Teams Rooms.
