Google has started rolling out the live noise-cancelling feature for Google Meet users in India. The feature filters out the unwanted background noise during calls. Sounds like door slams, typing, a crying baby or from a construction site nearby are cancelled or muted automatically and only the person speaking is heard on the other end.

A cloud-based AI will be used to intelligently filter out the noise while letting your voice through. The filtered voices may sound like it is clipped or distant, but it will help get rid of such noisy interruptions.
