Background noise reduction in Google Meet now available to more users and turning on by default

Quick launch summary 

To help limit distractions in your video call, Google Meet can remove background noises such as typing, closing a door, or the sounds of a nearby construction site. Noise cancellation helps make calls more productive by reducing distractions that can divert attention away from the content of the meeting. 

Last year, we made noise cancellation on the web available to Google Workspace Enterprise Plus and Education Plus customers, and then made it available across web and mobile as well. Now, we’re making two additional updates to the feature’s availability: 
  • Adding availability for more users: Noise cancellation will now also be available to users in Google Workspace Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Essentials, and Enterprise Standard editions. It will be turned on by default for these users. 
  • Starting August 9, 2021, it will be turned on by default for Enterprise Plus users: Noise cancellation will be turned on by default for Google Workspace Enterprise Plus users who haven’t previously turned the feature off. Note that this change may change the setting for some current users. There will be no change in defaults or settings for Education customers. 


Getting started 

Admins: There is no admin control for this feature. 

End users: 
  • New users: This feature will be ON by default for Google Workspace Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Essentials, and Enterprise Standard users. When it’s available to their account, users will see a prompt notifying them about the feature and what it does. 
  • Existing users with Google Workspace Enterprise Plus: Starting on August 9, 2021, this feature will be turned ON by default for all users who haven’t previously turned the feature off. If you don’t want it to turn on by default, turn the feature on and off for your account before August 9, then the setting will not be changed. 
  • Existing users with Google Workspace for Education Plus: There will be no change in defaults or settings for Education customers. 
  • Visit the Help Center to learn more about turning background noise cancellation on or off for your account.
