Take advantage of Google Meet's noise-cancellation feature on Android

Google Meet lets you easily tune out ambient noise — here's how to set it up.

Google Meet is one of the best teleconferencing apps available today, and the best part is that it routinely gets new functionality. A recent addition is noise cancellation. It automatically tunes out ambient noise in your surroundings, so your voice comes through clearly in meetings.

The utility relies on Google's AI skills and does a brilliant job cutting out any ambient sounds. I rely on it quite heavily to ensure it cuts out the hum of my air conditioner in daily meetings. So if you use Meet a lot and have a lot of ambient noise where you're working — the hum of an AC, traffic sounds, or the like — here's how to tune it out.

How to enable Google Meet's noise cancellation on your Android device

For this guide, I will use an instant meeting to show where the noise cancellation toggle is located. You can find the option under the same menu when you're joining a meeting.

  1. Launch Meet.
  2. Select New meeting.
  3. Tap Start an instant meeting.

  4. In the toolbar at the bottom, select the action menu (three vertical dots in the bottom right).
  5. Select Settings.
  6. Toggle Noise cancellation to On.

That's all there is to it! Google will now automatically tune out any sound that isn't human speech. The tool is remarkably effective at eliminating background noise, so if this is an issue in your daily meetings, now you know how to use Meet's built-in tool for clearer audio.

The caveat with this option is that it is only available for paying Google Workspace users, so if you have a regular Google account, you won't be able to access this feature. Google Meet is designed for business users, and while the service is available for free, some features are limited to paying customers. If you routinely join your meetings from your phone, you may want to take a look at the best phone stands for Google Meet.

How to watch England vs New Zealand: Live stream 2nd Test series cricket on

With the first Test ending in a draw, the series is on a knife edge at Edgbaston, as Joe Root's side look to put off the field controversies to one side and claim a much needed win against the Kiwis. Don't miss a single ball of the 2nd Test with our England vs New Zealand live stream guide below. The series has been somewhat overshadowed by the emergence of offensive historic tweets posted by Ollie Robinson who made his debut in the opening Test but has since been suspended. With the controversy still brewing amid interventions from politicians and accusations leveled at other members of the team, Root has a battle on his hands to keep his side focused on the game ahead. One positive for Root coming into the game is that they'll be playing in front of a near capacity crowd at Egbaston, with the overwhelming majority of the expected 18,000 spectators set to be cheering on the home side. The tourists have been delivered a huge blow coming intot his final match, with s

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world. For now, here's a tongue-in-cheek look at six features Apple, um, borrowed from Android with its latest software releases. Jump to: iPad widgets and app drawer Live Text Apple Maps AR navigation iOS notifications New Siri capabilities Apple Photos Bonus: What Google needs to steal iPad widgets and app drawer iPad OS 15 introduced two big new updates for the iPad home screen today: widgets and the App Library. If you think this sounds awfully familiar, there's a good reason for that. 2020's iOS 14 introduced both

Every armor set in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart

Armor up Ratchet and Rivet before taking down their enemies. Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart features several armor sets that both Ratchet and Rivet can wear throughout the game, giving them damage buffs and other benefits. Each armor set is comprised of three pieces; the helmet, chest, and boots. Without all three pieces of a complete set, you won't get their collection bonus buffs. Thankfully, each map tells you exactly where to find the armor you need. It's then all about exploring the area and picking it up. You'll find most pieces within optional dimensional rifts that feature platforming puzzles of some kind, and there are eight total sets to be found. Here's every armor set in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart and the buffs that they offer: Galactic Ranger Description: The classic helmet of the Solana Galactic Rangers. The Galactic Rangers' chest armor is forged with justice and Raritarium. The Galactic Rangers' pants protect the galaxy... and your legs
