Remove background noise from voice calls made with any communication app, from both the input and output stream, and enjoy clearer conversations
The pandemic has made everyone reliant on remote communication, and many people were not prepared for it. Some microphones pick up a lot of background noise, especially without adequate software noise cancellation, and loud peripherals make this problem even worse.
Utterly adds a noise removal feature for users who don’t already have it, and it can also supplement noise blocking technology that simply isn’t powerful enough. It works by creating two additional audio devices whose audio streams are processed to remove unnecessary sounds.
Block noise from input and output streams
While many voice chat apps and sound card/microphone applications include noise blocking technology, most aren’t capable of processing incoming audio. Your microphone might be noise-free, but you still hear background sounds from other people.
Utterly can process both audio streams, which means that both your voice and those of everyone else in your conversation will be crystal clear. That makes the app doubly useful, as you don’t have to convince your friends or team members to install it as well.
Very effective noise cancellation
The static noise blocker is quite similar to the classic noise cancellation function available in most other applications, and it works well with steady background noises. It can be used for free indefinitely, and while it’s not too different from most in-app noise removal features, the fact that it works with both audio streams is a big plus.
The active noise blocker is quite a bit more advanced, relying on AI to detect sounds that shouldn’t be broadcast to others, even if they are intermittent, something classic noise removers have trouble with.
Try it if you have problems with noise during voice calls
Utterly is very easy to set up. Once installed, you just need to set the new audio devices as the speaker and microphone in your conferencing app. As long as your chat platform allows you to select your preferred audio devices, Utterly will be compatible.
Even if your microphone setup does a good job of blocking noise, this app can prove very valuable for making others’ voices more discernible and removing noise that would otherwise be very irritating.
