This article explains how to utilize a noise suppression filter which can help remove distracting noises that are picked up by participants' microphones and create a better meeting experience.
Prerequisites for noise suppression
- Zoom desktop client for Windows, 5.2.0 or higher
- Zoom desktop client for macOS, 5.2.0 or higher
How to suppress background noise
1. In the Zoom desktop client, click your profile picture and then click Settings.
2. Click the Audio tab.
3. Under the Suppress background noise section, select the level of suppression you wish to use:
- Auto: This is the default setting and will apply moderate background noise reduction when needed.
- Low: Noise reduction will be minimal, and it'll block low levels of background noise. This setting is best for casually playing music, as it will preserve as much of the original sound as possible.
- Medium: Best for reducing and eliminating background noise in standard environments, including fans, pen tapping, etc.
- High: Noise reduction will be at its most aggressive and eliminate noise such as crunching of paper or wrappers, keyboard typing, etc.
