Microsoft Teams Uses AI to Reduce Background Noise

Microsoft Teams saw a huge influx of users in March, and remains a very popular choice for workforce communications. This due to the many great features for businesses including screen sharing and chat function.

Microsoft continues to stay ahead of the game when it comes to remote and flexible working. A new feature released this November using Artificial Intelligence to reduce background noise making interruptions from noisy pets and construction a thing of the past!

How does it work?

Businesses can expect to see artificial intelligence leveraged to reduce background noise and enhance the overall user experience for Microsoft Teams. Currently, Microsoft Teams utilises deep neural networks that are specially trained to analyse audio. The existing version of Microsoft Teams enables users to remove some background noise and reduce unwanted disruptions during calls. However, the new feature will allow for a “high” option for noise suppression.

Still at the forefront of security

Online security still remains a huge concern for businesses this year and is one of the reasons why Teams is favoured over many other video and audio call applications. It is built on the Microsoft 365 and Office 365 enterprise-grade cloud, delivering advanced security and compliance capabilities to keep users safe. Files shared via Teams are stored in SharePoint and are backed by SharePoint encryption, providing an extra layer of security.
