Set up any app with Krisp

This article will explain how to configure Krisp with any other application on your Mac and Windows devices.


Preconditions for your app/web-app to work with Krisp 

Krisp is designed to work with hundreds of apps and web-apps where your microphone/speaker or camera is being used. Krisp creates a virtual microphone/speaker and a camera on your machine that work in the app/web-app cancelling the noise and creating a virtual background.

For an app/web-app to work with Krisp, the app should:

  • be able to work with virtual devices in general,
  • have dedicated audio/video settings.


Configure Krisp with your app/web-app

If these two conditions are met, you will need a simple two-sided configuration to start using Krisp microphone/speaker and Krisp Camera in your communication apps.


Set up Krisp Microphone/Speaker with your app/web-app

Mac Windows
  1. Select the physical microphone and speaker you wish to use in the Krisp app and turn on the noise cancellation toggles.

  2. Select the Krisp microphone and speaker in the audio settings of the app/web-app you intend to have noise cancellation in. The below example is from Zoom:



Set up Krisp Camera with your app/web-app 

  1. Go to the Video tab of the Krisp app and select the physical camera you wish to use.

  2. Restart the communication app to make the Krisp camera appear in the list of the available cameras.
  3. Select the Krisp camera in the video settings of the app/web-app you intend to have a virtual background in. The below example is from Zoom: 



What if the app/web-app doesn't have audio/video settings

Desktop applications

If your desktop app doesn't let you choose a mic/speaker and a camera to work in it, unfortunately, you won't be able to use Krisp with it on your Mac device.


Web applications

If the web-app you use doesn't let you choose a mic/speaker and a camera to work in it, you can set Krisp to work with your browser in general. This article will tell you how to set up Krisp with browsers.
