If you ever wonder how effectively Krisp detects and cancels the surrounding noise, the widget will give you the insight.
Note: To benefit from the feature, make sure to have Krisp version 1.19.1 or higher on Mac. Please note the feature is in beta.
You will see the following:
- Remove Noise toggle for the Krisp microphone. The noise will be removed only if it's turned on.
- Indication of the overall noise intensity in your environment.
- Green and red waves showing the human voice and noise present in the environment respectively.
- The app(s) Krisp is connected to (or indication that there is no connected app).
You can open the widget before the call to get an idea of your noise environment. This way, you will feel confident during your call knowing how much of the noise is removed and so doesn't reach the other call participants.
The widget can open up in two ways:
- manually >>> with the Show widget link in the Krisp app.
- automatically >>> when a call starts. For that,
- Go to the Preferences.
- Make sure to have the Show widget when call starts box checked.
You can close the widget in two ways:
- Click on the minimize button.
- Click on the Hide widget link in the app,
The Krisp widget will give you an insight into the noise state of your call right after its end. If the widget has been open at the moment when the call ended, you will see the impact window for 10 seconds.
Here is what you will see:
- The call duration
- The percentage of noise that was present in your audio during the call and removed by Krisp microphone
- The average noise intensity in your environment during the call
Note: The call will be considered as ended when the Krisp microphone is no longer used. If Krisp microphone is deselected in the calling application setting during the call, it will be considered as ended.
You can check the Krisp impact on your last call from the widget.
Hint: If you mute yourself from the conferencing app, the physical microphone used in Krisp will still capture the noise from your environment, and include the info in the call stats.
