  Info

A virtual device refers to a device file that has no associated hardware. It mimics a physical hardware device when, in fact, it exists only in software form. Therefore, it makes the system believe that particular hardware exists when it really does not.

Krisp creates an additional layer between the physical microphone/speaker and the communication app you are using. To remove the noise coming from other participants to you, the audio is received from the communication app. It is processed on your device to remove noise by Krisp Speaker and then transmitted to your physical speakers.
