To test how Krisp cancels the noise:

  1. Open the Krisp app and click Test Noise Cancellation.

  2. Start your recording.



    For the optimal result, record at least 12-15 seconds. Make sure to talk during it.
  3. Listen to your original recording. Then enable the Krisp toggle to check the noise-canceled version.

The recording is being done locally. The audio data is not sent to or stored on clouds or servers. 


To cancel other people's voices, make sure to have Background Voice Cancellation active.


There is new noise in my environment. Will Krisp cancel it?

Krisp Noise Cancellation works by distinguishing human voice from all other sounds. So, with the introduction of the new noise, it will take Krisp at most a few seconds to start cleaning out. You can test how the noise is cleared from your environment with the Test Noise Cancellation feature.


I am standing far from my microphone. Will Krisp capture my voice and cancel the noise?

Krisp works best within a distance of 50cm. If you are standing farther than that, expect that your voice might be distorted.

What to do if the noise is not canceled as expected?

If you notice that the noise/voice cancellation is not done correctly, you can send a report from the same window.
