Using Krisp Widget

Who can use this feature?

Users: users on all plans
From version: Mac 1.19.12, Windows 1.25.3

If you wonder whether there is any noise in your environment and if Krisp detects and cancels it, the widget will give you the insight. It can also show:

  • On Mac/Windows -  which part of the current meeting you have been talking.
  • On Windows - if the other people's voices will be filtered out from your calls.

 

Showing the Widget

Mac Windows

The Widget can open up in two ways:

  • manually >>> with the Show widget button in the Krisp app.

Using the Widget before the call

Mac Windows

You can use the Widget before the call for these purposes:

  • see if your voice is being captured by Krisp Microphone,
  • see if there is any noise in your environment.

Open the Widget. You can see the "Not used" indication showing that Krisp Microphone is not being used at that moment. The moving soundbar indicates that your voice is being captured.

When the Remove Noise toggle is disabled, and the bar goes red, it means there is noise present. Toggle on to see that the bar goes green. This means the captured noise will be canceled during the call.

  1. Meeting Duration
  2. Talk Time
  3. Talk Ratio
  4. Which app/apps use the Krisp Microphone at the moment
