With more people working from home than ever before, many of us are learning the hard way just how noisy our homes are. That goes double for how noisy other people's homes are when you're on a video call. But with the Krisp noise-cancelling app, unwanted sounds during video calls are soon to be a thing of the past.

Krisp is a noise-cancelling app that mutes any and all background noise on both ends of your calls. It can turn any noisy part of your house into a quiet meeting room, at least as far as other callers are concerened. That's because it mutes unwanted noises between your microphone and the other end of your call on more than 800 communication apps. And it works on nearly any device, including Macs, Windows PCs, Android phones, and iPhones. And best of all you can get it for free.

And as mentioned above, Krisp is compatible with any microphone, headset, or speaker, and with pretty much every communications app out there, including the big ones like Zoom and Meet.

You might be wondering how Krisp is able to form a soundproof barrier between you and whoever you're talking to. This cone of silence is possible because of a sophisticated artificially intelligent Deep Neural Network technology that's learned how to screen background noise by listening to and analyzing 20,000 sounds from 50,000 speakers. It can now screen noise from both incoming and outgoing calls with crystal audio quality. Once you install Krisp, you can speak without noise by muting all outgoing background noise with the push of a single button. And with the push of another button, you can mute all background noises on incoming calls—whether the other person is using Krisp or not.

For regular remote workers, Krisp will likely become an indispensable part of your online communication repertoire. That means you might have some concerns about the privacy of your calls. But Krisp doesn't monitor your calls or log your data. And all of its audio processing is performed locally on your own device, so they can't listen in even if they want to.

The Krisp noise-cancelling app is already trusted by telecommuting professionals at companies like Intel, Discord, and many others. So if you're ready to say goodbye to ambient meows and random kitchen noises during work meetings, you can get Krisp for free right now at the app's official site. So check it out, and enjoy a new era of peace, quiet, and clarity.
