active noise cancelling for meetings
Provide active noise cancelling for the person speaking. Many times when I am speaking in a meeting there is background noise around me (whether it is office noise or my kids at home when I take meetings from home). It would be nice to be able to cancel background noise and issolate just my voice for the meeting.
Thank you for your feedback, ML-based noise canceling is now available on Windows Desktop. This will help with background noise like shuffling papers, slamming doors, barking dogs, and so on.

Background noise suppression will be extremely helpful now that we all working from home. This is a must needed feature for Teams.

With Windows support done and Mac support on the near-term roadmap, could we please get an update on active noise canceling support for the Linux client?
We really miss it on Mac OS. We hope this will come soon
This feature would be great/ Similar request is also here: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/40764304-internal-noise-canceling
it would be awesome to do meetings with active noise cancellation for both outgoing sound and incoming sounds.

Teams announced this feature back in March, but still nothing show up on the roadmap. What is going on?
I've seen articles where intelligent audio muting or silencing is being built into the product - I remember seeing that noise from opening a bag of chips can be removed from being broadcast - that sort of thing. Often the person running the meeting must also take notes. The keyclicks can be very disruptive and muting isn't always an option, especially if others are taking their own notes and not 'mute-mindful.' Can keyboard noise (or squeaky chair syndrome, excessive mouth breathers for those with phones and/or gaming headsets with wrap-around mics, etc...) be cancelled from being broadcast to meeting participants? That'd be super-helpful! Thanks for considering...please consider!
We have switched from Skype to Teams and have issues with the increased background noises with Teams. Please provide Teams also with the same or better noise reduction than Skype.
We did multiple tests, also with MS support. A huge difference in call quality! (Sennheiser headsets)

The software should be able to focus on the speaker's voice and cancel/reduce any other disturbing background noises e.g. drilling neighbors, crying kids etc.

This would improve the overall meeting experience tremendously. Especially since so many people are working at home.

I'm loving the Krisp noise cancellation they use in Discord. Teams should get it. My team use Discord and we leave the mic open all day. No noise of bashing keyboards, surf breaking on the beach, seagulls squawking and all those other background sounds you usually get when working from home.
Yes, I am looking for this feature too. To cancel background noise while in meeting but cant mute off mic.
Is it available yet?

Any update here? Is this under consideration?
Background noise is a considerable distraction.
People typing on noisy keyboards without being muted is a considerable distraction.
Are both of these detectable enough to be automatically removed or warnings presented to the noisy participant?

I have seen a demonstration of this feature at the Gartner Symposium late 2019. I thought this was work-in-progress already. Is that not the case?

Read somewhere that MSFT will soon be supporting the Noise Cancellation feature.
Couple of questions
1. Any idea when an updated Teams apps would be available with this feature ?
2. Does this mean that we do not need to use high end headsets for noise cancellation ? and everything will be done by the App itself if the voice is through App instead of Mobile/PSTN ?
Would love to see Krisp.ai integration added, similar to what Discord has just done.
Background Noice Cancellation will be extremely helpful now that we all working from home.
Now that we are all working remotely and are at home with our families who are either also working or going to school, having this as a built in feature would be extremely beneficial!!!
