The noise canceling option is a must have setting to have enabled when hosting professional meetings working from home.  There are too many outside instances that cannot be controlled around meeting times like garbage pickup or dogs barking to protect the home from package deliveries.  My only suggestion is to have the setting enabled as a default in the audio setting.

Whether I'm making whipped cream for my morning coffee or the dog is "helpfully" barking at a delivery person, noise reduction makes my meetings easier. It cuts the background life noise and has eliminated the delay of scrabbling to unmute myself. I've switched from 90% muted to 90% not muted in my meetings.

I live in a strata and every Thursday the landscape gardeners go through the property with their mowers, and blowers making a heck of a racket. Being able to host meetings and still block the background noise has been a game changer.

Hi,

 

With many more of us working from home , we are spending more and more of our day's working collaboratively with a team, meeting with vendors / supplier / customers and have little control over our environment at times.

The noise cancellation feature is amazing - making background TV or common household and neighborhood  noise just disappear without affecting voice quality.

Well Done !

I deliver remote training for hundreds of adult students every year.  Since we entered WFH I've heard doorbells, dogs barking, and a myriad of other distractions - as have my students.  This tool has improved the in-class experience for everyone.  Students have comments include:

  • "I love this new feature!"
  • "Why doesn't every platform have this option?"
  • "How did we ever do workshops without this?"

Good job!

Having had to work in a noise office and now from home for the last year this is a great feature for blocking out the noise of family life that must go on in the background while I work...... now if I only had a decent headset

This is a great feature that should be the standard. It is a lifesaver to have good background noise reduction when working from home. Dogs barking in the background will hopefully no longer be the star of the show at every virtual meeting!

It has been very helpful over the winter. My heating vent is in direct line with my computer, and therefore my microphone. This feature prevented the sound from distorting whenever the heat would come on during a meeting or presentation.

While I have not yet used the noise reduction functionality, in reading others' reviews and feedback, I am excited for our training team to use it. We will be sure to suggest that our presenters/speakers and attendees use the feature as well! Kudos to Cisco Webex for continually striving to improve the overall user experience for its platform users.

When working from home and a delivery driver stops in the street out front, my dog will always bark like crazy. This noise removal is awesome! Others can't even hear him!

Noise Removal help everyone who use it to ignore all the background noises and concentrate on what's really important -
MY VOICE !

The noise cancellation function makes sure that when activating it, only the voice of the speaker is heard, canceling the noise around him. I will use it when I work from home and children are around me.

Webx is a great way to connect with my students and parents.  The background noise sometimes can be a problem and I miss out on some of the students comments and what they are saying.  Reducing the background noise would be a great asset to teaching virtual.  

Thank you
