Microsoft Teams update
However, Microsoft claims its noise suppression feature is capable of cutting down on audio interference dramatically, allowing Teams users to hear one another more clearly. Soon, this will also be the case for the many macOS users out there.
According to Microsoft, the feature will begin to roll out to Mac devices almost immediately and all users should have access by the end of summer.
By default, the noise suppression feature is set to automatically detect the level of audio interference and adapt accordingly. Teams users can also dial noise suppression up and down manually, by selecting either Low or High mode.
However, Microsoft noted that devices running on Apple’s new M1 chip will not support High mode, and did not explain why or when this might change.
The noise suppression feature also comes hot on the heels of another macOS-related announcement. Last week, it was revealed that Teams for macOS will soon receive native notification support, further levelling the playing field across operating systems.
