New Xbox noise suppression will get rid of respiration, clicking and music in get together chats

If you have Xbox friends who like to breathe heavily into their microphones, play loud music in the background, or loudly click on their controllers, Xbox’s new noise suppression feature is here to save you. Xbox Series X and S owners are getting an update today that has noise canceling during party chats to remove annoying clicks, background music, and breathing.

Noise suppression is enabled by default, but Microsoft notes that it’s easy to turn it on or off. “If you want to keep some kind of background noise at your party, like music, you can also turn off noise cancellation,” explains one Xbox support notes. “Just open the wizard, scroll to Parties & chat, and select Options. There you can enable or disable noise cancellation.”

Xbox noise suppression is similar to Discord’s Krisp audio filter and Nvidia’s impressive Broadcast app lets PC players filter out background noise.

This new Xbox dashboard update also includes a new way to join friends’ games. “Now the friends you share your game clips and screenshots with can not only watch your captures, they can start playing right away on their mobile device or PC with cloud gaming,” explains Microsoft. All you need to do is tap play from the clip, and you can start playing right in the browser. This is similar to how Google Stadia lets you share clips and friends can play games.
