After the Eight months, the developers of Krisp application that earlier arrived at macOS and with which we can reduce the background noise that exists in certain places (for example airports or coffee shops) during calls or video calls have just presented the version for Windows. In Product Hunt, platform specializing in releases related to software, has generated much expectation.
It makes good sense, since the KOSP macOS version won the “Golden Kitty” award as “product of the year” in Product Hunt. This tool uses machine learning to identify the background noises that exist in each place.
It also reduces the noise of the other person you talk to
Krisp is responsible for analyzing how our voice sounds, and basically discards everything else. In a simple way, we could say that everything that is not our voice is labeled as noise.
Another positive point is that this application works in both directions. This means that it is also responsible for analyzing the sound of the other person with whom we are speaking and, if it is in a noisy environment, we can also activate the noise reduction filter on its side.
To achieve this, Krisp modifies the audio signal before it reaches other applications or services. Thanks to this it is practically compatible with any application that makes calls or video calls: Hangouts, Slack, Skype, Messenger, etc.
In addition, the company says they are working on a mobile version that will be presented later this year. Like the version of macOS, the application for Windows can be downloaded for free, and we will have 14 days to test it thoroughly.
From there, it will pay: 20 dollars a month, 120 dollars for the annual license or 5 dollars a month if it is a group license. Krisp offers a way to extend the free period if we recommend the application to other people.
As we can see, it is not a very cheap service, but it can be very useful for people or companies that do many meetings remotely through calls or video calls (also for those podcasts that use this method to record the episodes).
