Chatting while gaming on your Xbox One Series X/S can be fun, but the poor quality party chat microphones that let in every barking dog and blaring TV? Not so much. Now Microsoft is doing something about it by introducing noise cancellation to party chat in the latest Xbox Updating

“We’ve enabled a new feature that processes your microphone input through a noise-canceling step to produce cleaner sound in your Party Chat session,” it wrote in the Xbox blog. “The setting is enabled by default, but can be changed from the drop-down menu.”

The feature appears to be inspired by Discord’s Krisp audio filters, along with NVIDIA’s underrated Broadcast technology. Krisp has been a mixed bag – while the AI ​​filters out most of the sounds (mechanical keyboards, chip crunching) except voices that some users have complained about reduced sound quality

The Xbox update also includes several fixes for audio, controllers, HDMI CEC, Guide, and more. It is entering the alpha lead ring today, but should be rolled out more widely in the near future.
