How to Integrate Krisp with Google Meet

The pandemic has certainly brought about a paradigm shift to virtual. It has been over a year of video conferencing - from classes in schools and grad schools going online to remote work bringing in the need for several sync calls in a day.

One of the major challenges of using conferencing apps, such as Google Meet and Zoom is the inevitable background noise from various sources during the call, which often can come in the way of effectively listening and taking part in discussions, especially more impactful in a call with a large audience.

Over the next few minutes, let’s see how we can possibly mitigate the effect of noise by integrating Krisp, an AI-powered app that removes background noise and echos making meeting experiences much more pleasant, with Google Meet, widely used for conferencing in academia.

Please note that if you already have a subscription to an enterprise G-Suite workspace, you may want to try out the built-in noise cancellation feature that you have access to, and use Krisp for overhauling existing performance.

Kindly read ahead and find the steps to install Krisp and integrate it with Google Meet.
