Since the launch of its new Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, Microsoft has taken care to refine the OS of its new consoles. The American giant thus corrects the few known malfunctions, and takes care of optimizing the interface of its machine, with in particular new accessibility options or even better functioning of the Quick Resume. Today, Microsoft optimizes the experience of (many) online gamers on Xbox.
Another Xbox update
Indeed, online gamers have all one day been confronted with microphones from other players, which broadcast parasitic noises, sometimes in spite of themselves. It’s those noises called “parasites“which Microsoft wants to eradicate with its new update, which includes a noise cancellation feature during conversations.
Microsoft explains: “We’ve enabled a new feature that processes your microphone input through a noise suppression stage to help produce cleaner audio in your Party Chat session. The setting is enabled by default, but can be toggled from the options drop-down menu.
Thus, the Microsoft OS will take care of analyzing the noises recorded by the microphone, to eradicate all the sounds that could disturb the player, to focus on the voices. For now, this new update is only available to Insider members, and will be rolling out to the general public in the coming weeks. In fact, the update is even available for members of the Alpha Skip-Aheador an invitational program among the players of the Insider program.
A particularly popular noise suppression process, which can already be found on other platforms such as Discord or even on PC, via Nvidia. The results are generally quite spectacular, and therefore allow conversations to be perfectly fluid, and devoid of the slightest parasitic noise.
