The days of having to tolerate your friend’s loud, obnoxious breathing noises over Xbox Party voice chat are done, as Xbox has just released a new Xbox Series X/S Noise Suppression feature. It is available right now upon downloading Xbox’s latest system update.
“We’ve added noise suppression to parties on Xbox Series X|S consoles to help remove unwanted noises like gamepad clicks, breathing, and background noise from your parties, the release notes said.”
The feature can be turned on or off at any time by opening the guide and accessing the “Options” section of the “Parties & chats” feature. From there, you can enable or disable noise suppression.
Xbox is the latest company to offer this technology, after apps like Zoom, Discord, and Nvidia started rolling out their noise filtration features, allowing users to fully filter out background noise.
The update also brought with it more features, for example, the ability to now be able to jump into a game from your friends’ shared captures — meaning that you can now watch your friend’s match highlights and start playing the game immediately after for yourself.
The update also addressed issues players had been having trouble with, including one where players’ controllers kept desynching from their consoles and another where issues arose if players attempted to boot games after using a streaming service.
Though they provided a quick fix to a few of these issues, they’re likely saving the unaddressed ones for a later update. Click here for the full update release notes!
