How to switch on Voice Isolation on iPhone to sound better

by admin

(Pocket-lint)-When Apple released iOS 15 in September 2021, it announced a number of features, including some improvements to the video calling app FaceTime. Eventually, in addition to extending FaceTime to Android and PC users via FaceTime Links, Apple also announced a feature called SharePlay, which introduced its Spatial Audio technology to the app.

That wasn’t the case. With the iOS 15 update, Voice Isolation and Wide Spectrum have also been introduced to FaceTime, with the former significantly improving the sound of video calls.

Voice separation is a machine learning feature that blocks ambient noise and prioritizes voice, resulting in very crisp, clear sound. Wide spectrum, on the other hand, increases ambient noise. It’s possible to switch between them, but finding the settings isn’t that easy, and that’s where we come in.

Whether you’re using another third-party app like FaceTime, Zoom, Facebook Messenger, or Teams, here’s how to turn on audio isolation to improve your audio in video calls.

How to turn on voice separation on iPhone to make your voice clearer in video calls

Voice separation is not the easiest setting to find. Unlike most iPhone and iPad tricks that change something in the settings, audio separation is a bit more hidden. Here’s how to find and turn on the audio isolation setting:

  1. Open the FaceTime app on your iPhone
  2. For Face ID models, swipe down from the top right of the iPhone or swipe up from the bottom of the iPhone SE (2022) to launch Control Center.
  3. There is a tile called “Mic Mode” in the upper right
  4. Tap that tile and select “Audio Separation”

Whether you use FaceTime, Facebook Messenger, Zoom, Microsoft Teams, or Google Duo, voice isolation will be turned on by default on your next video call.

How to turn on wide spectrum on iPhone to boost background noise

You can do the opposite of improving the sound of your audio, and turn on wide spectrum if you need ambient noise in the background where you actually focus. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Open the FaceTime app on your iPhone
  2. For Face ID models, swipe down from the top right of the iPhone, or swipe up from the bottom of the iPhone SE model to launch Control Center.
  3. There is a tile called “Mic Mode” in the upper right
  4. Tap that tile,[ワイドスペクトル]Choose
