Apple has improved its FaceTime video calling platform with numerous new capabilities in iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, aiming to make it a viable alternative to competitor video conferencing apps. One of these capabilities, Voice Isolation, may be utilized with third-party apps like WhatsApp, Teams and Webex to make it easier for people to hear your voice during a video conversation.
When you’re on a call, your device’s mic takes up a variety of noises in the area, but with Speech Isolation, machine learning differentiates these sounds, filters out any ambient noise, and prioritizes your voice so that it can be heard clearly.
However, if you want a wide range of sound to come through on a video call, Apple has included Wide Spectrum. Wide Spectrum, like Voice Isolation, may be utilized with any video calling software on your phone.
On an iPhone or iPad running iOS 15 or iPadOS 15, the instructions below teach you how to activate voice isolation and wide spectrum when on a video chat.
- Initiate a FaceTime video call or use a third-party app with a video calling function.
- Drag the Control Center down diagonally from the top-right corner of the screen while you’re in the call.
- Tap the Mic Mode button at the top.
- Select from Standard, Voice Isolation, and Wide Spectrum.
- Your selected microphone mode is now active, and you can turn it off at any moment by going back to the Control Center and choosing Standard.
