How to Enable Noise Cancellation on a Chromebook

In this article, we will learn how to enable noise cancellation on your Chromebook. This is an experimental feature at the moment.

Noise Cancellation on Chrome OS

Noise cancellation is currently available in the Canary channel of Chrome OS. If you use the Dev version of Chrome OS, you might see this feature working in coming weeks. For others, you can use these steps when noise cancellation is available on the Stable channel.

To enable noise cancellation on your Chromebook:

  1. Click the time/battery icon to open the system tray.
  2. Click the right arrow (>) next to the volume icon and slider.
  3. Under Input, slide the Noise cancellation toggle on.
  4. Use the noise cancellation/microphone gain slider to adjust your microphone’s sensitivity.

  1. Noise Cancellation on a Chromebook is not working for me. When I close the window noise cancellation turns itself off. I am on canary channel.

      This is a ‘work in progress” feature. It may not work as expected. Please keep trying.

  2. Will do.

  3. Hi Noise cancellation isn’t even shown on my Chromebook when I go to settings. Is it because the Asus Chromebook Flip C433T doesn’t support it as it’s a bit older?

  4. I don’t have a noise cancellation option. I do have a mic jack. If I have noise cancellation headphones will that work?

  5. i have a chrome Os and it does not have a noise cancellation option
