Microsoft says, “We’ve enabled a new feature that will process your microphone input through a noise suppression step to help produce cleaner audio in your Party Chat session.” They further add, “The setting is enabled by default but can be toggled from the dropdown options menu.”

While the noise suppression function will only be available in Party Chat, for the time being, it may have practical implications in some of Xbox’s most popular multiplayer games. Most importantly, games like Among Us, Roblox, and Sea of Thieves may benefit, as all of these Xbox titles support proximity chat.

There’s nothing worse than revealing a team’s whereabouts or leaking sensitive information because of a defective microphone. In the future, developers may be able to prevent these concerns on Xbox.
