How To Remove Discord Background Noise | NEW & Updated in 2023

Discord is often the go-to voice and video chat app for millions of gamers around the world. It also hosts some of the fastest growing communities for many other hobbies aside from gaming. When it comes to voice communication, Discord uses the state of the art noise suppression technology to remove background noise, thanks to Krisp. Krisp is enabled by default when you launch Discord although you can manually disable it in case you don’t need it, or if you prefer to use another software with similar function.

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to effectively block out unwanted noise while you’re conversing with your friends on Discord.

How to remove Discord background noise?

If you use Discord when gaming or video conferencing, you should consider using the app’s noise suppression feature, especially if there’s a source of background noise nearby, or if you don’t have a high quality mic. The new noise suppression feature is powered by Krisp, which uses artificial intelligence to filter out non-human voices like vacuum humming, fan noise, air conditioning buzzing, dogs barking, or any other background noise.

Alternatively, you can opt not to use Krisp and instead use other third party software such as NVIDIA Broadcast to remove background noises. 

Check out the two methods below on what you need to do to use either Krisp or a third party software to improve your voice calls or voice quality. 

Method 1: Remove Discord background noise with Krisp.


For desktop users, follow the steps below on how to enable Krisp noise suppression feature:

  1. Open Discord app.
  2. Go to Settings (cog or gear icon).
  3. Click on Voice and Video.
  4. Go to Advanced section and make sure that the button above Krisp is enabled. It must be green and show a check mark.

If you’re already in a voice or video chat, you can skip going into Settings and simply click the Noise suppression button instead. Once you’ve clicked it, make sure that Noise Suppression is enabled. You can also test your microphone while in this window.


If you’re using Discord on your mobile phone or tablet, these are the steps that you can do to use Krisp:

  1. Open the Discord app.
  2. Tap on your profile image at the lower right corner.
  3. Scroll down to App Settings and tap on Voice and Video.
  4. Under Voice Processing section toggle on Noise Suppression.

When already in video calls or voice chat, you can simply find and tap the Noise Suppression button to enable this feature.

Method 2: Remove Discord background noise using other software.

If you don’t want to use the new noise suppression feature from Krisp, there are other alternative software such as DSP Soundware, Noise Gate, SoliCall, Samson Sound Deck, or NVIDIA Broadcast (if you have an NVIDIA GPU). 

All you have to do is to ensure that you configure the software to enable noise suppression and then select it in the Discord Voice Settings.

For example, if you have an NVIDIA graphics card, you can use the NVIDIA Broadcast Noise Removal feature and select this app in Discord Voice settings to give block unwanted background noise.
