Dolby Voice for Laptops Aims to Boost Audio Quality of Video Calls and Make Meetings Less Fatiguing

Dolby has announced that the upcoming Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9 and X1 Yoga Gen 6 laptops will feature the new Dolby Voice audio technology that is touted to reduce background noises during video conference calls.

The American audio tech company explains (via The Verge) that the feature combines elements like background noise reduction and dynamic levelling to make video calls “sound clearer” and “more natural.”

The latest audio tech would hope to resolve shortcomings of work from home meetings, especially amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The company says that the Voice feature makes speech easier to hear when there are multiple people talking on the same call.
