Microsoft brings Advanced Audio processing technology to Skype

Skype logoOne of the benefits of Skype is that it is widely available on a variety of platforms, ranging from Windows computers, to those running OS X, to iOS, Android, and Windows Phone. Now if youre a heavy user of Skype and use it frequently to make VoIP calls, you might be interested to learn that the company has recently introduced what theyre calling advanced audio processing technology in the latest build of Skype.

For those wondering what the technology is about, well its basically a piece of technology that helps to improve the quality of your voice calls even in environments which might prevent you from experiencing good audio quality, like in a noisy or busy environment such as a train station or in a bar or party.

According to Sriram Srinivasan, the Senior Program Manager for Audio Digital Signal Processing, he states that there are several Lumia handsets that currently have the hardware that allows the Skype team to ensure that the software can do what they want it to do. For example, When youre activating the front facing camera, signals from all the microphones are combined using Lumias smart signal processing technology to zoom in to your voice and cancel everything else.

Of course this isnt a Windows Phone exclusive as Skype is working to trying to bring these improvements to other devices, although we guess it would help if your device had the hardware to better facilitate the improvements. In any case like we said if youre an avid user of Skype, perhaps the latest update is one youll want to check out ASAP!
