Microsoft’s Surface Laptop Studio recently added support for Voice Clarity, which helps improve audio quality when speaking through Windows 11. While some apps have similar functionality, Voice Clarity is built into Windows 11 and can work with n any program. The only problem is that, at the moment, it is limited to specific hardware. Voice Clarity support comes with the latest device firmware update.
Microsoft announced several features focused on virtual communication at its Windows 11 event earlier this month. Many of these features require a neural processing unit (NPU). The Surface Laptop Studio doesn’t have an (NPU), so it’s safe to assume that Voice Clarity doesn’t need it.
Other features announced at the event, such as native support for eye correction, background blur, auto-framing, and noise removal, require an NPU and will be limited to specific devices, including Lenovo ThinkPad X13s. Voice Clarity will also be rolling out to more devices in the future.
Voice Clarity helps deliver clearer sound when speaking through Windows 11. It reduces background noise and can also improve your voice as you move around a room. The feature requires Studio Mics, such as those found in Surface Laptop Studio and Windows 11.
The latest firmware update for Surface Laptop Studio also improves touchpad response and reliability, and improves device performance and stability.
You can grab the latest Surface Laptop Studio update by finding it through the Windows 11 Settings app or by manually updating your device.
