We have all been there: You’re on a video call, and the sound quality is so poor that no one can hear what you are saying, or your voice sounds garbled.
There are some hidden iPhone settings that will make sure you sound great during any video calls—even if the sound quality isn’t perfect.
Keep reading to learn more about these helpful settings and how you can use them to make sure you always sound amazing on your next video call.
One of the best hidden iPhone settings you can use to improve your sound on video calls is Voice Isolation. This setting allows your device to reduce background noise and focus on amplifying your voice, which helps ensure that it is heard clearly even when there are other noises in the room.
To activate Voice Isolation, simply start a call through the FaceTime app. During the call, swipe down from the top right corner. This will open the notification center.
As long as you have iOS 15 or later, you’ll see an option called “Mic Mode.” Tap it, and then select “Voice Isolation” from the list of options. That’s all you need to do—now your voice will be amplified and background noise will be reduced.
Adjust Audio Quality
Another great hidden iPhone setting that can help improve your sound during video calls is adjusting the audio quality. This is especially useful if you have poor internet connection, as it can help improve the sound quality of your calls.
Simply start a call through the FaceTime app and then swipe down from the top right corner to open the notification center. Select “Mic Mode” and then choose the “Standard” setting. While this option doesn’t provide the boost found in Voice Isolation, it can still help improve the sound quality of your calls and is worth giving a try.
Activate Wide Spectrum
Lastly, you can activate Wide Spectrum to improve the sound quality of your calls. This setting allows you to pick up sounds from both directions, which is great if you have multiple people on the call and want them all to be heard clearly.
To activate this setting, follow the same steps outlined in the previous methods. When you get to the Mic Mode section, select “Wide Spectrum” instead of Voice Isolation or Standard. Now your device will pick up sound from both directions and help ensure that everyone on the call is heard clearly.
With these three hidden iPhone settings, you can make sure you always sound great during any video call. So don’t let poor sound quality ruin your next video call—just try out these helpful settings and start enjoying clear audio.
