Noise reduction targeted for sound of breast pumps

Several my friends have recently given birth and one take away is - breast pumps are stupidly loud. With many work-from-home and hybrid cultures, people are more likely to schedule over the blocked time for pumping which can't really be rescheduled because it impacts supply.

New pumping parents are limited in participating in the call because they must stop the pump between each unmute since a breast pump has such a loud and recognizable sound. One of my friends just went back to work and is already talking about needing to skip important calls because of this.

It's a distinct sound that should be able to be removed from the background – doing this would enable pumping parents to participate more confidently and benefit their companies. This would be a great feature to show that Webex technology is making the workplace more inclusive.

    We have updated our Noise Removal feature to better target and remove the noise created by a large selection of breast pump devices.

    Do you have Noise Removal enabled on the client under the Smart Audio setting? This feature is enabled by default and this noise should be removed automatically.
