Add software noise level "traffic light" to Webex app

Returning to the open-plan office after Covid and all colleagues still using web conferences, the noise level sometimes is quite high. There are hardware dongles which can be added to the USB port showing the own talking noise level by green/yellow/red light. This also should be possible to add in the Webex app by software feature. An always in front "pop up window" with an added sensitivity level adjustment, this might be a helpful feature (at least for some persons who are reflecting their own behaviour :-) )

    Hello Ho Bao, that sounds great for all colleagues who are using Webex. But for the colleagues who are in the office and working normal without headphones on, it would be even more stressful. In a completely noise cancelled area, people use to speak even louder (experience since we have biaural headphones). So I still see the necessity for everyone to reduce voice level. With a signal function (optionally enabled by interested users) in the Webex app, the own behaviour could be reflected… so please try to check if it‘s possible to implement it. I mean, it should be quite easy… only some signal light which shows the personal „noise“level

    Webex app now offers noise removal and ability to optimize for your own voice only (ignore noise colleagues nearby). Very soon, we will enable the ability to remove noise from far-end users as well. End user should feel comfortable to speak freely in a noise environment. We hope you enjoy these innovations and no longer need to worry about the noise environment :)
