Apple’s AirPods are about to get even smarter with adaptive voice and conversation awareness

Adaptive Sound will appear as an additional option alongside Full Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency Mode. When active, AirPods Pro constantly analyze your environment and adjust ANC and Transparency for the optimal listening experience.

Conversation Awareness will automatically activate Transparency Mode and lower the music volume when your AirPods detect speech — just like earphones from Sony and other brands. Once you stop speaking, the voice will return to normal.

Apple also demonstrated better background noise reduction to prevent people on the other side of the call from hearing unwanted distractions. The WWDC AirPods section featured a marching band surrounding a person wearing Apple’s second generation AirPods Pro. For the person on the other side of that call, the band’s cacophony was barely perceptible.

Automatic device switching between Apple platforms — which can be frustratingly difficult at times — should work faster and more reliably when using AirPods, according to a WWDC presentation. These updates are due this fall along with the release of iOS 17, iPadOS 17, and tvOS 17.

Speaking of tvOS, Apple has announced that FaceTime is coming to the TV screen (along with continuity camera support). Zoom and WebEx will release apps for the platform. tvOS 17 also adds Siri Remote functionality for location, a redesigned Control Center, and more.

Some of the new AirPods audio features are similar in concept to Google’s Clear Calling. “Clear Calling uses machine learning to identify, isolate, and eliminate distracting sounds like noise, wind, and traffic while improving the caller’s voice,” Google’s Brian Rakowski said during the company’s Pixel event last October. “So your friends can call you from anywhere, and you’ll be able to hear them just fine.” Clear Calling is rumored to be I headed over to the Pixel Buds Pro In the not too distant future.
