What is Krisp?
Krisp is a 3rd party machine learning, noise filtration software that runs on your device. Krisp is able to remove background noise much better than traditional solutions, letting you have clear conversations even in busy environments!
Krisp is also a stand alone app. You can learn more about their company and software specifically on their website here.
What does Krisp do on Discord?
We’ve integrated Krisp to improve our voice call experience even further. By toggling on Krisp we use machine learning to remove background noises that aren’t human voices such as dogs barking, vacuums, or doors slamming while still passing through your voice.

My Krisp keeps turning off automatically
When device CPU usage is really high, Krisp will automatically turn off to preserve voice performance and notify you.
We suggest that you lower your CPU usage overall before you re-enable Krisp, otherwise Krisp will continue to automatically turn off.
Am I passing any information to Krisp when I turn it on?
We do not pass any information or data to Krisp when you enable the tech on Discord. This means that no voice, user, video or any data is ever sent or shared outside of Discord. The machine learning model runs on your device to cancel out noise - no data is ever sent to Krisp's servers under any circumstances.
Additional Frequently asked questions
Q: How much does it cost?
A: Krisp is free when you use it with Discord. If you want to use it outside of Discord in other apps, you can check out their pricing here.
Q: Will Krisp filter noises for other people on the call when I have it on?
A: No. Krisp will only filter noises coming from your side. So if your friends do not have it toggled on you may still hear their background noise.
Q: When should I use Krisp?
A: Krisp works best in environments where there is a lot of non-human voice background noise.
Because Krisp works to process out background noises if you are in a quiet environment and have a high-quality mic you may notice a decline in voice quality. If you’re in a quiet environment where you don’t need noise filtration we would encourage you to continue using voice chat without Krisp.
Q: Can I use Krisp on video calls?
A: Yes! Krisp can also be used on audio for video calls as well.
Q: Will Krisp work for Go Live?
A: Yes! Krisp can be used when you are using the voice channel in Go-Live stream.
Q: Does Krisp work on mobile?
A: As of 7/27/20 Krisp will be available on mobile devices
Q: If I toggle on Krisp in one voice chat will it toggle on in all other voice chats?
A: Yes. Once you toggle on Krisp it will be active for any new voice chats until you toggle it back off again.
