Krisp is probably the best Mac app for removing background noise from your video calls and voice calls. It removes the noise from both sides of the call, allowing you to speak and listen clearly without moving anywhere else or looking for quiet rooms.

4. Microsoft Office 365

Some years ago, before you could use Microsoft office on a Mac you had to go through a complicated set of steps and even when you got it to work, you had to worry about keeping the version you have updated. Hence it used to be a hassle, so much so, that most people abandoned it altogether.

Well good news: You can now use tools like Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, Excel, and others without having to go through the torture of yesteryears. Mac app store has released a Microsoft Office 365 which you can download and update easily.  

5. Facetime
