Krisp is the first ever innovative noise suppression tool that mutes background noise during calls. If you’re about to check out the wonders that it does, we’re here to guide you through the entire setup process.
Here’s the full list of steps that will help you get your own Krisp within a few minutes!
1. Download the app
Visit our krisp.ai website and download Krisp app for Mac (Windows launching soon) or simply click here for a quick download.
Once you double click on the krisp.pkg file, a pop-up window will open.
