As we get older, some of us can use an audio boost from time to time, especially in cafes, restaurants and other public places where there’s a lot of background noise. With Google’s Sound Amplifier, audio is more clear and easier to hear.
According to Google: “You can use Sound Amplifier on your Android smartphone with wired headphones to filter, augment and amplify the sounds in your environment. It works by increasing quiet sounds, while not over-boosting loud sounds. You can customize sound enhancement settings and apply noise reduction to minimize distracting background noise with simple sliders and toggles.”
Available on the Play Store, the app supports Android 9 Pie or later phones and comes pre-installed on Pixel 3.
