NVIDIA RTX Voice is a beta plugin that removes background noise from your environment in your streams, voice chats, and video conference meetings using the AI capabilities of NVIDIA GPUs. NVIDIA has included support for some of the essential apps for Windows 10, which it has officially tested. Whether you're using the best graphics card or a more affordable GPU, here are all the apps that support NVIDIA RTX Voice.

Note: NVIDIA notes that WebEx, Skype, Zoom, Slack, and Microsoft Teams may have issues with RTX Voice.

Using NVIDIA RTX Voice with other apps, GTX GPUs, and NVIDIA Broadcast

RTX Voice works by creating a virtual input device like a microphone and a virtual output device like speakers or a set of headphones. To use the noise cancellation feature, selecting the input device labeled as "RTX Voice" in your app of choice, or Windows 10 audio settings, should enable it for any app you use. Google Chrome is a solid example of how you can set up NVIDIA RTX Voice and use it with pretty much anything that has a web interface. For gaming, RTX Voice supports Discord, and for workplace communications, there's Microsoft Teams support, both of which are heavily recommended use cases to help cut the background noise during both, work and play.

Additionally, NVIDIA RTX Voice also works with the older GTX GPUs, provided you're on Windows 10, with the latest NVIDIA drivers. NVIDIA, however, warns that you may not get the same level of performance from older GPUs. However, this technology doesn't really rely on the Tensor cores that the new NVIDIA RTX GPUs have. So if you're one of the many that haven't been able to buy RTX 30-series GPUs thanks to the stock shortages, you should be fine with a GTX GPU.

NVIDIA RTX Voice has exited the beta and added to the NVIDIA Broadcast app as "Noise Removal." The improved stable version is only available as a part of NVIDIA Broadcast and not as a standalone app. The catch is that NVIDIA Broadcast only supports RTX series GPUs. So if you want to use RTX Voice with older GPUs, you will have to stick to this beta plugin.
