I am using Skype for Business for calls at work. After upgrading from Spectre x360 2017 (aexxx) to 2019 ('gem cut' apxxx) model, people started complaining about a 'background noise' on my end. Also, Skype for Business app often pops up a warning message: "You seem to be too close to the microphone" (or something along these lines) - but I am not.
I looks like the built-in microphone array in 2019 gem cut is very sensitive, and it is picking a lot of background noise. I never experienced this kind of problems on my previous Spectre x360 - though, it had some Bang&Olufsen software installed that offered 'noise cancellation' settings for the microphone array (my new Spectre x360 is generally bloatware-free).
Any one noticed similar behaviour on their Spectre x360 2019 ?
