Clear calling: Google hopes to improve voice calls like it did Meet call clarity.
Messaging, video conversations, and social networking may have made phone calls obsolete. Your smartphone is still a phone, therefore good voice quality is vital for mobile meetings. Google is exploring a feature for Android 13 QPR1 Beta that could improve voice calls.
Google is working on a feature called "clear calling" that will reduce background noises during calls. It works "for most mobile networks" but it's "not available for Wi-Fi calling." Contents from your calls are "not sent to Google."

Clear Calling is in the works for a future version of Android, and it could help when making calls in busy areas. Clear Calling reduces background disturbances while on the phone, something premium Bluetooth earphones already do. Google’s processing won’t involve filtering the call itself. Wi-Fi calling isn’t supported on “most mobile networks”
On paper, it sounds like Google’s noise suppression in Meet, which limits background distractions like screaming children or crowded crowds. Many of us now use VoIP for voice calls, but it might make regular phone calls less noisy.
Simple ADB commands can enable Clear Calling without root. Once engaged, the toggle is under Sound & vibrations. One user couldn’t get it to stick. We’ll have to wait and see if it works.
