Clear Calling aims to improve call quality on Google Pixels, a feature still in beta on Android 13.
When Google formalized its Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro a few weeks ago, the Mountain View company revealed new features for Android 13, including Clear Calling. This option makes phone calls clearer by reducing background noise and improving voice quality. Although Clear Calling was announced alongside the new Pixels, the feature was not present in Android 13 when it launched. But there is a way to take advantage of it right now.

As Android Police reports, Clear Calling is available in Android 13 QPR1 Beta 3, which means that to use it, you’ll need to install the Beta on your Pixel 7 or Pixel 7 Pro. By doing so, you will have access to features before the general public. However, you will also have to deal with certain bugs, which could affect the use of your smartphone on a daily basis. And if the situation is really serious, you might lose all the data on your Pixel. If you choose to leave the beta program, Android will erase your device.
If you really want to try Clear Calling, and the other beta features, be aware of this. To install it, you must participate in the program Android Beta for Pixel. Sign in with your Google account, choose the device. Select the beta program, accept the terms and you’re done. You can install the beta via Settings > System updates like any update.

Then go to Settings > Sound and vibration > Clear Calling. Tap to activate the feature and see if it really helps improve your call quality. Note, insofar as this is only a beta, the whole is still perfectible.
Last point, this feature will not be exclusive to Pixel 7 for long. Google has announced that Clear Calling will be coming to Pixel 6 and 6 Pro with the December feature update.
