Would you use an iPhone feature that allows you to hear what your friends say about you when you walk away from the table?
One woman did — and says it’s a “wonderful little hack.”
TikTok user Michelle Guo @woahguo shared her experience activating the hidden feature.
“Thinking about the time I turned on ‘live listen’ on my iPhone & left my phone on the table & walked away with my AirPods in so that I could listen to what everyone said without me being in the room,” she wrote in a video.
Live Listen was introduced in 2014 as a way for iPhone users with hearing aids to hear others more easily in noisy environments.
The setting allows an iPhone or iPad to act as a microphone, sending sound to the hearing aids.
Originally, it only worked with iPhone-compatible hearing aids but has since expanded to AirPods.
That’s how Guo was able to use it in a room with her friends.
Guo learned of the setting from the Apple website, she told the Daily Dot.
