- A recently introduced feature for iPhones and AirPods called “Live Listen” is going viral.
- It enables a person to use an iPhone’s microphone to listen in to conversations wirelessly through AirPods.
- Some people are creeped out by the feature, suggesting it could be used to spy, but it was originally intended to help people with hearing aids or hearing loss to clearly hear conversations in crowded environments.
There are a lot of cool, hidden features buried inside your iPhone’s settings menu.
There’s a new tip that’s going viral on Twitter that allows you to use your iPhone as a microphone, and listen to what it records through your wireless AirPods headphones, even if you’re far away.
One tweet describing the feature, “Live Listen,” has been retweeted over 47,000 times.
