What do you hear? 'Yanny' vs 'Laurel' dividing the internet

We only hear "Yanny" and can't convince ourselves that it's remotely close to "Laurel."

A new audio track on Twitter has many people divided - some hear "Yanny", others hear "Laurel".

"Yanny or Laurel?" This seemingly nonsensical question has triggered uproar on the internet as users try to decipher a robotic voice recording of a single indistinct word. Some people saw a gold and white striped dress in a now viral photo, while others saw the colors blue and black.

Remember that summer where we argued with everyone over the colour of a dress? Yanny is but a distant dream once you enter the elysian fields of Laurel.

Maybe the great "Yanny or Laurel" debate of 2018 will see both of these names feature more prominently in next year's rankings.

Having started off on Reddit, the audio clip has since made its way onto Instagram and Twitter, where users have fought their differences over the word.

Facebook closes 583 million fake accounts
Facebook said Tuesday it took down almost 2 million posts related to terrorist propaganda this year before users reported them. Zuckerberg noted that there is still room for improvement with Facebook's AI tools - noticeably flagging hate-speech content.

The "audio illusion" is leaving the Internet confused, no matter which side.

But I must know, what do you hear?

First of all, the clip is, according to Sanker "not prototypical" of either laurel or yanny.

Workplaces everywhere ground to a halt as everybody argued whether the robot in this recording says "Yanny" or "Laurel".

You could attempt to hear either on your computer by removing the high or low frequencies, Riecke said.
