Spatial Audio is the ability of the AirPods Pro and AirPods Max to position any audio source in the environment that surrounds us. A system that allows a very complete sound immersion in the content we are watching– something Netflix is aware of because according to a new rumor, it is considering supporting it.
Netflix follows Disney + or Apple TV + in supporting spatial audio
Thanks to the AirPods Pro and AirPods Max’s ability to distribute sounds around us, at least virtually, and to the built-in accelerometers, these headphones are capable of place the sound spotlight right where the screen is. Thus, if we rotate the head, the audio also rotates to stay in the same point, creating a quite impressive sense of specialty.
Apple TV +, Hulu and Disney + already offer support for this technology and Netflix could add it shortly. As reported by iPhoneSoft, some Netflix developers say they have been testing spatial audio support on the iPhone and iPad since December. We do not have more information on when, but we know that upon arrival he will do so with a “limited” catalog.
With Netflix’s pricing scheme, with three different types of subscriptions, adding spatial audio to a certain subscription could be yet another reason to encourage hiring a superior plan. Something that already happens, for example, with the support of Dolby Atmos.
Although for now we have few details, it seems clear that the company of the big N is working on this interesting feature. The truth is that it would be a most interesting improvement, in my personal opinion, once you try the spatial audio, you don’t want to go back.
