What is Spatial Audio Support?
Apple released its Spatial Audio Support last year with iOS 14. The sound mode feature became quite a success. This feature will be the only available for AirPods Pro and now also in AirPods Max. Now Netflix is trying to add the Spatial Audio Support in its portals. If you do not know how this particular feature function and why Netflix requires it then continue reading.
The spatial audio is the feature that tracks the position of the user to offer movie theatre experience. It applies the directional audio filters and adjusts the frequencies when the ears receive the sound. Furthermore, spatial audio will be able to place sound anywhere in the area. It will create an immersive sound experience. It utilises the gyroscope and accelerometer in the AirPods Pro and iPhone. The feature will track the motion of the head of the user and also the device.
It can compare the motion data and then remap the sound field. Therefore it can stay with the device as the head position of the user moves. The trick it uses on people is by making the sound come from different directions. Hence, this will give a great feeling to the viewer as if they are sitting in a movie theatre.
Why Netflix has chosen Spatial Audio Support?
The streaming services like Apple TV+, Disney+, and Hulu have chosen the sound mode support already. Therefore Netflix is not the first streaming service to add Spatial Audio Support. This plan of Netflix will make it even more appealing to the users. The platform already has the excellent Dolby Atmos sound therefore it is good to see the company thinking about adding more features in its portal to enhance user experience.
If the Netflix users find this feature while viewing the content it will be better for them they can listen to crystal clear sound. The Apple AirPods Pro and AirPods Max users can have good experience from it. But we are not clear about when Netflix will release the feature. The streaming giant may even add the feature exclusively for Ultra HD plan. But they may also offer it for all their users.
Netflix’s plan to add spatial audio support is getting good reception from the users. Now many will benefit from it.
