Spatial audio delivers an immersive sound experience that feels wide and open. Compared to a standard stereo wired headset, Spatial Audio provides better and deeper sound quality.
Head tracking technology allows sounds to move and change with the orientation of your head. The Pixel Buds Pro deliver theatre-like sound for movies and TV shows with spatial audio.
Supported Apps and Devices
For optimal results, use apps that support 5.1+ surround sound content to experience spatial audio. Platforms such as Netflix, YouTube and HBO Max provide suitable content for a better listening experience.
Spatial audio works with the Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 7, or Pixel 7 Pro — but not the Pixel Buds A-Series or Pixel A-Series phones.
Spatial Audio on the Pixel Buds Pro
Google announced that the Pixel Buds Pro will automatically receive the latest firmware version 4.30. Users can check their settings and toggle the feature on or off.
Google announced that the Spatial Audio feature will be rolling out starting today and will be available on all Pixel Buds Pro within the next week.
