Citing an anonymous Netflix employee, iPhoneSoft According to Netflix, Netflix has been testing support for the audio function on iPhone and iPad since the end of last year.
This novelty has been tested on Netflix since last December, according to a very well-informed source. This person is working on the development part for the company in the US, but wants to remain anonymous for obvious reasons. According to her, the market leader in streaming should bring this novelty out by spring with a logically limited catalog at the beginning.
Spatial Audio uses dynamic head tracking technology to move the audio in 3D space based on how a user is positioned in relation to a device’s display. This is how Apple describes the function on its Support website.
Spatial audio with dynamic head tracking delivers a theater-like sound that surrounds you of the movie or video you are watching, making it appear like the sound is coming from all around you. The sound field remains associated with the device and the voice remains with the actor or the action on the screen.
There is currently no indication of when this feature will be available for Netflix on iPhone and iPad, but it is not believed that the streamer has much more work to do. Finally, Apple supports spatial audio directly in iOS and iPadOS.
Spatial Audio is available to AirPods Max and AirPods Pro users using an iPhone with iOS 14 or later or an iPad with iPadOS 14 or later.
