NETFLIX is adding spatial audio support feature for iPhone and iPad users meaning you could get a more immersive viewing experience.
The streaming platform has started rolling out support for Apple’s spatial audio feature that works with compatible AirPods Pro and AirPods Max.

If you update your Netflix app now you might notice that you already have the feature enabled.
Spatial Audio is what Apple calls its AirPods’ immersive sound feature.
It works by using sensors and directional audio to track where your head is in relation to the device you’re listening to the content on.
It essentially creates an immersive sound experience for the content you’re watching.
This is good when you’re watching a film or TV as you can sense the direction of the sound as if you were in the film or TV series yourself.
To take advantage of Spatial Audio on AirPods when watching TV you’ll need to watch content from a platform which supports it.

You can control spatial audio from your Apple device’s control centre.
