Our first review of the AirPods Pro 2 suggests that this feature actually works wonders on an already great-sounding pair of earbuds. Google first hinted at spatial audio as a feature of the Pixel Buds Pro. The feature is now available on Pixel 6 and 6 Pro on all headphones with the latest Android 13 beta. However, it is reportedly not very effective.
One of the main talking points at the launch of Apple’s AirPods Pro 2 was a feature called Spatial Audio. Spatial Audio for Apple’s iPhone 14 Series and AirPods Pro 2 The feature basically works by using the front-facing camera and FaceID dot matrix to scan the AirPods you’ve owned in the year and calibrate them to give you the best audio experience. To do.
After installing the new Android 13 QPR1 update, you’ll see a new “Spatial Audio” toggle in the settings for all Bluetooth headsets, not just Pixel Buds Pro. Android apps must be updated to take advantage of new APIs in Android 13, such as the Spatial Audio API. For this reason, it is not possible to actually test this feature in a realistic environment at this time.
The dynamics of the sound changes as you move, making it almost as if you were listening to the real thing. Think of it as moving audio in 3D, or just 3D audio. Google has been working hard to bring 3D audio to Android via the new “Spatializer” API introduced in Android 13. Earlier this year, when the Pixel Buds Pro was announced, Google said a future update would bring spatial audio support.
However, with the arrival of Android 13 on new devices in the coming months, app developers will have to integrate his Spatial Audio API into their apps. Spatial audio creates a digital soundstage around you, giving every element of your soundtrack a specific place, whether it’s music, video, or games. This allows users to get more out of the running soundtrack.
