Netflix is bringing Spatial Audio compatibility to the iPhone and iPad with iOS 14, according to 9to5Mac. Apple Music added the function in June, and it uses directional audio filters to provide an immersive audio experience.
A Netflix official confirmed the rollout to 9to5Mac after the report was initially spotted on Reddit.
Users who want to listen to Spatial Audio on the Netflix app on their iPhone or iPad must have the AirPods Pro or AirPods Max, as well as iOS 14 or iPadOS 14. Spatial Audio can be turned on and off using a toggle in the Control Center.
Spatial Audio employs head-tracking to project sound as listeners move about, resulting in surround sound that feels as if it is coming from all sides and angles.
Other streaming applications, such as Disney+ and HBO Max, have already included the capability, but others, such as YouTube and Amazon Prime Video, have yet to do so.
