Netflix is rolling out support for Spatial Audio to the iPhone and iPad on iOS 14, 9to5Mac reports. Apple introduced the feature to its Apple Music in June and it brings an immersive audio experience using directional audio filters.
The story was first spotted on Reddit before a Netflix spokesperson confirmed the rollout to 9to5Mac. To enjoy Spatial Audio on the Netflix app on the iPhone or iPad, users will need to have the AirPods Pro or AirPods Max and also have iOS 14 or iPadOS 14 installed. Spatial Audio can be enabled by using a toggle that is available in the Control Center.
Spatial Audio works by using head-tracking to project sound as the listeners move around, this enables surround audio making it feel like the sound is coming from all corners and angles. Other streaming apps like Disney+ and HBO Max already support the feature but there are still others like YouTube and Amazon Prime Video that is yet to adopt it.
The feature will be rolling out to Netflix applications on the iPhone and iPad in the coming weeks, users will have to update their app to get it.
