With spatial audio, you'll hear the speakers in a room around you in 3D, which makes the experience more lifelike and human. These spatial cues also make it easier for your brain to track who is talking, making listening more enjoyable.
Spatial audio is currently available on iOS, and most recently Android 🎉 . To get the ideal spatial audio effect, you’ll need headphones (either wired or Bluetooth), although it will work with some other Bluetooth devices. If you are speaking in a room, others will still hear you with spatial audio even if you aren’t using headphones.
Due to a limitation in the Bluetooth protocol, speakers will not hear the spatial audio effect when wearing Bluetooth headphones (although wired headphones work fine). We are working with mobile OS providers to address this limitation.
If you prefer the old listening experience, you can turn spatial audio off anytime in your settings, but we think you're gonna love it!
