Netflix is testing Spatial Audio support for Apple's AirPods Pro and AirPods Max, according to a new report from iPhoneSoft.fr.

The site says it has learned from a 'very knowledgeable source' that the feature should be launched this spring.

This novelty has been in testing at Netflix since last December, according to a very knowledgeable source. This person works on the development part for the firm in the USA, but wishes to remain anonymous for obvious reasons. According to her, the streaming leader should launch this novelty by spring with initially a logically small catalog.

Spatial audio with dynamic head tracking aims to replicate a theater-like audio experience with AirPods, making it seem as though the sound is coming from all around you. Apple notes that "the sound field stays mapped to the device, and the voice stays with the actor or action on screen."

You can find instructions on how to enable spatial audio on your iPhone here.
