Google Pixel Buds App Reveals Incoming Spatial Audio With Head Tracking Update For The Buds Pro

The last update for Pixel Buds Pro arrived in October last year. Last month, Google released native support for spatial audio for the Pixel 6 and 7 series smartphones. Now, 9to5Google has spotted the update for the search giant’s TWS earphones in the latest version of the Google Pixel Buds app. Google has previously confirmed that the Pixel Buds Pro will support spatial audio. 

Spatial Audio offers a 360-degree surround sound experience with a broader field of clear and natural sound. Additionally, head tracking support makes spatial audio more responsive to the user’s movements. 

Coming to the 9to5’s report, the publication discovered new settings page for spatial audio in the Google Pixel Buds app. On Pixel phones, the option is located on the earphone’s ‘Device Details’ page. Users will be able to easily enable or disable both the spatial audio and head tracking features. Google has included a demo video into the app’s settings above the two toggles to preview what enabling the feature sounds like. This will allow users to decide whether spatial audio and head tracking features are right for them.

Additionally, a disclaimer at the bottom of the menu reveals that the feature only works with supported content. The spatial audio and head-tracking feature could be made available via a firmware update for the Pixel Buds Pro. It is tipped to arrive as a part of the Pixel Buds Pro Feature Drop update sometime next month. 

To recall, the Pixel Buds Pro debuted in May last year. They come with ANC, transparency mode, an 11mm driver, and 11 hours of battery life.
