2023 has finally arrived and Google has already started coming out with new updates for their Pixel handsets, which includes the much awaited Android security patch that has been awaited for a long time and the company chose the time of New Year to surprise their users with this update.
Google has made sure to bring out the updates in a steady and phased manner in Pixel devices in the next few weeks that will run on Android 13 for which users will be receiving notifications as and when the OTA update is available to be used for Pixel smartphones that are eligible to go through it.
As of now, Spatial Audio update has been rolled out on Android 13 Pixel devices as this update offers surround sound on Pixel smartphones with any of the supported accessories where there are a couple of other general fixes, along with Spatial audio.
Spatial Audio update is now available on Google Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 7, and Pixel 7 Pro but it had already been spotted in the Android 13 QPR1 beta update where it captures audio signals and apply directorial filters so as to create an immersive landscape.
What’s more, Google has made plans to roll out Spatial Audio for Google Pixel Buds Pro as well as it wants to use head tracking for the enabling process in the earbuds, while the update itself is supported by only those devices that are compatible with Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) audio.
