The content compatible with Spatial Audio is landing on Netflix when we use the application from our iPhone or iPad. A deployment that may still take several days to complete, but that will allow us to enjoy series and movies in a much more complete way than until now.
Apple defines spatial audio as a system capable of “reproducing sounds anywhere in virtual space, creating an immersive experience.” Now, this experience will be coming to more and more Netflix content.
To enjoy this new playback system we must use AirPods Pro or AirPods Max. At the same time, we need to use the Netflix app on our iPhone or iPad, as the web version of the service does not yet offer this audio format. Once playing compatible content we simply go to the Control Center and activate Spatial Audio.
Keep in mind that this feature is just starting its launch, so it may take several days until we see it operational. Let’s also note that the content to be played must be adapted to this system, so once it is fully deployed not all series or movies will offer it. Fortunately in iOS 15, the system offers us the possibility of converting any audio in Spatial Audio, something that will be compatible with the Netflix app and that, overnight, will allow us to enjoy the entire catalog in this format.
