The portal is set to become an even more useful tool for marketers, researchers, and anybody else interested in learning how people use the internet as a result of its additional features and enhanced user experience.
Google Pixel Buds Pro now feature spatial audio that is immersive
As of today, Google’s Pixel Buds Pro wireless earbuds will enable spatial audio, a function that creates a 3D audio environment to make listening more immersive. Some expensive earphones, like Apple’s AirPods Pro, already feature spatial audio.
Users of Pixel Buds Pro will be able to enjoy a more cinematic audio experience while viewing movies and TV shows thanks to the new functionality, which will also improve music and podcast listening. By mimicking the sensation of surround sound, spatial audio gives the impression that sound is emanating from various angles and distances.
Users of Pixel Buds Pro must upgrade their earphones’ firmware and enable the function in the Pixel Buds app in order to access Spatial Audio. The functionality is compatible with any media that has been mixed in Dolby Atmos, a surround sound format that is increasingly being used in movies and television programmes.
Overall, the Pixel Buds Pro’s addition of Spatial Audio is a good improvement that puts the earphones on level with other premium wireless earbuds. Users of the Pixel Buds Pro may now enjoy a more immersive and interesting listening experience thanks to Spatial Audio, which is crucial for individuals who use their earphones for entertainment.
