Google’s high-end Pixel Buds Pro earbuds have received an eagerly-awaited update today, with the inclusion of one of their most anticipated features yet. The update has finally brought the much-anticipated Spatial Audio feature to the device, which allows users to experience immersive sound quality like never before.
Google Pixel Buds Pro users can now enjoy Spatial Audio on their earbuds with the latest firmware update, version 4.30. With the new update, users can enjoy high-quality sound that simulates a three-dimensional audio space, making them feel like they’re actually in the middle of the music. The Spatial Audio feature works by using built-in microphones to detect the position of the user’s head and adjusts the audio output accordingly. This creates the impression that the sound is coming from all around, including above and below.
The Pixel Buds Pro were launched in 2021 as Google’s flagship earbuds, and they come with many advanced features such as Adaptive Sound, which automatically adjusts the sound quality to suit the user’s surroundings. With the addition of Spatial Audio, the earbuds have taken the listening experience to the next level, making them one of the most sought-after high-end earbuds in the market.
To check for the update, users can navigate to the Pixel Buds app and look for the option to update firmware under the “Settings” menu. The update is being rolled out gradually and is expected to reach all devices within a week.
The Spatial Audio feature for the Google Pixel Buds Pro earbuds is not only highly anticipated but also well-supported. With firmware version 4.30, users will be able to enjoy content in 5.1+ surround sound on apps such as Netflix, YouTube, and HBO Max.
Google has stated that Spatial Audio is currently supported on the Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 7, and Pixel 7 Pro devices. However, it’s important to note that Pixel Buds A-Series and A-Series Pixel phones are not currently compatible with Spatial Audio.
It’s unclear whether Spatial Audio will work on non-Pixel devices with the latest version of the Google Pixel Buds Pro firmware. However, Google has stated that it is working to expand support to other Android devices in the future. Until then, the feature remains exclusive to the latest Pixel devices.
