Netflix is ​​adding SECRET code that will massively improve your TV — but there’s a catch

NETFLIX added a special audio feature that TV and movie fans will love.

It’s called spatial audio, and it creates a 3D soundscape that makes soundtracks and noise much more immersive.

The concept is hard to imagine until you hear it, but it’s a great feature and it’s completely free Netflix subscribers.

And it’s now available in two different forms – accessed using different methods.

“Netflix Spatial Audio helps bring the cinematic experience of immersive audio to any stereo,” Netflix said.

“So the work that the creators do to pull you into the story happens no matter what device you use to watch Netflix.”

Netflix said spatial audio rolled out “across the catalog” late last week.

Unfortunately, the catch is that it only works with content that supports audio technology.

To find it, just type the words “spatial audio” into the app’s search bar.

Some of Netflix’s biggest franchises support the new audio technology, including Stranger Things and The Witcher.

Spatial audio typically requires a set of speakers around you (including above you).

However, it is possible to create a spatial audio effect with stereo speakers.

So you can enjoy the new feature even if you don’t have an excellent speaker setup.

Of course, you’ll get a much better experience if you have more impressive speakers.

“Often the subtlety of the sound goes unnoticed, but it can profoundly affect the atmosphere of a scene and fundamentally change the audience’s reaction,” Netflix explained.

“Some of the most iconic moments in television and film are defined by the immersive moments they create through sound.

“Would the final fight scene in The Adam Project be so electrifying without its excellent sound design?

“Would Eddie Munson’s epic guitar scene in Stranger Things 4 bring the ǝpᴉsdn uʍop to life the same way?”

Two systems

The new version of Spatial Audio comes courtesy of Sennheiser technology and works on all devices.

But Netflix also supports Apple Spatial Audio if you have one of the following devices and headphones.

Compatible Apple devices:

  • Phone 7 and later with iOS 15.1 or later
  • iPad Air 3rd generation and later with iPadOS 15.1 or later
  • iPad mini 5th generation and later with iPadOS 15.1 or later
  • iPad Pro 3rd generation and later with iPadOS 15.1 or later
  • Apple TV 4K and later with tvOS 15 or later

Compatible Apple headphones:

  • 3rd Gen Airpods
  • Airpods Pro
  • Airpods max
  • Beats Fit Pro

To access Apple Spatial Audio, you need to press the Spatial Audio settings button in the volume controls on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.

This is a different feature than Sennheiser Spatial Audio and even supports head tracking to adjust the sound based on your movements.
