With the January 2023 update, the Google Pixel now supports spatial audio, and head tracking will follow soon.



The January 2023 update for Pixel phones, which also contains the January 2023 Android security patch, has begun to be distributed by Google. Over the upcoming weeks, the update will be gradually given out to Pixel smartphones running Android 13 devices. When the OTA update becomes accessible for compatible Pixel smartphones, users will receive a notice. With the help of any approved accessories, the Pixel phones can now provide surround sound thanks to this update's addition of Spatial Audio compatibility. This version also contains a few other general fixes.

Google said on Wednesday that the January 2023 update for Pixel smartphones has started to be distributed. The Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 7, and Pixel 7 Pro now support spatial audio thanks to this update. The Android 13 QPR1 beta version had this functionality, which had previously been discovered. The goal of this technique is to generate an immersive soundscape by capturing audio signals and using directional filters. The business has disclosed that it will soon release an upgrade for the Pixel Buds Pro that would allow head tracking and spatial audio capabilities.

According to reports, Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) audio-enabled devices are the only ones that can offer spatial audio. Google has addressed a problem that was "preventing some Bluetooth Low Energy devices or accessories from pairing or reconnecting" with this version. Additionally, a problem that prevented audio from playing over some headphones has been fixed.

On the Pixel 6a and Pixel 7, the January 2023 update also makes incremental improvements to fingerprint recognition and response speeds. The smartphone was also forced to switch to landscape mode while held in portrait mode until the bug was corrected.

With this update, there have also been a few more fixes for the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. Due to the built-in camera fix, zoomed-in images won't seem distorted or damaged anymore. Additionally, a problem that was preventing the device from waking up after being switched on has been fixed.
