Chromebook Devices May Soon Offer Spatial Audio Feature

Google is working to bring the Spatial Audio feature to Chromebook devices, providing a more immersive listening experience.

The Spatial Audio feature was recently launched on Android devices, designed to adjust the sound transmitted to stereo headphones to add more depth as if you were listening to surround sound.

The effect is particularly noticeable when combined with head tracking, which adjusts the sound based on where you’re looking.

Spatial Audio makes a lot of sense on the Android system, given the ease of watching shows on your phone and the enhanced experience available through Android tablets.

However, ChromeOS has seen significant advancements, with the introduction of specialized tablets and productivity improvements for the Chromebook Plus series.

It now appears that Google is working to enhance entertainment options on Chromebook devices by introducing Spatial Audio in a new code change. As often, the feature will initially be locked behind an option in chrome://flags. Once enabled, a new option will appear on the sound page within the settings app.

The Spatial Audio feature is not yet ready and is not even available in the latest version of ChromeOS Canary, but 9to5Google has simulated how and where the switch will appear, as shown in the screenshot below.


Details on how Spatial Audio will work on Chromebook devices are very limited at this time. Based on how it operates on Android, we expect it to work with both Bluetooth and wired headphones to simulate more depth.
