Google launched the Pixel Fold folding screen phone in May this year, which supports spatial audio through wired and wireless headphones for a more immersive audio experience.
And now, Google Pixel Fold can also support spatial audio through built-in speakers. According to a post by former XDA-Developers editor-in-chief Mishaal Rahman, a user shared a screenshot showing that the Pixel Fold’s built-in speakers already support spatial audio.
Google Pixel Fold users can experience the built-in spatial audio by going to the Settings > Sounds and Vibration > Spatial Audio menu and turning on the button next to the Phone Speaker option.
It is found that this option is also listed in the phone help on Google’s official website, and it seems that it is indeed officially supported.
Note that Google’s spatial audio support for built-in speakers is unique to Pixel Fold. After all, only the folding screen can change the relative position of the speakers through the hinge, while Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro can only be wired and Experience spatial audio with wireless headphones.
