On August 14, 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.
Now, the Google Pixel Fold can also support spatial audio through its built-in speakers. According to a post by Mishaal Rahman, former editor-in-chief of XDA-Developers, users shared a screenshot showing that the Pixel Fold’s built-in speakers already support spatial audio.
Google Pixel Fold users can experience built-in spatial audio by turning on the button next to the Phone Speaker option from the Settings > Beep & Vibration > Spatial Audio menu.
igeekphone query found that this option is also listed in the mobile phone use help on Google’s official website, which does seem to be officially supported.
Note that Google’s spatial audio support for built-in speakers is unique to the Pixel Fold, after all, only the folding screen can be hinged to change the relative position of the speakers, The Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro can only experience spatial audio through wired and wireless headphones.
