Spatial audio is rolling out across the Netflix catalog starting today. To experience it for yourself, simply type “spatial audio” into the search bar and select a show or film that supports it in the search results.

One of the first titles to use Ambeo is season four of Stranger Things. Others include Red Notice, The Witcher, as well as the upcoming live-action Resident Evil series.

This magical combination of sight and sound will bring viewers closer to the story, and we’re excited to add this capability to other features we support like 4K, HDR, Dolby Atmos, and Netflix Calibrated Mode.

Netflix spatial audio helps to translate the cinematic experience of immersive audio to any stereo, so the work creators do to bring you into the story happens no matter what device you use to watch Netflix.

Netflix has made Spatial audio the default setting for two-channel setups for all supported titles.
