Pixel Buds Pro owners might soon get Head Tracking in an upcoming update
The more special part about this new settings page is that it includes a demo video with nature sounds and orchestral music coming from multiple directions. Google has probably included this to help Pixel Buds Pro owners determine the difference between Spatial Audio and Head Tracking being turned on or off. That way if you don’t particularly enjoy how things sound, you can just revert back to regular stereo audio.
Keep in mind that you need to have a Pixel 6/6 Pro or a Pixel 7/7 Pro in order to experience Spatial Audio, and presumably the upcoming “Head Tracking” feature. As it stands for now, Google is yet to say anything about releasing these features on its more affordable Pixel “a” series, which are arguably some of the best budget phones on the market.
Given how finished the implementation of Head Tracking seems to be, it wouldn’t be too far-fetched to expect the feature sometime in the near future. It might arrive with the upcoming Pixel Feature Drop set to arrive sometime in March.
