What you need to know
- Netflix is bringing 'studio-quality' audio to Android devices with its latest update.
- The update adds support for the xHE-AAC (Extended HE-AAC with MPEG-D DRC) codec to compatible Android phones.
- Since the new format supports loudness management, all titles that you watch will play at a consistent volume.
One of the main advantages of the new codec is its ability to adapt to variable cellular connections. This means you can enjoy studio-quality audio when the network conditions are optimal, and minimized rebuffers when you have poor reception or the network is congested.
The xHE-AAC codec also supports loudness management, making it possible for all titles to play at a consistent volume. Once you set the volume at your preferred level, you will no longer have to keep changing it when you switch from one title to another.
There are so many great Android phones to buy, so it can be tough to know which one to get. These are the best of the best at each price point.
