The rollout began in the US on Thursday. Netflix said that spatial audio was compatible with all devices, all streaming plans, and does not require surround sound speakers or home theatre equipment. The company said that Netflix spatial audio will help to translate the cinematic experience of immerse audio to any stereo, so the work creators can do to bring you into the story happens no matter what device you use to watch Netflix.

While there is a limited selection of content to support the new audio experience, users can browse the available content by searching for spatial audio in the search bar. Early choices for the spatial audio experience include Red Notice, the recently released fourth season of Stranger Things, and The Witcher. Spatial audio is less noticeable and can be underwhelming when listening with standard laptop or TV speakers.
