Do not be shocked if Netflix sounds better the next time you marathon a program on your Android phone. Netflix has upgraded its Android app to stream audio in xHE-AAC (Prolonged HE-AAC with MPEG-D DRC; yes, it’s a mouthful), assuring “studio-quality” noise that’s likewise more constant– that is, you ought to enjoy it in more locations.
The brand-new format provides a variable bitrate that can enhance audio quality when your connection permits, and downsize when you’re on a flaky cellular link. Volume management, on the other hand, avoids disconcerting volume modifications (consider leaping from an action film to a peaceful drama) and makes up for loud environments without the threat of clipping the loudest noises. You might listen on your phone’s speakers without having a hard time to comprehend discussion.
