Watching Netflix via Android?

To the streaming giant in the ranks for you.

Netflix has announced that it will update the app to Android, and improve the audio quality, along with reducing buffering (storage time), which will improve the continuous video.

Audio enhancement is thanks to the use of xHE-AAC encoding, which will improve audio quality in a noisy environment.

"The change will improve the quality in a noisy environment, and will be adapted to cellular connections, with the maximum audio quality, the quality will be the same as that of a studio," wrote a Netflix blog.

The new encoding is available in Android 9 and higher versions, so to enjoy the improvement, you need to make sure your smartphone is running at least version 9.

The new-old encoding uses metadata to solve some of the most common audio issues when viewing mobile devices.

Netflix explains that this is often a problem of loud background noise, combined with weak speakers on a smartphone, which makes it difficult to listen to content at high volume.

Netflix claims the new coding offers better dynamic range control, and it reduces the difference between the noisy and quiet parts of the show.



Netflix further clarified that the new encoding works better with inconsistent internet speeds.

Netflix said a user review has proven the benefits of encoding, and the volume change between segments in the show, drops significantly.

In the future, Netflix hopes to add the encoding to more devices, including the iPhone that supports encoding since 2019, with the release of iOS 13. The update for Android devices is available now.
