[Desktop][Developer] MacOS Monterey Spatial Audio Support for Spotify

Status: Good Suggestion

Briefly,

Implement Spatial Audio feature on macos platform like iOS.

 

Apple provides a simulated Spatial Audio feature in macOS Monterey for apps that add their plugin. Doing so enables Spotify for Mac listeners to take advantage of new Spatial Audio features on AirPod Pros and other supported headphones and requires little effort from development. You've closed like this idea before. However, we recommend that you read carefully, this is a different platform not iOS, this is MAC OS.

Would really love to see this come to macOS, it's the one thing that sometimes makes me switch over to Apple Music occasionally (I have AM for free but I prefer Spotify lol)

Yeah, completely agree. Would be nice to have this option. At the moment I'm using Spotify on my iPhone instead of my MacBook for listening. I keep switching devices now which is a little cumbersome.

Yes. I don't want to switch to Apple Music, but if you don't add spatial audio support I'll just have to. Please do it ASAP.

Hi guys, yes I think this is a very important feature. However, I recently switched to Apple Music, but due to a bug spatial audio was not working there either.

Spotify - don't make your users change platforms in pursuit of features that your platform should have!

Looking forward to this feature.

I'm also looking forward for this feature to bring it on Mac. Because every time I'm listening Spotify on Mac, it doesn't play spatial audio, makes me change back to playing on my iPhone, althought the devices connected each other.

So please bring it on, not only for Monterey, cause I'm still running Big Sur, Monterey still has some problem, I read.
