Dont be surprised if Netflix sounds nicer the next time you marathon a show on your Android phone. Netflix has updated its Android app to stream audio in xHE-AAC (Extended HE-AAC with MPEG-D DRC; yes, its a mouthful), assuring “studio-quality” sound thats also more constant– that is, you must enjoy it in more places.The new format provides a variable bitrate that can enhance audio quality when your connection permits, and scale back when youre on a flaky cellular link.
