Device: Galaxy S21 Ultra Exynos 2100

OS: Android 12


I bought a pair of Sony Linkbuds S prior to the Ingress First Saturday event.

After going through the calibration procedure in Ingress and the Sony App.

And after enabling head tracking.

There has been no spacial, or 360 tracked audio

Tried the calibration procedure again, nothing.

Just the general stereo sound that is always there

Using my Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro, there is good spacial audio, with respect to my devices' orientation.

    Yesterday, I found a very hidden feature in the Sony headset app, which enabled spacial ausi in Ingress.

    I am unable to find this feature in the Sony headphones app. To be sure it was this that somehow fixed the issue

    @NianticBrian whenever you have Ingress open then plug in your Linkbuds, it does not automatically switch to spacial audio.

    As I can with the Galaxy Buds Pro

    Ingress has to be restarted after the linkbuds are in your ears, then do the calibration procedure every time.

    Seems silly.

    I don't need to do that with the Galaxy Buds Pro
