Samsung announced last week that it’s going to release a new software update for the Galaxy Bud 2 Pro that will bring 360 Degree Audio Recording. Users will be able to capture immersive sound for the video content they create using a compatible Galaxy phone.
The company had said that it would be rolling out this update progressively. We can now confirm the rollout of this update. We’ve received it on one of our devices already. It’s only a matter of time before it’s made available to all users across the globe.
Record 360 degree audio with your Galaxy Buds 2 Pro now
Samsung is rolling out firmware version R510XXU0AWA5 for the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro. The changelog confirms that this new feature is included. Once your earbuds are updated, record a video using the Samsung Camera app, and your earbuds will be able to capture immersive 360 degree audio. This feature is only supported on the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and the Galaxy Z Flip 4. The devices must be running One UI 5.0. Future devices will support this feature as well.
A new “Connected device diagnostics” option has also been added through this software update. It lets you see if every feature of your Galaxy Buds is performing as it should be by letting you test each feature separately. The Samsung Members and the Galaxy Wearable app must be updated to their latest versions for this feature to work.
Samsung also announced last week that it would release an update for the Galaxy Watch that would let users zoom the camera on their connected Galaxy phone through the smartwatch. That update has also started rolling out today.
