- With this, the sound quality should always remain the same, regardless of what content you are looking at.
- Android devices from Android 9 Pie will benefit from the change.
Everyone of us knows that: You watch an action film Netflix on and hardly an action scene flickers over it TV, we have to turn the sound down as quickly as possible, otherwise neighbors two streets away will complain about the volume. In dialogue it is exactly the other way around, if we do not turn up the volume, it is impossible to follow the conversation.
