Hi everyone

Does "Spatial Audio" work with two Airpods Max connected at the same time to the Apple TV?
I feel that it doesn't. Also saw at the setting that "this is not supported when sharing audio".
We have tried with the Apple TV+ App, Infuse and Netflix. It doesn't seem to have Spatial Audio active.
Am I doing something wrong or "Spatial Audio" only works with one Airpod connected?

Thanks

True but I didn’t know that conecting two Airpods is called sharing. I thought sharing is a separate options that actually share the sound from one Airpod to the other instead of coming directly from the Apple TV.
Strange… hope Apple will make Spatial Audio available to two connected Airpods.

I think that shared audio over Bluetooth is the same signal going to two devices, not two independent signals. Therefore, both AirPods get the same waveforms, which makes spatial audio impossible.
