I have a suggestion for Samsung. I have a pair of Sony WH-1000XM5 headphones and they released an updated about two months ago that enabled head tracking for Android 13 devices. The way to obtain head tracking is through a Pixel phone, which currently do not not support Dolby Atmos 💀, a primal spacial audio format. I have a Tidal HiFi Plus subscription to use Dolby Atmos, and Galaxy phones support it, but only allow head tracking on their own ecosystem (Galaxy buds). I feel that Samsung should allow head tracking (or as Samsung calls it, "360 Audio") for all headphones compatible with the feature and not exclusively enable it for their own products. (Don't turn into Apple Samsung pls). Hopefully this feature comes soon! I ❤️ Galaxy phones btw!!

why lock devices out that support functions? I am not going to throw away my expensive headphones and buy into your ecosystem. I am just going to tell friends - "how crummy is samsung!"
