Social audio application Clubhouse introduced spatial audio technology last week.

The feature works by assigning a specific spatial position to each speaker in a room, evenly distributing speakers for maximum intelligibility.

It then applies a HRTF (head-related transfer function) and additional audio processing for each incoming audio stream in order to make the audio for that speaker seem to the listener that it is coming from the specified position.

Spatial audio enables listeners to hear the people around them in 3D, making the experience more lifelike and easing the process of figuring out who is speaking.
