Apple Music brings spatial audio, lossless streaming to Android

Published

on

 

There is a piece of good news for Apple Music listeners on Android; as they can now take full advantage of the Dolby Atmos spatial audio and lossless-quality streaming features that debuted on iOS, iPadOS, and macOS over a month ago.

 

According to The Verge, a new app update for Android will be adding support for both features.

 

Apple has included all the same warnings as on iOS about it consuming “significantly more data.”

 

Similar to its own platforms.

 

Apple Music advises that external hardware like a DAC is required if you want to step up to hi-res lossless.

 

 

Spatial audio support on Android seems to be on the limited side.

 

Although the feature works with any headphones — just like on iPhone, Apple notes that your phone itself needs to support Dolby Atmos to enable spatial audio.

 

The beta version of Apple Music for Android had actually tipped off that lossless and hi-res audio was coming to the service even before Apple made an official announcement.

Biafra, officially the Republic of Biafra, was a secessionist state in West Africa that separated from Nigeria and existed from May 1967 to January 1970.

Over the years, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have continued to advocate for the secession of the Igbo-populated Southeast zone, by demanding a referendum from the federal government and going public with calls for the creation of a sovereign Biafra nation.

Why I Want To Be Next APC National Chairman – Ali Modu Sheriff

Published

on

A former Governor of Borno State, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, has revealed why he wants to become the next national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Naija News reports that the Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee led by Yobe State Governor Mai Mala Buni is yet to fix a date for the national convention where new National Working Committee (NWC) members would be elected.

Speaking on Wednesday in Abakaliki, when he visited Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi state, Sheriff said he wants to unite the party if allowed to be the APC national chairman.



He stated that as a former national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), he has all the experience needed to succeed.

The former governor disclosed that he was in the state to consult with the governor because of his influence in the South East and among his colleagues.

Sheriff commended Umahi for his “giant strides” across all sectors in the state and urged him to keep up the good work.

He added that the APC is proud of his achievements in the state, adding that the two strongest states in the Southeast are APC states.

“You are very influential in APC and your fellow governors and leaders across the country rate you highly for your infrastructural strides, among other achievements.

“The only two strongest states in Southeastern Nigeria are APC states. With what I have seen, I can now tell people to visit Ebonyi State, this is because you have made APC governors proud,” he said.

Speaking further, Sheriff said the next president can come from any part of the country, adding that Buhari should be supported to complete his tenure.

“It is, however, not the time to talk about the next president because an incumbent is still in office and should be supported to accomplish his goals,” he said.
