Google’s Pixel 8 may soon become the best smartphone for audiophiles

The Pixel 8 may have the potential to become the premiere smartphone for music listening as Google has confirmed the series will be receiving support for lossless USB audio.

This nugget of information comes from David Burke, VP of Engineering for Android, who recently took part in an AMA (Ask Me Anything) interview on the Google subreddit. In response to a user question, he said support for the “bit perfect audio” format has been added to the operating system with plans to fully implement it “in later releases.” The next step, according to Burke, is to have third-party “device makers and app developers” integrate support for lossless audio into their products. The latter will need to “adopt the new API” to enable this tech on their software.
