When enabled, Adaptive Sound improves the sound quality of your phone’s speaker based on the microphone’s assessment on the acoustics near you. The microphone adjusts the sound equalizer settings based on your environment.

How does Adaptive Sound Work?

This feature typically comes in handy when using your device in a noisy environment as it automatically and subtly adjusts and optimizes the volume for seamless audio experience.

As the name suggests, adaptive sound utilizes the phone’s sensors and microphone to learn the type of environment you are in and adjust the sound accordingly. All necessary sound adjustments are made using automatic equalization (EQ) that cures any audio imperfections and accentuates sounds.

If you don’t find the need to use this feature, just repeat the same steps to head back to the Sound and vibration settings then disable the switch for Adaptive Sound.

And that’s how you activate and use the Android 13 Adaptive Sound feature on the new Google Pixel 7 smartphone.
