Nokia Invents Groundbreaking 'Immersive' Phone Call Technology for Future

Nokia's CEO, Pekka Lundmark, has made what's being touted as the world's first 'immersive' phone call. This groundbreaking call utilized a new Nokia-invented technology that enhances the call quality with immersive audio and video, providing a three-dimensional sound experience that makes interactions feel more life-like.

The call was enabled by the new Immersive Voice and Audio Services (IVAS) codec technology which is part of the upcoming 5G Advanced standard. The IVAS codec allows consumers to hear sound spatially in real-time instead of today’s monophonic smartphone voice call experience. Lundmark demonstrated the distinctive acoustic dimensions that can be experienced with the new IVAS technology to Lindström while calling him from Nokia’s campus in Espoo.

The IVAS codec allows consumers to hear 3D spatial sound in real-time instead of today’s monophonic smartphone voice call experience. Nokia is a leading contributor to the IVAS codec which is part of the upcoming 5G Advanced standard.

Innovation in immersive spatial communications also paves the way towards enhanced extended reality and metaverse applications.

This future technology is seen as a significant step in the evolution of phone calls, offering a massive improvement in call quality even on regular smartphones with 5G connectivity. It's an exciting development that could change how we experience voice calls in the future.

The immersive phone call technology developed by Nokia is not yet available to the public. It's part of the upcoming 5G Advanced standard and Nokia intends to secure licensing opportunities to ensure wider availability. However, it is expected that this technology will take several years to become readily available to the general public. So, it seems we'll have to wait a bit longer to experience this innovative communication advancement.
