The Apple Music app for Android now has Lossless, Spatial Audio, etc. Also (even before this update) a feature not on iOS: Crossfade (Automatic, Manual, or Off). I hope it shows up on iOS. On Automatic, it seems to (almost) eliminate gaps between songs. Have not tried Manual yet.

The stupid reviewers keep getting their facts wrong (and they were not aware Crossfade was Android only): Spatial Audio does not depend on the Android device solely: for example, you can toggle it on, connect AirPods (or some other headset/speakers that support Dolby Atmos, and you will get Spatial Audio, whether or not the device can decode Dolby Atmos. It’s just not automatic as it is with AirPods, Beats, etc. on iOS.

What else? I have iOS 15 beta. Yes, there’s a control panel toggle for ‘Spatialize Stereo’ (maybe just for AirPods Pro/Max etc?). You can now have your podcasts and audiobooks in a sort of Spatial Audio. A bit weird, but maybe not entirely worthless.
