Xbox One starts testing support for Dolby Atmos audio

by John_A

If you both have a state-of-the-art surround sound setup and are in the Xbox One Preview Program, this week should sound pretty great. That’s because the update adding support for Dolby Atmos is rolling out to the Xbox One and Xbox One S, according to Microsoft’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb. It’s via Bitstream pass-through and was originally promised back in October. It isn’t clear when this will make its way to everyone’s console, however, so your dreams of marrying next-gen audio with your video format of choice might take a bit longer to materialize.

Calling all audio aficionados. Rolling out to Preview this week: Blu-ray Bitstream pass-through including Dolby Atmos support on Xbox One/S
