Xbox One Adding Dolby Atmos Audio in Future Update
Both games and video content are supported.
Today's Windows 10 event brought some news about what gamers on PC can expect in the future, including native streaming and broadcasting, but the console side wasn't left out.
Yes bitstreaming and Atmos will work on all Xbox One products not just Xbox One S, for both video and games that support it. #Xbox— ♏️ike Ybarra (@XboxQwik) October 26, 2016
Xbox engineering lead Mike Ybarra clarified in a tweet that bitstreaming and Atmos will be available not only on Xbox One S, but also the launch model. He also confirmed that the new audio options will be available for both gaming and video content.
It's not exactly clear when the new audio option will be available on Xbox One, as Microsoft only said it's "coming soon." The new Windows 10 update, the Creators Update, is slated to arrive for free in spring 2017.
