Xbox One and Windows 10 Will Get Dolby Atmos Support
Microsoft has announced that their Xbox One console and their operating system, Windows 10, will get Dolby Atmos support. Dolby Atmos is a revolutionary surround sound technology by Dolby Laboratories. It was released in 2012. The Dolby Atmos technology was initially implemented in movie theaters but then slowly it made its way into home theater systems. Dolby Atmos supported hardware is pretty expensive, but now, thanks to modern technology, it is supported by any pair of headphones.
Blizzard’s world-renowned multiplayer title, Overwatch, was the first game to support Dolby Atmos surround system. In Overwatch, Dolby Atmos works perfectly fine on any headphones.
Here’s what Xbox’s Mike Ybarra says about this:
“At Team Xbox, we are all gamers first, and bringing Dolby Atmos support to Xbox One and Windows 10 gaming next year will bring you even further inside the action and sound of your favorite titles. A big thank you to the team at Dolby for their partnership; we’re excited to share more with the Xbox community next year.”
So there you have it, guys. Xbox One and Windows 10 will receive full Dolby Atmos support next year. For more, keep it set on GeeksULTD.
