Home » Bitstream audio is coming to Xbox One

It seems that Bitstream audio is finally coming to the Xbox One console. Many owners of this console have been requesting this feature for quite of while, and their prayers have been listened, because Microsoft will soon release an update that will introduce Bitstream audio and Dolby Atmos support.

We remind you that before the Xbox One S was released, many have thought that this feature will be found on the mentioned console. However, that didn’t happen, as the new console is currently decoding audio onboard, which means that it can’t handle Dolby Atmos or the Ultra HD Blu-ray discs. In other words, it doesn’t sound as good as a dedicated 4K Blu-ray player that can do bitstream audio such as Samsung UBS-K8500 or Panasonic DMP-UB900.

Well, thanks to the new update, audio codecs such as Dolby True HD and DTS-HD 25 can now light up your cinema amplifier. In other words, the amp will do all the decoding and number-crunching which means that you will notice a big improvement to the audio of Blu-ray and 4K Blu-ray movies.

However, keep in mind that it will take a while until the update will be finally released for the Xbox One. As soon as the update will be released and we will be able to test out the codecs, we will give a verdict on how well these codecs work on the console.

Microsoft hasn’t specified when exactly the new update will be released for the Xbox One console, but there are rumors which say that this will happen sometime before the end of 2016. Once we have more information about Bitstream audio and Dolby Atmos for Xbox One we will let you know!

Are you watching movies on your Xbox One? Do you think that Bistream audio will bring significant improvements to the audio of Blu-ray and 4K Blu-ray movies?
