At the Windows 10 event held on October 26, Microsoft revealed several features regarding the Windows 10 Creators Update, including the newly added support for Dolby Atmos on Xbox One. The Dolby Atmos audio testing app has made it to Windows Store, adding support fir PCs, tablets and smartphones with Windows 10, and of course, Xbox One.
What is Dolby Atmos?
The technology is developed by Dolby Laboratories that is based on sound objects, generally operated in cinemas, to provide a surround sound system “wraparound” during playback of movies, video or music.
It is a sound format used to deliver a supported soundtrack to the standard surround speakers placed either in a walled area of your house or on the ceilings of an open boundary. Dolby Atmos is devised to provide extra height to the soundscape, making the experience more riveting and multidimensional. However, you are going to need a Dolby Atmos-certified amplifier or AV receiver for a fuller experience.
The Dolby Atmos technology has a huge potential if we talk about future upgrades. Given the surround sound feature, if developers are considering adding extra height channels in the near future, gamers will not only hear enemies surging from the front, sides or behind, but also above their heads.
Experience up to 7.1 channels of personal surround sound from any pair of headphones from an A / V receiver, game headset, and PC That features Dolby Headphone.
You can get the Dolby Atmos app from the Windows Store.
