Home » Microsoft Brings Dolby Digital Plus Audio Support to Windows 10 and Edge

Microsoft is signing big deals with big companies these days, this time Microsoft agreed to include Dolby Digital Plus audio support to Windows 10 and its browser, Microsoft Edge. With Dolby Digital support, audio experience of Windows 10 will be even better and users will enjoy the new quality of sound.

The release of Microsoft’s new browser, Edge, is approaching fast with the release of Windows 10 operating system this summer. The new browser is for now available for testing in Windows 10 Technical Preview, but many new features have yet to be added to the browser, and Microsoft is working hard to provide us with its best web browser ever.

Microsoft announced a lot of new stuff which will be integrated in the browser, and one of them is Dolby Audio support which will complement H.264 video with multi-channel audio support. Microsoft relies on the fact that Edge will be the first web browser to support Dolby Digital Plus and the websites will be able to use the new audio support with HTML5.

People are using browsers for listening to music every day, and addition of Dolby Digital support should improve the audio experience, and boost the popularity of the browser itself. Microsoft probably chose the best option, because Dolby is also a renowned company, and partnership between these two giants could be beneficial on multiple levels.

Microsoft is putting a lot of hopes in Edge, because it is the new opportunity to present a better web browser than Internet Explorer, and eventually succeed where IE failed. Just because Internet Explorer was often buggy and slow, and users were unsatisfied with it (they even mock Internet Explorer all over the internet), Microsoft has to deliver something spectacular and change users’ opinion about its browsers, otherwise the company could lose users of its browsers once for all.
