The upcoming Xbox One Creators Update OS will take your gaming experience to a new level. Your console will blast crystal clear sounds that will fully immerse into the game you’re playing.

More specifically, if you’re an Xbox Insider, you have probably noticed there are many new audio output features in Settings. These new features are particularly useful for Xbox One developers, allowing you to add Dolby Atmos to your streaming media app and games. Thanks to full Dolby support, you will experience even more incredible audio on your console.
