Netflix already supports 4K and HDR streaming on Xbox One, and now it's adding another feather to its hat: Dolby Atmos audio. The company has announced that Atmos audio is now supported on Xbox One for titles that support it, beginning with a new film called Okja.
To recap, Dolby Atmos is mean to make the soundscape in content more immersive. From Netflix:
Do note that the experience does require an Atmos-enabled home theater setup to work. You can also use Dolby Atmos for headphones via the Dolby Access app on the Xbox Store. Content is important, too; Netflix has outlined its initial lineup of Atmos titles will include:
- Okja (June 28)
- BLAME! (July 28)
- Death Note (August 25)
- Bright (December)
- Wheelman (2017)
Xbox One and Xbox One S are actually the first devices to support Netflix's Dolby Atmos streaming, though LG's 2017 OLED TVs will also support Atmos on Netflix when they arrive later this year. Just like 4K streaming, however, you will need to to be on Netflix's premium plan that offers Ultra HD support and streaming on up to 4 screens in order to stream Atmos audio.
