Microsoft is adding another great feature to Xbox One ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

There’s a new test firmware update for Xbox One that is already available through Alpha Skip Ahead build, which is a part of Xbox Preview program. The update in question enables another exciting new feature, which is capable of so-called ‘upmixing’ – i.e. processing – of the initial audio output of Xbox One games into Dolby Atmos for home theatres.

This is somewhat close to ‘upscaling’ of the video output of consoles to match the 4K resolution of TVs. The feature of upmixing is actually designed by Dolby, so this is a nice and – what really matters – official addition to the list of features available on Xbox One. It goes without saying that the result of using this feature will not be a clear Dolby Atmos sound, but the expertise and experience of the company in audio is nonetheless going to greatly add to the existing sound quality on Xbox One consoles. It is worth noting that Xbox One has been supporting pure Dolby Atmos since 2017, but only in selected games whose developers decided to enable it.

In case you lack the knowledge regarding Dolby Atmos technology, we highly advise you to hit this link and let Wikipedia do its educational thing. In short, Dolby Atmos is yet another surround sound feature, which offers dynamic immersive sound for cinemas and home theatres. And if you prefer playing video games with a fully functional home theatre, this feature for Xbox One is going to greatly enrich your gaming experience.
