Microsoft also made some announcements concerning the Xbox during its event today in New York City. One of the biggest announcements was that Dolby Atmos audio support will be added to the Xbox One S and Xbox One with the Creators Update that was also announced today. This will address one of the complaints that particularly Xbox One S owners have had so they will certainly be happy that support for Dolby Atmos is finally coming to their console.

The Xbox One and Xbox One S have so far been unable to output to a Dolby Atmos AV receiver even though the former is capable of playing Blu-rays and the latter is actually the first console to feature a 4K UHD Blu-ray player. Both formats can feature a Dolby Atmos soundtrack but Xbox owners have not been able to tap into it.

The update that has been announced today will finally change things for Xbox One and Xbox One S owners, enabling owners to use their consoles as powerful home media devices aside from using them to play games. Dolby Atmos support for the Xbox will arrive with the Windows 10 Creators Update that’s going to be released in spring next year.

In order to take advantage of Dolby Atmos audio, console owners will need to have an Atmos speaker setup, that’s an absolute necessity because without a compatible speaker setup there’s no use for Atmos support.
