will you guys be updating your plex app for dolby atmos etc


Recently the Xbox one and one s is undergoing a preview with the blu ray app to enable dolby atmos and Bitstream lossless audio being decoded by the receiver so I'm just wondering well you guys down at plex are working into enabling it somehow with the plex app because it sucks that it's the blu ray app only

    That's not quite how it works. Microsoft currently only has the decoders and pass through options enabled for their bluray app only. Until Microsoft releases those decoders and options to the 3rd party applications the Plex developers will be unable to access them for the Plex app. And once they do get released to 3rd Party Applications , there will most likely need to be a bit of internal testing to verify the new functions work correctly with the app before a full on release.

    But using those functionality is definitely something the developers are eager to bring to the platform.

    I reached out to Mike Ybarra from Microsoft on Twitter and he did say "eventually" Atmos will be available to all apps.

    Echoing this -- really hope we see Atmos support for Plex.
