Dolby, last September, announced that the Xbox Series S and Series X will get support for Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision HDR. Today, the company has rolled out the feature on the Xbox Series X and S gaming consoles for testers who are a part of the Xbox Insider’s Alpha Ring group.

Microsoft, as per a report by The Verge, says the feature will bring ‘brighter highlights, sharper contrast, and more vibrant colours’ while playing various games on the two gaming consoles on a Dolby Vision-compatible TV. The company further says that the update will offer clarity in light and dark scenes.

Dolby Vision games automatically map to any display with Dolby Vision, you’re always seeing the best possible picture available,” the company says. “This means … no more sliders to adjust your picture settings.” However, it advises that testers might need to update their TV’s firmware to take full advantage of the technology.
