Xbox Wire revealed that Dolby Vision video streaming is coming to Xbox One S and Xbox One X consoles in the form of a preview system update 1810. The new update began rolling out on Wednesday. Dolby Vision is mostly made for 4K TVs because it’s a high dynamic range format. It provides improved contrast, brightness, and color-supported TVs by optimizing the image frame by frame. However, the traditional HDR format locks in a setting, and the setting remains that way. It is more like “set and forget.” Bug streaming services such as Netflix, iTunes, Vudu, and Amazon Prime Video support this traditional HDR setting. Xbox One S and Xbox One X will support Dolby’s HDR format from July 11, 2018.

Xbox One consoles already support Dolby Atmos which is, so far, the best one available and it does its job well. It literally surrounds the users with sound. Adding the new Dolby Vision to that takes the whole experience to an entirely new level. It gives users looking to use their home console as a multimedia center a new tantalizing option. Sony’s PS4 consoles are yet to jump on the format.

However, the system update is currently available only to those with the Xbox Insiders preview program. It will be available to those users in the coming weeks. To get the Dolby Vision working properly and fully, the users need a Dolby Vision compatible TV in addition to a Premium Netflix subscription. As of now, the Dolby Vision will not support 4K discs.

The new update will also support Xbox Avatars on the dashboard and improved accessibility options and will provide support for Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, Swedish and Dutch languages in Narrator. An Australian version of English too will be supported by the new update soon.
