Apple Audio listeners on Android can now choose benefit of the Dolby Atmos spatial audio and lossless-high-quality streaming attributes that debuted on iOS, iPadOS, and macOS above a thirty day period ago. The most up-to-date update of the app for Android adds assistance for both of those characteristics.
Lossless ought to be obtainable rather universally on Android products. Apple features all the similar warnings as on iOS about it consuming “significantly much more facts.” Like on Apple’s possess platforms, Apple New music advises that external components like a DAC is essential if you want to stage up to hello-res lossless. (I’m curious whether this still applies on LG’s audiophile-pleasant phones, which have an fantastic built-in DAC, but have not experienced the probability to test but.)
Spatial audio guidance on the Android facet appears a much more constrained, on the other hand. Although the element will work with any headphones — just like on Iphone — Apple notes that your cellular phone by itself wants to guidance Dolby Atmos to help spatial audio. On my Pixel 4A 5G, there’s no selection for “Dolby Atmos” in the audio part of Apple Music’s configurations. Other colleagues with additional flagship-tier equipment have a toggle for Atmos there. So I guess that’s the easiest way to inform regardless of whether your telephone is able of spatial audio playback.
The beta variation of Apple Tunes for Android really tipped off that lossless and hi-res audio were being coming to the support even ahead of Apple built an formal announcement. But now the two are available on the regular Apple New music app for Android.
