What Is Dolby Atmos?
Dolby Atmos is a top-notch digital sound surrounding technology used in Cinema Halls. It was introduced back in mid-2012 and is one of the best technology to experience sound like the way in which you have never experienced them. Even the minute detail of every single sound is enhanced and equalized with the help of the Dolby Atmos system. The main objective of Dolby Atmos is to spread the sound in all directions possible and get the best digital surrounded sound feel.
As mentioned earlier, It was first introduced in big Cinema Theatres and places where fine audio is of great importance. A theatre in California was the first Cinema Hall to be equipped with the so-called “Digital Surrounded” Dolby Atmos System. In this system, more than 50+ speakers and woofers are placed in a different direction to make you feel that you are in the place where you see the movie.
After a couple of years, Technology change a lot and Dolby Atmos Surrounding System was introduced in Mobile Devices running Android. Lenovo A7000 was the first device to get Dolby Atmos apk pre-installed. Later on, a lot of Android Developers ported this feature to many other supported devices and now it is available for almost all major Android Devices which meets the minimum requirements mentioned below.
The best part about this is that it works with both Rooted as well as Non-Rooted devices. Even if you are having a Non-rooted device, you can enjoy the Dolby Surrounding system in your Android device without any hassle.
