We continue to uncover more details about the arrival of high fidelity on Apple Music, which raises more and more questions about what we will be able to listen to depending on the device, speakers or headphones we listen to. The latest clue comes from MySmartPrice, which claims to know that Apple Music on Android does not support Dolby Atmos
It remains to be officially confirmed, although, according to the source, they seem fairly secure. This does not mean that Android users will not be able to enjoy high fidelity., that yes it will happen everywhere. But Dolby Atmos and spatial audio will be exclusive to Apple devices.
A question of royalties?
Especially Dolby charges money for every device that uses its technologies, what Apple does for its terminals. Maybe it will depend on each android mobile maker and if they pay these royalty fee
Remember: Hi-Fi is coming to Apple Music from next month. First in 20 million songs, and by the end of Apple, it will finally be extended to the entire catalog. And I wouldn’t be surprised to see new Apple accessories ready for such high sound quality for months to come.
