Bitstream audio pass-through, including Dolby Atmos, is headed to all Xbox One systems through the Blu-ray player in an upcoming update, Microsoft announced during its Windows 10 event.

According to Xbox’s Lead Engineer Mike Ybarra, bitstreaming and Atmos will not only work on recently released slimmer version of the console, but also on the standard Xbox One consoles. Moreover, both video games and movies will support it.

There is no telling exactly when the said update will roll out. For the time being, Microsoft has only provided fans with a ‘coming soon’ and nothing more. The new Windows 10 update, on the other hand, which is called the Creators Update is scheduled to go live sometime during spring 2017.

In relevant Xbox news, the digital version of Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is currently free on Xbox Store. The bundle contains Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. It is highly likely that the listing is an error on Microsoft’s part, but it is still recommended to claim the copies at the earliest. To read up more, head over to the post.
