This week, Dolby Laboratories, Inc., the leader in immersive audio and video entertainment that Dolby Atmos will now be supported on the recently launched Echo Studio and Amazon Music HD. Dolby Atmos allows you to discover hidden details and subtleties with unparalleled clarity in audio tracks. Now with Echo Studio, a high-fidelity smart speaker with 3D audio and Alexa, listening to music in Dolby Atmos will provide every detail as it was meant to be heard and will give a more immersive audio experience.
A defining characteristic of Echo Studio is its ability to fill a room with powerful immersive audio through a compact form factor, an experience unheard of from a smart speaker. Dolby worked with Amazon to create this music listening experience, which pushes past the boundaries of the mono and stereo solutions found in most smart speakers today.
A growing library of tracks in Dolby Atmos are available to experience on Echo Studio through the recently announced Amazon Music HD plan. Echo Studio users can also easily turn their living room into a home theater by simply pairing one or two Echo Studio devices together wirelessly with a Fire TV Stick 4K or Fire TV Cube to experience movies and TV shows in Dolby Atmos, an industry first.
What music is available in Dolby Atmos?
Dolby is working closely with artists, mixers, producers, and record labels to expand the catalog of music available in Dolby Atmos. This includes Universal Music Group (UMG), the world leader in music-based entertainment, which has announced plans to release thousands of new songs, current hits, and legendary tracks in Dolby Atmos from some of the world’s biggest artists such as Bastille, The Beatles, Billie Eilish, Elton John, Lady Gaga, Luciano Pavarotti, Marvin Gaye, and The Weeknd. This will cover multiple labels across UMG and feature a wide range of genres including hip-hop, pop, rock, country, jazz, and classical music.
