Dolby Vision Comes to the Xbox One

If you watch a lot of movies or TV shows on your Xbox, you may be glad to know that there’s a big new feature coming to the Xbox One. Microsoft has started testing support for Dolby Vision with Insiders for the Xbox One S and the Xbox One X.

With Dolby Vision support, Xbox One owners will be able to view content from Netflix in a much richer quality. Dolby Vision support will only work with your Xbox if your TV actually supports Dolby Vision HDR, however. There are more than 400 hours of Dolby Vision-supported content on Netflix, by the way.

“When compared to a standard picture, Dolby Vision can deliver colors never seen before on a screen, incredible contrast, highlights that are up to 40 times brighter, and blacks that are 10 times darker. The result is a refined, lifelike image that will make you forget you are looking at a screen,” Microsoft said in a blog post.

Dolby Vision support is only available to Xbox Insiders in the Alpha Skip Ahead and Alpha rings, but it will be available to the general public later on.
