Users of Amazon’s latest 3D-enabled smart speakers, Echo Studio, can now listen to tracks from across the Warner Music Group empire in Dolby Atmos.
Dolby Atmos for the home, originally designed for movie theaters, brings a cinema sound experience to home theaters to create powerful, moving audio that flows around listeners in a three-dimensional space. Until now the devices offered a limited library of 3D audio through Amazon Music HD.
“Listening to music is by nature a creative and emotional experience, and to take that experience a level deeper through Dolby Atmos is something we wanted to offer to both artists and fans,” Allan Coye, WMG’s SVP of digital strategy and business development, said in a statement.
WMG teamed up with Dolby to bring Dolby Atmos to its catalog of songs and albums. Dolby says it’s “working closely with artists, record labels, streaming services and consumer electronics manufacturers to make Dolby Atmos Music experiences widely accessible.”
Dolby claims that its Atmos Music technology allows music fans to “discover hidden details and subtleties with unparalleled clarity.”
