Is Dolby Vision Worth It?

Microsoft had previously made Dolby Atmos support available in 2017. Then, in 2018, Dolby Vision streaming apps like Disney Plus and Netflix were made available to customers.

The Xbox Series X and Series S’ next-generation features will benefit games that support Dolby Vision when played on a Dolby Vision-enabled TV.

DirectX Raytracing, VRR, and gaming at up to 120FPS in brighter and bolder colors are all available to you.

How to Check if Your Display Supports Dolby Vision?

Only compatible games can be played in Dolby Vision on Xbox Series X and Series S if the display supports it.

Thankfully, determining whether your display supports Dolby Vision isn’t difficult, as Microsoft has included this feature in the Xbox Series X and Series S.

  1. When your Xbox is turned on, press the Xbox button on your Xbox controller.
  2. Go to the Settings panel using the RB button.
  3. Choose Settings from the menu.
  4. Next, from the drop-down menu select General, then TV & display options.
  5. Go to the 4K TV details.

The 4K TV details screen will show whether your TV supports Dolby Vision, which will be indicated by a Green checkmark next to Dolby Vision.

  1. Open TV & Display Options from the Settings panel.
  2. Go to Video Modes.
  3. Choose Allow Dolby Vision followed by Dolby Vision Gaming.

Your Xbox One X or Xbox One S will now be configured to play compatible Dolby Vision games.

Can You Play Previous Xbox Titles in Dolby Vision?

Because no previous-generation Xbox games were developed in Dolby Vision, old Xbox games will not be compatible.

Due to Dolby enhancements, Xbox Series X and Series S owners will see the benefits of Dolby Vision across many titles, according to Microsoft.

This means Dolby Vision-enabled displays can detect a wider range of color and contrast, resulting in improved picture quality.

Future-Proof Your Gaming Experience

A Dolby Vision-enabled display is well worth the money if you want to get the most out of your next-gen console. Dolby Vision has exceptional brightness, colors, contrast, and detail levels.

Dolby Vision will be automatically enabled in the game and on your display when compatible games are released, providing the best picture possible.
