Google has announced on Twitter (through its Google Play account) that Play Movies on Android TV and Roku devices now support Dolby Digital Plus surround sound. Which is long overdue and much-requested feature. For those of you that don’t know much about Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Digital Plus is a feature which looks to provide a cinema-like level of audio playback with no additional hardware or software needed.
Being the platform’s main way of rentals this will significantly boost the audio quality of those rentals every so often or even bought movies if any of you do so. Slowly Android TV is coming together to be the central hub of all things media with all the bells and whistles. If you want to see how the sound is improved for yourself, head to Play Movies on your Android TV or Roku device.
