Testing for Dolby Vision on Xbox One begins today

Brad Stephenson

Starting today, Microsoft has begun testing Dolby Vison functionality on its Xbox One S and Xbox One X video game consoles.

The testing of the feature has started with Xbox Insiders in the Alpha Skip Ahead and Alpha rings but will gradually roll out to other Insiders and, eventually, the general public in the near future.

Dolby Vision is essentially a technology that allows TVs to present media with brighter colors, darker blacks, and stronger contrast than usual. It doesn’t increase the image resolution but enhances the use of color to make what’s seen on screen more realistic and vivid.

To experience Dolby Vision content, a compatible television is needed as is media that actually supports the technology. Currently a variety of programs on Netflix support Dolby Vision such as Stranger Things and Altered Carbon.

Microsoft has provided detailed instructions for how to setup Dolby Vision on Xbox One S and Xbox One X consoles here.
