LG Becomes First TV Brand to Support Apple Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos, Extending Feature to Older Models via Firmware Update

LG’s cliams to have a pioneering achievement in offering support for Apple’s Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos format on its TVs. This feature is not limited to LG’s latest models but is also being extended to older models through a firmware update. LG TVs running the webOS 4.0 smart platform or higher, including OLED models released as far back as 2018 and QNED LCD TV models from the Q90T series and above, will receive this update. Even LG’s recent lifestyle screens, such as StanbyME, StanbyME Go, and MyView Smart Monitor, will be compatible with this feature.

The update is set to roll out this week, potentially already reaching compatible LG TVs. Apple Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos aims to enhance the listening experience by creating a more immersive and expansive sound environment. Spatial Audio introduces a multi-dimensional effect that improves clarity and depth, simulating the sensation of being at the center of the sound space. Dolby Atmos complements this by providing a three-dimensional soundscape where sound effects are positioned in space rather than being confined to the location of the speakers. When used together, they further enhance immersion in a 3D sound space. It’s noted that songs and albums available in Dolby Atmos through Apple Music are labeled accordingly.
