March Xbox One update to bring support for Dolby Digital

Update adds new sound options along with multiplayer tweaks

One of the complaints when the Xbox One game console first launched was that it lacked support for the popular Dolby Digital sound option. The console did launch with support for DTS Surround Sound. Odds are that wasn't a big deal for many users, but some out there with headphones that support Dolby Digital were unhappy.

Microsoft is gearing up to roll out its next update in early March. The update will bring with it several new options, including support for Dolby Digital reports The Digital Media Zone. The extra sound support isn’t the big item in the update.

The big update item is the upgrades to multiplayer gaming capabilities. That update will land just in time for Titanfall to hit stores. The sound options will now give uses the ability to choose the Bitstream out in the HDMI settings menu.

A new third option lets the user adjust that bitstream to suit their needs. Users that have been testing the software update say that the new options work well. More audio format support is always welcome. The update is expected to land early in March so keep an eye out for it to land.

Microsoft updated the Xbox One back in February as well. That update brought the ability to control storage directly. It also added a new battery meter to show how much power was left in the controllers. That update also left some gamers seeing nothing but a black screen when they turned the console on.
