Dolby Vision support rolls out for all Xbox Series X|S owners

By Tom West,
Microsoft has announced that Dolby Vision gaming is now available to all users on Xbox Series X|S consoles and is supported on more than a hundred optimised titles.

After a stint in the Xbox Insiders program, Dolby Vision is making its way to the public today, providing you have an Xbox Series X|S console and Dolby Vision-enabled TV, of course. Using Dolby Vision will allow games to be shown in vivid colour, with expanded contrast, and better clarity in both bright and dark scenes. To achieve this, Dolby Vision automatically maps your display to give you the best picture available, as well as working alongside DirectX Raytracing, automatic low-latency mode (ALLM), Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), and the higher (120fps) refresh rates.

There are over 100 titles in the Xbox library that support Dolby Vision, and although we couldn’t get a definitive list of titles for you, Polygon did get a great response from Dolby, which says that the Dolby Vision library includes “nearly all of the native HDR titles available today that have been optimised for Xbox Series X|S such as Psychonauts 2, Gears 5, and Ori and the Will of the Wisps.”

To use Dolby Vision and see if your TV supports the feature head to Settings, General, and click on TV & display options. From here you can either click on 4K TV details to find out if your TV supports Dolby Vision, or just click on Video Modes, and hit Dolby Vision for Gaming.

Alongside the native experience offered by Xbox Series X|S optimised titles, Dolby Vision will now enhance the visuals for “thousands” of existing HDR10 and Auto HDR games.

The update goes live today for all Xbox Series X|S owners.
