When the Apple TV app was released for LG TVs earlier this week, users noticed that Dolby Atmos support was missing. LG now confirms that Dolby Atmos support is planned for the app and AirPlay 2.

Apple TV and Dolby Atmos

Apple's TV app, required for TV+ and iTunes movies, is available on recent TVs from Samsung and LG as well as Roku and FireTV devices. Earlier this week, LG became the first partner to offer Dolby Vision streaming from within the app. LG now confirms to FlatpanelsHD that support for Dolby Atmos will be added "later this year" for both the Apple TV app and AirPlay 2. - "Support for Dolby Atmos will be coming later this year," LG told FlatpanelsHD, referring to both the Apple TV app and AirPlay 2. No further details were provided so we cannot confirm if this applies generally to 2018, 2019 and 2020 LG TVs or only some of them.
