Apple TV app updated to support Dolby Atmos on Amazon Fire TV

25 Nov 2021 | Rasmus Larsen |

The Apple TV app, which provides access to Apple TV+ and iTunes movies, has been updated to support Dolby Atmos audio on newer Fire TV devices.

Step by step

The Apple TV app launched on Amazon's Fire TV platform in late 2019 with several limitations. Support for Dolby Vision HDR was added some time after. The latest app update also unlocks Dolby Atmos audio, as highlighted by a user on reddit (link). We have it working on Fire TV Stick 4K Max and it should also work on Fire TV Cube and possibly older Fire TV Stick devices that support Dolby Atmos (please check and let us know if you have one).
