The Dolby Audio app for Windows is a free official app from Dolby Laboratories that's pre-installed on licensed Windows devices. If your device has Dolby surround sound technology built into it, this app will let you control the sound for your music and videos. Alternatively, you can leave it to work automatically using the presets.
The Dolby app works with PC speakers or headphones and enhances the sound from your media. It can also optimise the volume of your PC while avoiding distortion, whichever kind of device you're listening on. Alternative apps for enhancing the audio on your Windows PC include Dolby Access and Razer Surround.
What it does
The Dolby Audio application uses advanced processing technologies to make the most of the sound quality from your audio-visual media. It enhances the quality of speech, reproduces a wide sound range and allows you to turn the volume on your PC to higher levels without suffering from distortion.
It does this regardless of whether your output device is your computer's speakers or set of headphones. When using your PC's speakers, you'll also get the benefits of virtual surround sound.
The Dolby Audio app has been designed especially for PC manufacturers who preinstall it on their devices. As such, it won't work correctly on unlicensed equipment.
The presets within the app for movies, gaming, music, and voice are usually the ideal settings for each of those scenarios. However, depending on your hardware and preferences, you may wish to adjust the graphic equaliser manually. To do that, go to the 'Personalize' tab and drag the various sound components pulled down as required.
Enhance the sound
This Dolby Audio app is an excellent tool for your Windows 10 PC, laptop or tablet, as well As for your Xbox One running Windows 10. With Dolby being a long-established expert in immersive sound, the presets are normally more than adequate for the average user.
However, for the more technical listener, personalising the sound scheme is an added benefit option.
