Half a year after its initial announcement, Microsoft has brought bitstream audio-passthrough to the Xbox One.
The feature allows audio to be processed by devices outside the Xbox One itself, such as Dolby Atmos. This means that sound can be customized for your personal gaming setup.

Turning on the system is pretty simple, as Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb explained earlier today. First, you’ll have to reboot your Xbox One. That should cause some new options to appear in the Blu-ray settings page. Simply check the option for “Let my receiver decode audio,” and you’ll be good to go.
The feature should be available on all models of the Xbox One, including the Xbox One S.
