Install Dolby Atmos: Sound is a very important attribute of our mobile phones, although it rarely represents a key aspect in purchasing decisions.
We see more and more mobile phones with stereo speakers that offer a better sound experience, such as high-definition sound effects.
Dolby has been with us for years, has been present in all kinds of audio devices, and has been present in cinemas with movies as popular as Star Wars or Batman v. Superman.
Both used Dolby Atmos surround technology, which shortly afterwards gave some cell phones. It was in 2015, when the Lenovo A7000, the first mobile phone ever compatible with this technology, was introduced.
How to install Dolby Atmos on your Android mobile
But since not all phones are compatible, we will have to do a shortcut to install Dolby Atmos on any phone and thus improve its sound. There are two different methods to achieve this, depending on whether our mobile phone has roots or not . Based on the assumption that most people do not have root terminals, we start with the first formula.
Without rooted mobile
To achieve this, we only need three things: an unauthorized Android mobile phone, Google Play Music, and Dolby Atmos. The first thing we need to do is install Dolby Atmos and make some adjustments, which we describe in detail:
- Download and install Dolby Atmos applications.
- After successfully installing Dolby Atmos, restart your phone.
- Installing Google Play Music app from the Play Store (we can skip this step if it’s already installed).
- We will disable the default equalizer of our Android phone. This will avoid the “Application stopped …” error
- Open the Google Play Music app and touch the three horizontal lines in the upper left corner.
- Click the settings and scroll down.
- Go to the equalizer and open it. Now we’ll have to allow Dolby Atmos from there. (it will usually activate automatically)
- We go back to the music library and play any song.
With root phone
The following method is for all users who have previously watched their mobile. The requirements in this case are the root terminal running on Android Jelly Bean 4.3 or higher; bootloader unlocked; installed own recovery (preferably Twrp) and Dolby Atmos.zip file
- We’re pulling zip file Dolby Atmos.
- We will make a backup copy of our data (always recommended).
- Turn on your mobile device and restart in recovery mode
- Go to the installation option and look for the Dolby Atmos zip file.
- Let’s move and install.
- Wait a few seconds until you see the message that everything has been installed correctly.
- Clear the cache and Dalvik cache.
- Restart your mobile device and Dolby Atmos will be operational.
In many cases, this system helps to improve the sound of many terminals that are not as loud as they should. There should also be improved sound quality , especially when listening with headphones.
