Apple Music for Android brings Lossless Audio And Dolby Atmos

More than 20 million tracks are available in lossless audio quality

Apple Music for Android is now rolling out Lossless Audio and Dolby Atmos. Last month, Apple unveiled a free update for Apple Music subscribers that added lossless audio streaming and spatial audio with support for Dolby Atmos. Now, Android users can access these features too.

This brings the Apple Music app for Android at par with the iPhone version, in terms of functionality. Apple Music Lossless Audio And Dolby Atmos are available for free and you don’t need to pay extra over your existing Apple Music subscription.

Apple has already said that more than 20 million tracks are available in lossless audio quality with the entire catalogue of 75 million tracks being made available in lossless by the end of this year.

You will need a compatible speaker or headphone, using the wired connection, to take advantage of Lossless Audio formats—Bluetooth wireless streaming standards do not support Hi-Res audio. For Dolby Atmos, any headphone, speaker, soundbar or wireless earbuds that support the Dolby Atmos format, will be able to deliver the wider sound.

What Is Lossless Audio In Apple Music? 

Lossless Audio is a new way to experience uncompromised sound, with bit-for-bit accuracy. Simply put, this is a much higher quality audio file that you will have access to, and the sort of detailing that you’d be able to hear on audio speakers that support lossless audio and high-res audio formats, will be unparalleled.

These High-Res and Lossless audio files are also much larger in size, if you are to save them side by side a typical high quality audio file. Apple says that a three-minute music track would be around 6 MB when streamed or downloaded in High Quality Mode.

The same duration music track in Lossless would be around 36 MB in size while the High-Resolution Lossless standard will take up as much as 145 MB for the same track.

To take advantage of Dolby Atmos and Lossless Audio on the Apple Music app for Android, simply do the following:

Apple Music for Android > Settings > Toggle Dolby Atmos to on > Toggle Download Dolby Atmos to on > Audio Quality > select Mobile Data Streaming / Wi-Fi Streaming / Downloads > Choose between High Efficiency / High Quality / Lossless / High-Resolution Lossless.

In addition, Apple Music for Android implements Automatic Crossfade, a new way to listen that blends each song into the next for a seamless experience and Search enhancements to the library, which allow you to more easily find your favourite music with in-line search.
