Dolby atmos not starting automatically with google play in K8 plus

2018-03-06, 15:49 PM

I have observed Dolby Atmos is not triggered automatically when I start music app(e.g. Google Play).

 

I am sure it's not even running automatically in background. Since when I start Dolby Atmos manually while music is on, I can feel the marked enhancement in music. 

 

Is there any way to automatically statt dolby atmos by sensing any music or video?

For me, on K8 Plus updated with latest patch, Dolby atmos is activated when I plug in headphones (headphone symbol appears in upper left cornor) and swiping down from top shows Dolby atmos with elapsed time.

Since there are numerous A/V apps can can be used by users, and Dolby atmos is designed for stereo headphones and stereo speakers(which K8 Plus does not have) this behaviour makes sense. 

Starting it manually is always a fallback option.

Do I need to enable anything to detect headphone jack and start Dolby Atmos? I didn't see that happen.
I have updated my OS with 5 Jan security patch couple of weeks back.

I am on the same update (Jan 5 security patch) - no special configuration. I just tested with 2 different headphones and the 3.5mm to RCA cable which I use to play music over my stereo and the same notification pops up each time (screenshot attached).

May be because of battery optimisation.Try removing battery optimisation for dolby atmos and dolby service in battery settings.
