For a few days, the Apple Music service offers two new types of sound quality thanks to the introduction of spatial audio compatible with Dolby Atmos and also the always sought ‘lossless’ or Lossless Audio. The Spatial audio with dynamic tracking generates immersive sound so it looks like it’s coming from around you.
The sound field stays focused on the device and the voice stays with the actor or action on the screen. And the audio Lossless comes in 24 bit 192kHz quality.
Why don’t your downloaded songs have dolby atmos
Are you one of those who use Apple Music offline and have a good library of downloaded themes? If you have listened to the songs to enjoy the new spatial audio, surely you have found that it doesn’t seem to work, and the songs sound the same as before. Is it your setup? No, although you will have to do something that will make you a bit lazy: Delete and download again.
As detailed Apple on its Support page, songs users have downloaded for offline listening have not adopted the new audio format, that is, if you play them, you will hear them as before, in stereo. To be able to hear them with spatial audio, you must first delete the library manually and then download them all again.
Spatial and stereo audio
Important: You have to have activated in settings the option ‘Download with Dolby Atmos’.
When the version of a song with spatial audio is downloaded, it also comes with the stereo version, with which users download both versions at once. If you want to hear this last one, just turn off Dolby Atmos in Settings.
