Xbox One getting Dolby Digital support in March

Microsoft wasn't able to include Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound support on Xbox One at launch, mostly due to time constraints. A little over three months after the console's launch, the publisher is now ready to launch the feature, alongside an upcoming system update expected to deploy in March.

According to Polygon, the system update will allow Xbox One consoles to output Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound through the use of an optical audio cable via bitstream. This audio support should also make third-party surround sound headsets compatible with the console, as well.

The March update is also slated to include updated party and friend features. The update is expected to arrive just before the release of Titanfall.
